Defies comment.

Yet you did...

If Newt wasn't such a narcissistic lying sack of shit I'd almost cut him some slack -- in the course of a radio interview presumably about the campaign, asking who'd play you in a movie is a little off-topic.

But I won't cut him any slack -- off-topic or not, Newt and his ilk are always drinking their culture war whine about "librul Hollywood," yet he can't even cite any noted conservative actors when pressed? Offhand, I immediately thought of Kelsey Grammer and Clint Eastwood, the deceased actors Ron Silver and Charles Bronson...John Milieus is a writer/director, but he and Newt both tip the scales on the, ahem, portly side...

Somewhere I saw that in his younger days, Gingrich bore more than a passing resemblence to the character Dwight on the US version of The Office.

I'm sure there are others. Hell, the guy who played Joe Isuzu on the TV ads is smarmy enough, at least in character, and might well be looking for some work.

More seriously, I think Newt's choice of actor here is a tell -- he likes to come across as scholarly, but get hom out of his comfort zone with a curveball, and he misses badly.

Sort of like with his choice of cellphone ringtone.

Patton Oswalt!!!

nah. has to be more mean. +..supercilious
