Spoiler alert: actor Michael Pitt might not be on the hit HBO show 'Boardwalk Empire' anymore, but it looks like he's doing just fine securing gigs like the Prada SS12 Menswear campaign. Clad in outfits very different from the '20s-inspired costumes he had to wear in 'Boardwalk Empire,' Pitt takes on an entirely different era: the 1950s.

Lensed by renowned photographer David Sims, the Prada SS12 Menswear campaign features Pitt as a golden age of Hollywood icon. According to the press release, this ad campaign “explores the language of male role models from the rock star to the playboy, from the self-reflective introvert to the engaging and humorous farceur.” The collection's fits, patterns and layers achieve this vision beautifully.
