Brad Pitt to rebuild fire-ravaged school with Dr Who star Peter Capaldi.

Washington, June 19 ( ANI ): Brad Pitt and new 'Doctor Who' star Peter Capaldi are currently leading efforts to restore part of a Scottish art school, which was earlier destroyed by a fire.

The 'Fight Club' star, who is a well-known architecture connoisseur and fan of MACkintosh, and Scottish actor Capaldi, who graduated from the school in 1980, have now signed on to be trustees of the appeal, Contactmusic reported.

In a video calling for financial aid, Capaldi expressed his hope that they could raise enough money to restore the building "to its former grace" and added that there is no greater symbol of the artistic spirit of Scotland than the MACkintosh building and more than that it is a symbol of where art belongs, rising as it does out of the heart of a great city.

A blaze broke out in the Glasgow School of Art (Gsa) on 23 May, wrecking parts of its MACkintosh building, which was designed by acclaimed Scottish architect Charles Rennie MACkintosh. ( ANI )
