London: It seems Brad Pitt enjoyed putting on an Elvis-inspired swagger for his role as a superhero in ‘Megamind’.

Tom McGrath, director of the animated DreamWorks comedy, said Brad "jumped on board" when it came to recording his character.

"Brad Pitt was fantastic to work with, he``s the perfect Metro Man," a news daily quoted the filmmaker as saying.

"He really got into it with his Elvis swagger.

In fact, when we recorded him he didn’t want to sit behind a podium, he wanted to walk around the stage holding this mic and it really suited his character," said McGrath.
