Clayton Davis Senior Awards Editor SPOILER ALERT: This story contains spoilers from “Looking for Love,” the season finale of FX’s “Dave,” now streaming on Hulu.
Brad Pitt was held hostage, rapped in autotune, shot with an arrow and revealed his “real name” is Luke — all during Wednesday night’s season finale of FX’s “Dave.” In fact, the Hollywood A-lister might bring the underrated dark comedy its first series nom after three seasons.
Playing himself, Pitt will be among the guest acting submissions for the dark comedy, Variety has learned exclusively. Taking place on a night full of twists and turns, the 46-minute “Looking for Love” episode — directed by Kitao Sakurai and written by Dave Burd and Vanessa McGee — shows Dave being held hostage by a superfan who just wants to “hang out” with Pitt, an actor and aspiring rap star.
It all starts when Pitt has a walk-on role in Lil Dicky’s music video, set up by his friend Rachel McAdams. Pitt then stops by Dave’s house, where the two are held hostage by a superfan named Bella (played by Tenea Intriago).Read more on variety.com
