YOU DON'T have to be Gregor Mendel to see that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's baby will be good-looking. But will it be good at sports?
In lieu of DNA evidence we analyzed some DVDs. Pitt played a boxer in Snatch (6) and a brawler in Fight Club, while Jolie (3) kicked butt as Lara Croft and in Mr. and Mrs. Smith. On the other hand grandpa Jon Voight played a boxer who was beaten to death in The Champ (1). Pitt looked like a natural at track, in Across the Tracks (5), and fishing, in A River Runs Through It (4). The baby may have some country-club sports in its genes too. Pitt was on the tennis team at Kickapoo High in Springfield, Mo., and great-grandfather Elmer Voight was a golf pro.
If all else fails, the kid can become a sportswriter. Dad was a journalism major at Missouri, and Voight was right on as Howard Cosell in Ali (2).
