PoliticsandCelebs: Newt Gingrich and the A-list star he wants

posted in Misc by

Newt Gingrich wants you Brad Pitt!

Not for a political endorsement (wishful thinking), but rather he wants Pitt to portray HIM should  Hollywood ever made a movie about his life.

The Republican candidate called in to the Rich Stevens Radio Show after losing the Florida primary and when he was asked, “If Hollywood was going to do a movie about your life, who would you like to see play the lead role?”

Newt replied, “Oh, in my fantasy life? Brad Pitt … why not?”

Stevens kept prodding, “Is it because you guys look alike?”

But Newt didn’t bite.  “No, I don’t look like him at all. He’s thinner, he’s better looking, he’s younger. But you asked me if I had anyone who could play me in a movie … why not go for Brad Pitt?”

Maybe he should’ve said Chuck Norris… at least Norris is endorsing him in the race. But here’s a hint Newt… win the nomination and the presidency and maybe you’ll get that movie made.
