Count Brad Pitt
as one of the Hill's power politicos.
The actor, 45, will be in Washington, D.C. – where partner Angelina Jolie
, 33, is filming her upcoming movie Salt
– on Thursday and will meet with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
"They will be discussing Make It Right
, a project launched in 2007 to construct affordable and environmentally-sustainable housing for low-income residents of the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans who lost their homes as a result of Hurricane Katrina," said a statement released Wednesday afternoon by Speaker Pelosi's office.
Pitt and Pelosi, 68, are slated to kick off their meeting at 3:30 p.m., after posing for photos for the press in the Capitol Building.
