Eddie Izzard's looking to become the next big transvestite on the political scene. Take that, J. Edgar Hoover!

"The Riches" actor, 46, told Newsweek he wants to get into European politics, and said, "I think the stakes are if we don't make the European Union work, then the world is screwed. End of story."

Izzard to save the world? In heels as well! Kinda looks like Angela Merkel, doesn't he?
