Michael Pitt Is the New Face of Prada Menswear
His tenure as conflicted gangster Jimmy Darmody on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire may have come to an end, but Michael Pitt has found a new role — as the face of Prada’s spring menswear collection.
The recently released images show the full-mouthed actor looking uncharacteristically comfortable in front of the camera. Pitt, who wanted to be a carpenter before making it big on Dawson’s Creek, has never fronted a fashion brand and reportedly turned down an offer to stump for Miu Miu in 2005.
Wearing a cartoonish print button down, colorful scarf and tab-front trousers, the actor (and sometimes singer) looks just a tad more approachable than the tortured characters he usually plays. Tell us: What do you think of Pitt’s Prada ads?
