We've all played the "which famous person could play me in the story of my life" casting game, and Newt Gingrich has joined in.
According to TMZ, the Republican candidate for the presidential nomination has said that if he had to pick someone to portray him in a film, he'd pick straight from the A-list.
"Brad Pitt," Gingrich told radio host Rich Stevens Tuesday of who could portray him. "Why not go for it?"
Admittedly, Gingrich doesn't look like the Oscar nominee, but hey, it would be in a movie.
"No, I don't look like him at all," Gingrich said. "He's thinner, he's better looking, he's younger. But you asked me if I could have anyone who could play me in a movie, why not go for Brad Pitt?"
Good point, Gingrich. Alright, so let's say you were casting a movie on the GOP presidential nominee race - who would you pick to portray Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul?
