We haven't seen Brad Pitt do a comedy in… Geez, when was the last time?!
We guess the dark Burn After Reading was the closest thing, and that was six years ago! He seems to avoid them like the plague! Actually, more than the plague! We mean, he had no trouble doing World War Z!
Maybe it's because he finally has his Oscar that Brad is considering changing things up. And he knows just the man to help - comedy guru Judd Apatow!
According to a Hollywood inside source:
"Brad has avoided doing comedies for several years but that's going to change soon. He's been making moves to butter up Judd, someone he's known for more than 15 years."
According to the source, Brad is dying to do one of Judd's personal, original comedies like Knocked Up or The 40-Year-Old Virgin. There's just one problem.
Judd is good friends with Jennifer Aniston, and he was firmly on her side during the worst days of the power couple's divorce. The source says:
"This all puts Judd in a tricky spot because of his longtime friend Jen, but the divorce was a long time ago and Judd is very interested in writing and directing Brad. He is going to do his best to make something work in the coming months."
We hope it works out! We can't wait to see Brad sink his perfect teeth into our funny bones!
