People try calling Brad Pitt, get elderly dude instead

Seventy-seven-year-old Richard Perkins is no Brad Pitt. When Perkins' phone rings, it's probably someone who wants to speak to the Hollywood hunk.

Perkins' New Hampshire phone number is listed on a celebrity Web site as a way to reach Brad Pitt. The retired teacher says he had to leave his phone off the hook to get some sleep.

But his Life Alert system took the dead phone as a call for help. Firefighters burst into his house only to find him sitting in his living room. Perkins says he has no idea how his number ended up the Internet. Article here.
