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.

I would have guessed the Pillsbury Doughboy would have been a better choice.

I would like to see him in a re-make of "Deliverence", he could squeal like a pig (himself). He even comes from the south.

If Newt thinks that he resembles Brad Pitt in anyway, it makes me fear for his grip on reality!

EXCUSE ME but are there people in the world that would even be interested in watching a movie about Gingrich? What an effing snooze festival. TOO FUNNY. Brad Pitt would never play such a loser anyway.

Newt probably figures he might get a chance to do a little swapping. You know, Angie and Calista.

Well Brad has a better track record with wonen that you do. He may have left Jennifer Aniston under suspicious cir***stances but at least he didn't leave ger while she had cancer.

Is it just me or does it seem that political careers attract sociopathic men like Newt?

Hey Newt, You got my vote for presidency, because you have to be smoking some good pot to think Brad should play you if a movie was ever done about your life. In all honesty Rosanne Barr would be a better choice to play you.
