New Orleans residents are keen on having Brad Pitt run for mayor of their troubled city, citing the time and money he has invested in rebuilding the Big Easy, the Hollywood Scoop is reporting.

Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been part-time residents in New Orleans since purchasing a home there in 2007. He has even built eco friendly homes for the homeless. 


Sonny Bono was once mayor of Palm Springs, and Clint Eastwood was once mayor of Carmel, Calif., so there is a precedent for this sort of thing.  Still, having a former “Sexiest Man Alive” preside over a city council meeting could be a little distracting.
