Hollywood, CA - Having heard that former Carson sidekick and mail-order contest icon Ed Mcmahon is in danger of having his Beverly Hills home foreclosed on, actress Angelina Jolie and husband Brad Pitt have agreed to adopt the octogenarian celebrity.
"He's a bit older and a lot whiter than our other adoptees", the starlet quipped, "but the need is clearly there. Hollywood has not been exempt from the recession or the housing crisis, and those of us who are still A-listers have to remember the ones that went before us."
If all goes well, Mcmahon should be able to go directly to his adoptive parents without the need for a temporary stay in foster care. Word has it that a private room with bowls of hard candy and DVDs of old "Matlock" episodes has already been prepared for him at the power couple's residence.
