Brad Pitt has finally agreed to appear in person on hit American MTV show TRL, after winning an award for never showing up.

The movie hunk has appeared on TRL many times, but never from the Times Square studio in New York - despite constant requests from the show's producers.

But, after giggling about his Biggest Star To Never Have Appeared on TRL Award via satellite yesterday (13APR04) during the telecast of the second annual TRL AWARDS, Pitt has now confirmed he'll make his debut on the show on 3 May (04).
