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?
