The Film: Johnny Suede tells the story of a rock-star wannabe, who believes that his life will be complete if he acquires a pair of black suede shoes (which is only partly true.)
Timothy Hutton was the producer’s favourite for the role of Johnny, though director Tom DiCillo insisted that Brad Pitt was the man for the part.
The Role: The character of Johnny Suede was inspired by the resurgence of rockabilly in the mid ’80s.
Pitt sports an impressively inched Pompadour hairdo, which makes him look uncannily like Johnny Bravo. Coincidence?!
