Executive producer Brad Pitt makes his Lego Masters debut

Brad Pitt, an executive producer of Fox’s Lego Masters since its inception, has yet to make an appearance on the show — until now.

In the season 3 trailer of the brick-building competition series, debuting exclusively on EW, Pitt makes his debut — as a minifig, naturally.

In the clip, the minifig (that’s short for minifigure — Lego speak for the little non-brick Lego characters) representing host Will Arnett walks up to Pitt and asks him what he’s doing here. Pitt’s minifig points out he’s the executive producer, and whips out his Lego phone to tell someone presumably involved in the production to “make it better.”

The trailer, which was just shown at the Lego panel at San Diego Comic-Con, includes Chris Pratt and former NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon also making their debut on the Lego Masters stage.

Season 3 of Lego Masters debuts on Fox Sept. 21, immediately after the season 8 premiere of The Masked Singer, from 9-10 p.m. ET/PT.

Pitt’s Ladybug in upcoming Bullet Train is the ‘most fun’ role of his career

Hollywood star Brad Pitt says he found the “most fun” role of his career in Ladybug, “a chump” of an assassin, in the upcoming action film, Bullet Train.

The Oscar-winning actor headlines the Sony project directed by Deadpool 2 filmmaker David Leitch, who previously served as Pitt’s stunt double in many movies such as Fight Club and Troy.

Pitt said Bullet Train came to him at the peak of the coronavirus pandemic and felt like a breath of fresh air.

“When this script came along, it was like five- six months into the pandemic. There was this air of depression, we were all getting a little crazy and this film was a really funny piece,” he added.

“Also concurrently, it was with an old friend of mine David Leitch. We had an actor-stuntman relationship. He was my stunt double for Fight Club, Mexican, Troy and Mr and Mrs Smith. So it was really to come back around a full circle. But this time Leitch, my man, was the boss,” Pitt said during a virtual global press conference of the film.

Meet the Designer Behind Brad Pitt’s Skirt

At 58, Brad Pitt told Otessa Moshfegh in the cover story for GQ’s August issue, he’s entering what he considers to be the “last semester or trimester” of his career. That means picking up new hobbies, rethinking his work, and—yes—experimenting with his look. While promoting his latest movie Bullet Train in Europe over the last few days, he’s been wearing a string of very funky custom outfits, which were revealed to be created by private-label designer Haans Nicholas Mott, that seem to speak to all of these things at once. In brief remarks emailed to GQ, Mott gave us an inside look at his work with one of the biggest stars on earth.

Mott started his referral-only private clothing practice in early 2010, and also co-founded the ready-to-wear label Anecho with fellow designer Anastasia Khodkina in 2015. His process, according to a representative for the designer, is rigorous and intimate, in order to yield clothing “with outcomes determined by the individuals inhabiting the garments.” In Pitt’s case, the designer collaborated with the actor directly: “i love working with mr pitt because he has a clear sense of how he wants to be in the world and we make work in that space, i.e. mr pitt proposing an espresso linen skirt to go with the linen jacket,” Mott tells GQ, in all lowercase, via email.

Brad Pitt says retirement still a long way off

Brad Pitt scotched talk of imminent retirement as he travelled to Paris for the premiere of his Jackie Chan-inspired action caper “Bullet Train”.

The 58-year-old had worried fans that his acting days may be numbered after a GQ interview last month in which he said he was in the “last semester” of his career.

But Pitt told AFP: “I’m not getting out by any means.

“It seems that might have been taken as a statement of retirement. That’s not what I was saying,” he said.

“I’m over that hump of middle age and so I’m looking at that last leg… how do I want to spend that time? At my age, you’ve made enough mistakes… now there’s a comfort in applying that kind of wisdom.”
