Before They Were Stars: Brad Pitt on “Dallas”

Before he found stardom, Brad Pitt had to support himself by doing numerous guest spots on TV shows, appearing in commercials, and starring in lousy horror movies such as Cutting Class. I could probably spend an entire week doing “Before They Were Stars” features on him, but today, I will focus on his first major acting role, which was a four-episode stint on Dallas (my mother’s all-time favourite show!) as the dim-witted boyfriend of Priscilla Presley’s daughter. I remember back when Brad Pitt first became a star in the early nineties and a lot of people initially thought he was just a pretty boy who coasted on his looks and had a very little acting talent. While he has more than proved himself as an actor since then, you really won’t see many flashes of talent in these clips from Dallas.
