I noticed in some of the manga that I've been reading that Brad Pitt is appearing in them.
He appears in Yakitate Japan under the name Brad Kidd, showing up several times during the series (both anime & manga) , mostly related to the Pierrot.
And in Arakawa Under The Bridge, it's said that he could be their neighbour on Venus
I know it's not unheard of for hollywood movie stars to show up in shows, but he appears noticeably enough in Yakitate Japan and the second occurrence made me think there might be more to it.
Is there anything behind the choice of western actor? I mean, they could have chosen Tom Cruise or someone else.
Does he cameo in any other shows?
