*The New Orleans Saints have recruited Oscar-nominated actor and humanitarian Brad Pitt to narrate “America’s Game: 2009 New Orleans Saints,” a documentary about the team’s Super Bowl XLIV victory against the Indianapolis Colts.

The film debuts on the NFL Network on Sept. 8, the night before the Saints’ first game of the regular season.

Past celebrity narrators for the NFL’s America’s Game series include Jon Hamm, Alec Baldwin, Morgan Freeman, Gene Hackman, Ed Harris, Martin Sheen, Bruce Willis and James Gandolfini.

Pitt, who owns a home in New Orleans with Angelina Jolie, founded the Make It Right Foundation in 2006 with the goal of building 150 sustainable, affordable new houses in the city’s Katrina-devastated Ninth Ward.
