Brad Pitt even looks hot in a headset.

The star of Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Nazi-scalping action flick Inglourious Basterds graces the August cover of Wired magazine, and has a first look.

Pitt, 45, sports a wireless cell phone headset and gives advice – in his Inglourious character – on a variety of subjects, including conduct at work, etiquette and those sometimes awkward cyber dilemmas. "Who cares if your Warcraft wife is really a dude," Pitt is quoted as saying on the cover. "If it's good, don't check under the hood."

According to Wired, Pitt was intrigued by the magazine's May Mystery issue, which featured Star Trek director/writer J.J. Abrams, and he wanted to break away from the traditional celebrity magazine story. For the photo shoot last month, Pitt came alone to the Smashbox Studios in West Hollywood and was photographed by portraitist Dan Winters.

The August issue of Wired hits newsstands July 21. Inglourious Basterds is due in theaters Aug. 21.
