Brad Pitt Scores New Endorsement, Will Star in Cadillac Commercials in China From E! Online: Brad Pitt wasn't nominated for an Oscar this year, but the Killing Them Softly star is still a hot commodity on the product endorsement circuit.
E! News has exclusively learned that the much-parodied Chanel No. 5 spokesman has agreed to endorse Cadillac in print ads and TV commercials that will air in China.
Pitt, who a source says will earn $3 million for his promo work, will shoot a spot for the car campaign next week in Los Angeles.
Cadillac had no comment on the hiring, and Pitt's reps have yet to respond to calls to comment.
But lest one think this is just a high-paying job for a random automotive product, E! News has been told Pitt has long kept a Cadillac Escalade in his fleet of vehicles.
Hmm, maybe Pitt's new gig had something to do with him joining Sina Weibo, China's version of Twitter, earlier this week. Not to mention his first and only tweet so far.
"It is the truth. Yup, I'm coming...," he wrote cryptically. Well, not so cryptically, after all.

Brad Pitt Playing Pontius Pilate? From Empire Online: As revealed last autumn, Warners are planning to add to the recent spate of proposed Biblical epics with its own yarn based around Roman prefect Pontius Pilate. Deadline now reveals that Brad Pitt is circling the lead role. Reports that it's because he wants to wash his hands of World War Z remain unverified.
The familiar version of Pilate is more or less the one played - rather well - by Hristo Shopov in Mel Gibson's The Passion Of The Christ, and by David Bowie in Scorsese's The Last Temptation Of Christ - although perhaps you prefer Telly Savalas in The Greatest Story Ever Told or Michael Palin's portrayal in Life Of Brian. He's the politician who orders Jesus' crucifixion, securing himself a role as one of history's greatest villains.
There is plenty more to his story than that, however, and the idea of showing the character's younger years as a ferocious military badass under the rule of Emperor Tiberius might perhaps explain the attraction to the historically, epically-inclined Brad Pitt of Wolfgang Petersen's Troy.
Pitt, just coming off the aforementioned World War Z, Steve McQueen's Twelve Years A Slave and Ridley Scott's The Counsellor, has yet to commit, but Deadline believes that may soon change.
Warners seem to have great confidence in Vera Blasi's Pontius Pilate screenplay, which blends historical and fictional elements, and features juicy walk-ons for the likes of Salome and Caligula. If it happens, it'll follow Darren Aronofsky's Noah, and possible other Biblical projects from the likes of Will Smith and, tantalisingly, Paul Verhoeven.
Brad Pitt and John Legend's Joint Praise of Obama's Pot Stance From E! Online: Brad Pitt and John Legend are high on one thing: President Barack Obama's decision to not go jail-crazy over pot users.
The two are executive producers on the documentary The House I Live In, which takes a critical look at America's war on drugs, and they—along with fellow producers Danny Glover and Russell Simmons—are praising Obama for not making federal prosecution of recreational marijuana users in certain states a "top priority."
"President Obama should be commended for expressing the will of the people in Colorado and Washington," the producers said in a statement, calling out voter approval in those states to legalize pot sale and pot use.
"Our jails are overburdened with nonviolent drug users, too often serving harsher sentences than violent criminals," they added. "The president's statement reflects a saner and more sensible drug policy, and a step away from the decades-long failed war on drugs."

Brad Pitt Talks Fatherhood and Turning the Big 5-0 From E! Online: Brad Pitt might be a getting a lot of pressure from his kids to marry Angelina Jolie, but it's probably safe to say he doesn't mind.
After all, the actor did tell Good Morning America on Wednesday that when it comes to being a father, "I love it. I love it," adding that "it turns everything on its head."
What's also going through Pitt's head is the fact that he'll be turning 50 (yes, 50!) next year.
"I've given a lot of thought to it," said Pitt, who turns 49 in December. "You become very aware of time and also, being a father, everything is time allocation for me now, making sure I spend my time wisely and doing the things that are important to me and spending the time I need to with my family."
