Wow! What an honor!
While Brad Pitt and his family are stranded in Europe because of the pesky volcanic ash still in the air and grounding planes, his younger brother, Doug Pitt, has been named the first Goodwill Ambassador to the United Republic of Tanzania by the country's President, Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete!
"He is natural in a sense that he is a person that has been to the country, knows the country and loves the people. We are quite confident that he is going to do the job that he's expected to do and he's going to do it very well."
Pitt is a photojournalist and apparently runs a charity that supplies African countries with fresh water!
Congratulations are certainly in order! We bet he's going to do a fantastic job!
