When he signed on to a remake of 1976's The Bad News Bears, Billy Bob Thornton knew he was messing with a classic. But the onetime aspiring pro baseball player is putting his own spin on Coach Buttermaker, the cranky leader of a ragtag team of Little Leaguers. Thornton, 49, spoke to PEOPLE about getting back to the baseball diamond, being a dad (he has three kids from previous marriages and a 10-month-old daughter, Bella, with girlfriend Connie Angland) and ex-wife Angelina Jolie's new addition to her family.
