Newt Gingrich: Brad Pitt could play me in a movie

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?

    The only thing those two have in common is ego.

    Yes Pitt could play Newt, if he gained 238 pounds and cut off his head.

    You can be played by either the Michelin guy or the marshmellow guy from Ghostbusters.

    Talk about an inflated ego. I'm thinking Danny Devito would be perfect.

    Roger, that's an insult towards pigs. Newt Gingrich can only be played by himself. He's that repulsive.

    If they were still with us, the only choices would be Moe Howard, Curly Howard, Shemp Howard and Larry Fine. For those too young to recognize those names, the actors who were at various times the principals of the Three Stooges.

    Rosie O'Donnell as Newt Gingrich, Mel Gibson as Rick Santorum, Clint Eastwood as Ron Paul and an inanimate carbon rod as Mitt Romney.
