Brad PittBrad Pitt has been credited with pulling in the stars for a "We Are The World"-type comedy recording session 'outing' Ben Affleck and funnyman Jimmy Kimmel as gay lovers. Harrison Ford, Don Cheadle, Cameron Diaz and Robin Williams were among the celebrities who agreed to sing for the "I'm F---ing Ben Affleck" video, which aired on Kimmel's post-Oscars show on Sunday night.

Kimmel immediately turned to Affleck after his girlfriend, comedienne Sarah Silverman, filmed the infamous "I'm F---ing Matt Damon" video with The Bourne Supremacy star for Kimmel's recent fifth anniversary show.

But Kimmel had no idea it would be so easy to book other stars to take part in his own comedy video.

Ford reportedly came on board because he was a fan of the Silverman/Damon skit, but stars started tumbling when Pitt agreed to play a FedEx delivery guy in the skit.

Jimmy Kimmel Live spokesman Scott Igoe tells Billboard.com that Pitt's involvement prompted other stars to come forward and, within 24 hours, he had booked Good Charlotte stars Joel and Benji Madden, Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and Macy Gray. That was followed by calls from Cheadle, Williams, Diaz, Huey Lewis, Meat Loaf and Josh Groban, among others.

The stars met and filmed their comedy recording session at Henson Studios in Hollywood earlier this month.

And Igoe admits many stars, like Ashlee Simpson, Paul McCartney and country couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, were devastated when they realized they wouldn't be able to be a part of the Oscar-night TV fun.

Igoe says, "Half the emails I've gotten the day after have been from publicists so disappointed that their clients weren't in it (the video)."
