Brad tempted by 'normal guy' role

Brad Pitt and Mireille Enos star in new zombie movie World War Z

Brad Pitt has said his World War Z character appealed to him because he was just a normal guy.

The Hollywood heartthrob and star of the zombie adaptation said the fact his character Gerry was fighting to save the Earth without any super powers made it a tempting role for him.

He said: "Gerry can't fly, he can't beat up bad guys. He has no super powers. He's a dad, with a burning need to keep his family safe. To do that, he can only rely on his intellect, his instincts and his experience."

In World War Z, Brad's character Gerry is married to Karen, played by star of the US Killing Mireille Enos, and Inglourious Basterds star Brad was full of praise for her.

He said: "Mireille is a brilliant partner on set. She can embody the lovingness of the mother and flip to the ferociousness of the lioness protecting her young in an instant. As in any great relationship, she carried half the weight - a true ally."

World War Z is released in cinemas on June 21.
