Lepaparazzi News Update: Brad Pitt To Play Himself In New Comedy

Pouting mega-star Brad Pitt will send himself up in a comedy called 'Chad Schmitt'.

Pitt plays Schmitt, an aspiring actor coming to Hollywood in the late 80's looking for a break. Trouble is, he bears an uncanny resemblance to the young Brad Pitt, whose star is rising rapidly. The film charts Schmitt's life as opportunity after opportunity is thwarted by the similarity he bears to the star.

Sounds ridiculously self indulgent? Well yes, it is. Sounds an awfully lot like Eddie Murphy's film Bowfinger? Well, yes it does. Will there be queues round the block to see it when it comes out in 2008? Unfortunately, yes there will...
