It looks like Hollywood heart-throb Brad Pitt is desperate to cash in on the success of gay cowboy movie Brokeback Mountain, for the actor has allegedly ordered his agents to find him a role that has him playing a gay man in a new movie.

According to a source, Pitt became keen to play the part of a gay man after seeing the critical acclaim received by Brokeback Mountain.

"Brad has asked his people to find him a script to play a gay man. He's seen the critical acclaim that Brokeback Mountain has won and he wants a piece of it," The Sun quoted the source, as saying.

"He wants it to be a story that appeals to both men and women and he wants it to be the edgiest work he's done," the source added.

And though the actor is aware that he will be shocking a lot of his fans, he's nonetheless determined to go ahead with his gay plans.

"Brad knows it would be seen as shocking to take on a gay role because he's seen as such a heart-throb. But he has never shied away from taking on controversial films, and he has often chosen to do smaller, more challenging movies, rather than go for the big box-office smash," the source said.
