Brad Pitt appeared without partner Angelina Jolie in New York last night for the premier of the cartoon feature “Megamind” but he was clearly on daddy duty. He had Maddox, 9, and Pax, 6, in tow for the dressed down affair.

Angelina was back in Budapest, Hungary directing her own movie, a love story set in war-torn Bosnia that has drawn protests from women’s groups.

Brad provides the voice of Metro Man in the animated movie feature, which also stars Tina Fey and Ben Stiller.

Pitt, 46, was definitely dressed down in an all-black outfit of leather boots, black jeans, shirt, woolly hat and thick jacket. Stiller was also dressed in black.

Fey was slightly more stylish in a black and white cocktail dress, but the bloomer-like waist made her hips look huge. Her hair looked blow dried and unstyled.

Brade definitely looked like he wished he was somewhere else. He never bothered to remove his leather gloves for the photos, and rarely took his hands out of his pockets.

Maybe his mind was on Budapest where he tended to the couple’s six children while Angelina filmed.

Brad is already reportedly set for his next movie, a comedic crime story called “Cogan’s Trade.”

The film will pair him once again with Director Andrew Dominik, who helmed “The Assassination of Jesse James,” which tanked at the box office.

Sam Rockwell, Casey Affleck, Mark Ruffalo and Javier Bardem are also up for roles, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
