The actor goes for the Western look in The Counselor, like he did in Thelma & Louise

When it comes to successfully pulling off various (and often hairy) looks for movie roles, we tip our hat to Brad Pitt.

And when it comes to pulling off cowboy hats – well, he’s probably persuaded many a fan to move to the wild, wild West.

Shooting his latest film, The Counselor, in London Tuesday, Angelina Jolie‘s fiancé once again channeled his inner cowboy with the down-home southern accessory (and a full head of long hair). The film, which tells the story of a lawyer caught up with the drug-trafficking industry, also stars Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Michael Fassbender.

And the look is a walk – more like a horseback ride – down memory lane for Pitt, 48, who sported a similar hat-happy and mustached look in 1991’s classic Thelma & Louise. Encountering the duo (Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis) on their way out west, he played the sticky-fingered J.D. in his sexy supporting role.

He makes for a fine southern gentleman in both films, do you have a favorite?
