Doug Pitt is the younger brother of Brad Pitt.  The younger Pitt is recently making headlines because he was named Goodwill Ambassador of the United Republic of Tanzania.  The decision was made by Tanzania President Jakaya Kikwete.  The President remarked about Doug:

“He is natural in a sense that he is a person that has been to the country, knows the country and loves the people.  We are quite confident that he is going to do the job that he’s expected to do and he’s going to do it very well.” (source:

Doug Pitt is pretty happy with the new title and says he believes with the appointment he can help Tanzania and its people get more things done.

Some of those in attendance for the celebration were Doug’s wife Lisa Pitt, the famous designer Kenneth Cole, singer Lauryn Hill and NBA Memphis Grizzlies player Hasheem Thabeet.  Unfortunately the older Pitt, Brad, could not attend the ceremony.  Brad Pitt was grounded due to the recent volcano in Iceland and all of the disrupted flights in Europe.  The Pitt parents were unable to attend for the same reason.

Congratulations to Doug Pitt brother of Brad for his latest achievement and honor!
