As promised โ€” and endlessly promoted โ€” Brad Pitt turned up on the Today show this morning for an "exclusive" talk about his designs for low-income, environmentally-friendly housing for residents of hurricane-ravaged and federally-neglected city of New Orleans. (It's been almost 2 1/2 years, people!) The thing is, although viewers got a nice peek at Brad himself, the homes he helped design were hidden under pink, Christo-type shrouds in the background. WTF? Anyway, at least we got to see his adorably puffy morning face. Clip above.
