Newt Gingrich is adamant ... Brad Pitt should play HIM if Hollywood ever made a movie about his life ... and no, that's not a typo.

The Republican candidate phoned in to the Rich Stevens Radio Show today ... 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 quipped, "Is it because you guys look alike?"

Newt fired right back. "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???"

We called Pitt's people for comment -- so far, no word back.

Only Tom Arnold should be allowed to play Newt Gingrich in any theatrical production.

Brad would have to gain 300 pounds and rub bacon fat all over his blubbery body to smell like Newt.

"Hollywood Fantasy" is right. He is a Republican (i.e., he'll be caught soon with a guy at a sleazy motel. . .oops!). He probably fantasizes about Brad Pitt often.

Brian Dennehy would suffice. Brian Dennehy would probably pass though, he hates EYE OF THE TIGER.

Aren't most Republicans closet homo's??? They rail on about family values and are very anti gay yet they get caught in sleazy low life places with other men. Doesn't surprise me he has "fantasies" about other men.

His first choice was "The Blob" but apparently he retired last year.

Nah, I'm thinking maybe Benny Hill, coach Wade Phillips or the grey-haired Lego guy. Seriously, check it out.
