The Fallen Idol starring Brad Pitt!
19 January 2007 | by SylSee all my reviews

This episode has Brad Pitt as an obnoxious self-centered rock singer, JOnathan Keith. Ben Seaver is a huge fan and would love to see him but they can't get tickets. Jason went to Cornell Medical School with Jonathan's father who gets tired of being asked for tickets. Maggie pulls it off by getting tickets through her television station. Of course, they go to a private sound check where Jason gets Jonathan to sign his album (remember the records?). Well, anyway Jason overhears Jonathan being nasty to his road manager and bodyguard who was supposed to protect him from fans. Anyway, Ben gets a taste of Jonathan's bad medicine and decides whether he wants to go his concert. Look, it's a not great episode but it's interesting to see Brad Pitt before Jennifer and Angelina. It's nice to see him in this episode that just seemed like yesterday.
