Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt wasn't nominated for an Oscar this year, but the Killing Them Softly star is still a hot commodity on the product endorsement circuit.

E! News has exclusively learned that the much-parodied Chanel No. 5 spokesman has agreed to endorse Cadillac in print ads and TV commercials that will air in China.

Pitt, who a source says will earn $3 million for his promo work, will shoot a spot for the car campaign next week in Los Angeles.

Cadillac had no comment on the hiring, and Pitt's reps have yet to respond to calls to comment.

But lest one think this is just a high-paying job for a random automotive product, E! News has been told Pitt has long kept a Cadillac Escalade in his fleet of vehicles.

Hmm, maybe Pitt's new gig had something to do with him joining Sina Weibo, China's version of Twitter, earlier this week. Not to mention his first and only tweet so far.

"It is the truth. Yup, I'm coming...," he wrote cryptically. Well, not so cryptically, after all.
