    Brad Pitt hasn’t thrown his hat in the ring to be mayor of his adopted hometown, New Orleans. Others have done that for him, launching a grassroots campaign complete with nifty T-shirts touting "Brad Pitt for Mayor" But he's more than willing to serve, the actor told TODAY's Ann Curry with a self-deprecating laugh. "If chosen, would you run?" Curry asked in the prerecorded interview that ran Thursday. "Yeah," Pitt said. "Would you serve?" "Yeah. I'm running on the gay marriage, no religion, legalization and taxation of marijuana platform," he joked.

    Any real candidate for mayor would kill for the kind of publicity the city's most famous non-candidate is getting. Michael DeMocker / The Times-Picayune Brad Pitt may be New Orleans' favorite son, but he can't be mayor ... at least, not yet. Brad Pitt -- he of cinematic, philanthropic and Angelina Jolie lore -- will face questions Thursday morning about a possible run for mayor of New Orleans on NBC's "Today" show. The segment will mark the first time New Orleans' most famous adopted son has publicly addressed the question that has lit up the Internet and brightened parlor conversations...

    Quentin Tarantino has made an eye-catching return to the Cannes Film Festival with Inglourious Basterds, an epic World War II movie set in Nazi-occupied France. Tarantino swaps fact for pulp fiction in Inglourious Basterds, a comic revenge fantasy about Jewish freedom fighters bringing down the Nazis in 1944. Brad Pitt plays Lieutenant Aldo Raine, the leader of a gang of Jewish-American soldiers operating in occupied France whose self-proclaimed mission is "to kill as many Nazis as possible". They succeed in Tarantino's usual grisly-comic fashion, carving swastikas into the foreheads of any German soldier they do not scalp. The plot culminates...

Sources say the actor’s mom Jane Pitt dislikes Jolie and feels the actress is “no good.” “[Brad’s parents] sat him down and basically told him she’s trouble and no good.

Brad’s mother Jane is sick about what’s going on and has not been able to sleep well,” says an insider. “Jane would like nothing more than for Brad and Jen to reunite.” Pitt is rumored to be talking...

    Hollywood films rarely even attempt the sweep and heartbreak of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a bewitching, at times overpowering movie that seems likely to win about 50 Oscars. There aren’t actually that many Oscars to hand out, but I wouldn’t put it past the Academy to invent some new categories. Based on but greatly expanded from an F. Scott Fitzgerald short story, the film by Fight Club director David Fincher proves that this gifted director can deploy all of his visual gifts to create a richly satisfying, emotionally engaging, and more than a bit schmaltzy old-time romance with...

    Opening on Christmas Day, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is the result of an unexpected cinematic collaboration between scriptwriter Eric Roth, who penned Forrest Gump, and director David Fincher, whose credits include Se7en, Fight Club, and Zodiac. Very loosely based on an F. Scott Fitzgerald story, and starring Brad Pitt as Button, the film is about a life lived in reverse. Born with the physical features of a man in his eighties, Button grows backward into middle age, youth, and infancy. Fincher and Roth turn Button’s peculiar life, at the center of which is his star-crossed love for Daisy...

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration cited the university on Nov. 21 for two "serious" violations, including failing to provide adequate training for lab technicians and insufficient safety equipment at Pitt's $18 million Regional Biocontainment Laboratory in Biomedical Science Tower 3 in Oakland. Inside the lab, the university uses primates to develop vaccines with a focus on dengue, influenza, avian flu and tuberculosis.

    And before the Jolie-Pitt clan arrived in town, a member of the film’s production company looked into having the family stay at the resort, but Pitt’s people balked at the price. Sources familiar with the inquiry say that Pitt was interested in the Litton House, a 2,600-square-foot residence separate from the main property, which costs about $2,000 a night. Pitt's offer, via the production company, was reportedly only $3,000 for a 30-day stay. That's a whopping 95 percent discount. (The Jolie-Pitt’s opted instead to rent a house near the shooting location.)

    Mexican filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu talks with Bert Rebhandl about his third film "Babel", what it's like to shoot with Brad Pitt in places where no one knows him, and the Latin American Left: "I represent the Left today, a post-ideological Left. Ideologies divide things into black and white, superior and inferior. Bush is a fanatic, a nutcase who sees an axis of evil everywhere he looks. Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, who stylises himself as Bush's adversary, is also a radical, not a leftist. He too sees an axis of evil wherever he looks, and in that he's just like...

    So they made just one tiny mistake (that they never apologized for). DUmmie trumad now wants to know in this THREAD, "Am I to discount everything TruthOut has ever written because of one incident?" He is referring, of course, to the Non-indictment that Dares Not Speak It's Name, namely the Non-indictment of Karl Rove last May 12 despite TruthOut staking its reputation on that "fact." Also putting themselves on the line were the Truthout publisher and fashion photographer, Marc Ash, star reporter Jason Leopold (pictured above) who appears in this thread to face the music, and Truthout editor, William...

    After two days of getting his first up-close look at post-Katrina New Orleans, Brad Pitt said Friday he was shocked at the devastation that remains almost a year later. "I was not prepared," the actor said, describing how he drove for miles and saw street after street of devastation. Pitt was in New Orleans to give an update on a project he's promoting a competition to choose ecologically sound designs for rebuilding neighborhoods. "There's a big opportunity here," he said, to rebuild the city using energy-efficient building materials and appliances that would improve quality of life, particularly in low-income communities.

    Angelina Jolie and her paramour Brad Pitt may fancy themselves as altruists for all their much-ballyhooed Third World philanthropy, but Namibia’s National Society For Human Rights have labeled the couple “colonial overlords.” Yikes! The Conservative Voice reports that the human rights group has accused the globe-trotting do-gooders of “using heavy-handed and brutal tactics” in persuading the African country’s government to secure their total privacy in the weeks leading up to the May 27th birth of their daughter, Shiloh. “To shut down a national border so she can give birth in peace is a massive abuse of power,” said a NSHR...

    BEIJING, June 22 -- Namibia's National Society for Human Rights (NSHR) branded the couple "colonial overlords" and accused them of taking over the African country when Shiloh Nouvel was born this month. An NSHR spokesman said: "To shut down a national border so she can give birth in peace is a massive abuse of power." The human rights campaigners claim Angelina and Brad "used heavy-handed and brutal tactics" to persuade the Namibian government to agree to their demands. Meanwhile, Angelina has confessed she was "terrified" while giving birth to her daughter. The "Tomb Raider" star has spoken out about the...

    There was a striking moment during the interregnum last November/December (2000) that has stayed with me ever since. Inside Politics was running 24 hours a day on CNN, you will recall. I was watching one evening, several days into the theft, and there was Judy Woodruff interviewing conservative columnist Bob Novak. The question of the hour was whether or not Al Gore should just quit and go home. On this night, Novak was pointing to a public poll that had been running on the web site. You know these polls: log on to a news site and give your...

So I took a phrase from the original article, sought significant quantities and hit search.Bingo.Here is what the...

    FREUDENSCHADE, BABY! There was a sense of inevitability about it from the start. The DUmmies are greated with joyous news and they break out their victory champagne to celebrated the event BEFORE it happened. Then, as surely as Lucy pulling away the football from Charlie Brown, the event BACKFIRES on them. Such has been the case over and over and over again. Jeb Bush being defeated in 2002? Re-elected by a landslide. John Kerry winning the election in 2004 due to his landslide in the exit polls? Defeated at the real polls. And, most recently, Karl Rove being indicted...
