Brad Pitt Touched by Evil

Giddyup! Check out this amazing transformation of Brad Pitt into a crazy-haired Kramer look-alike for the New York Times magazine's "Hollywood Issue." The theme for the issue is "Touch of Evil," which celebrates some of the year's best performances by asking actors such as Kirsten Dunst and Rooney Mara to turn to the dark side.

On the New York Times website the photos come to life with music and video, but be warned: Some of these creepy images may haunt you.

Not least of which is Pitt, who stares wildly as he moves his head slowly toward the camera, moths flying about him, mouth open in a silent scream, doing odd things with his tongue.

The star told the New York Times that in the photo he is channeling ''Peter Lorre -- with a dose of Kramer.'' According to the magazine, the inspiration for the image came from the David Lynch movie "Eraserhead."
