During the World Series game on Saturday night, Americans—especially those who watch baseball—heard Brad Pitt’s voice endorse Joe Biden for president in a new campaign ad for the Democratic candidate.
Over footage of Biden meeting, hugging, and laughing with people of varying ages and identities, Pitt says: “America is a place for everyone—those who chose this county, those who fought for it—some Republicans, some Democrats, and most, just somewhere in between, all looking for the same thing: Someone who understands their hopes, their dreams, their pain, to listen, to bring people together. To get up every day and work to make life better for families like yours. To look you in the eye, treat you with respect, and tell you the truth. To work just as hard for the people who voted for him as those who didn’t. To be a president for all Americans.”
You can watch the full ad, which is only 55 seconds long, here:

Pitt has always seemed to choose his political moments carefully, but he’s not one to shy away from discussing his beliefs. At the top of his acceptance speech for best supporting actor at the 2020 Oscars earlier this year (can you believe that was actually this year?), Pitt made a quick but pointed political comment.
“They told me I only had 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt said, in a reference to President Trump’s former national security adviser, who offered to testify during Trump’s impeachment trial. The Senate voted against subpoenas and witnesses during the trial, thus inspiring this Oscar-stage comment.
He also appeared as Dr. Anthony Fauci on Saturday Night Live this spring, bringing us all a little joy during a dark time. He clearly continues to do that.
