Man at His Best

Brad Pitt will star in Netflix's upcoming semi-biographical military satire, War Machine. He plays General Stanley McChrystal, "who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by a journalist's no-holds-barred exposé," as the official synopsis reads. He has grey hair and looks like sexy dad GI Joe. He also has an accent. Take a listen:

It's a gruff Southern one. It's a deep, manly growl, scratchy from years of yelling at troops. And, damn, it sounds so familiar. It's like I've heard it before talking about hunting Nazis or something. Hmmm, I can't put my finger on it.
