Newt wants Brad to play him on the big screen. Guess the film's title will be Newt's Delusion.
In an interview with a Florida radio station, just before his defeat by Romney in the primary, Gingrich confessed that, if a movie was ever made about his life, he saw Brad Pitt in the role.
Speaking to the Rich Stevens Radio Show on Ft Lauderdale, Florida station 850 WFTL, Gingrich admitted there might be one or two minor problems – "he's thinner, he's better looking, he's younger" – but that would be no artistic obstacle. "If you're going to go for it, you gotta relax and let your imagination soar."
In fact, Gingrich, 68, is two decades older than the 48-year-old Pitt, and the two appear to have almost nothing in common. Pennsylvania-born Gingrich has been a career politician since running for Congress in 1974 as a Republican; Pitt, born in Oklahoma but raised in Missouri, has regularly topped world's sexiest man polls and is a noted Hollywood liberal.
I'm surprised Newt didn't say Denzel in order to pander to the black Goopers who convene in a phone booth at CPAC...
