Newt Gingrich Brad Pitt Movie
February 2, 2012 by staff
Newt Gingrich Brad Pitt Movie, Time to get the old-man makeup from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – Newt Gingrich thinks Brad Pitt should play him in a movie.
The GOP White House hopeful, who never suffers from a shortage in the ego department, immediately mentioned the Hollywood hunk’s name when asked who should be cast in a movie about his life.
“Brad Pitt,” Gingrich told syndicated radio host Rick Stevens late Wednesday.
Although the Republican presidential contest has often resembled a scene from Fight Club, even Gingrich admitted that seeing Pitt isn’t exactly like looking in a mirror
“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,” Gingrich mused, “why not go for Brad Pitt?”
Pitt, an avowed Democrat, has not weighed in on Gingrich’s idea, though it would seem that others – including Philip Seymour Hoffman, the late Leslie Nielsen or Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz – would be better suited to play the presidential candidate.
There are also several Websites devoted to the uncanny resemblance of a young Gingrich to the actor Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight Schrute on the NBC show The Office.
Gingrich’s suggestion of having an A-lister play him on the silver screen is just the latest time that the ex-speaker has compared himself with a luminary.
During this primary season alone, he has drawn parallels between himself and Charles de Gaulle, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.
