Should Brad Pitt play Newt Gingrich in a movie? They're like twins, no?
Julianne Moore is playing Sarah Palin in HBO's upcoming movie, but if Hollywood made a film about Newt Gingrich, who should play the former House speaker and presidential candidate?
Gingrich has an idea: Brad Pitt.
In an interview with the Florida-based Rich Stevens radio show, Gingrich was asked who should play him in a movie about his life.
Gingrich had a little fun with the answer. "In my fantasy life?" he asked. "Brad Pitt ... why not?"
Uh, because you look nothing like each other? Because Pitt is 20 years younger, quite a few pounds lighter and, well ... one of the sexiest men alive?
Gingrich readily admitted the two are far from twins, telling Stevens: "I don't look like him at all. He's thinner, he's better-looking, he's younger. ... Look if you're gonna go for it ... let your imagination soar."
Some say Rainn Wilson in his role as Dwight Schrute on "The Office" would be a better match. (Check out the resemblance.) Now that's good casting. (Also, don't miss a young Rick Santorum and ... McLovin from "Superbad.")
Sure. Pitt as Newt. Whatever. Who do you think should play the candidate, and who would you cast as his wife Callista? Or as Mitt Romney? Tell us on Facebook.
