Doug Pitt is a funny, good-looking guy just making his way in the world. But if you think he looks a little bit like another Pitt – Brad – you’d be right. They’re brothers.
Doug is now getting his own 15 minutes of fame in an ad for an Australian cell-phone company.

We’re introduced to Doug on the front steps of his tidy suburban home and informed that “he’s the second most famous Pitt in his family.” To say that he comes across as affable is an understatement. We see his kitchen (Doug calls himself “something of a gourmet”); his “man room” where he taps his foot to some 70s rock (on headphones, since his family doesn’t share his taste in music); his white minivan; and his family room. “This is the family living room, where I usually don’t get to pick what’s on the TV,” he deadpans with an aplomb that would make any actor proud.
The video’s good for a pretty great laugh, but while you watch, ponder this: as Doug shoots some hoops, washes his car, rides his bike and takse his dog for a walk, is it possible that somewhere his famous brother is watching all this normalcy with something like envy?
Nah, we didn’t think so either.
