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.

Good grief, the question was asked OF HIM. He didn't initiate it for crying out loud. He already said what everyone else has, too, that Brad is better looking, thinner, etc. I bet if this question was asked of Obama and he said Denzel Washington should play him then people would be slobbering all over the concept. I am glad to see Newt has a sense of humor about it...don't want him as Prez but at least he can have fun in an interview. People take things so seriously, lighten up.

Newt is SO clever. He's hard to match wits with. A great debator. I'm not some huge fan, but I think he's the most clever candidate we've seen in either party in many years.

Newt is a real don quixote with his singing court jester H. Cain will establish a new colony or a state called the Moon. As Ron Paul said these two clowns should be sent to the moon immediately with one way tickets.

It's amazing how all of you idiots don't read. He says He doesn't look like Brad Pitt but would choose him if he had a choice. Why not choose someone better looking than you. Christ. Bunch of idiotic liberals that can't see a guy joking when it's right there in fornt of you.

I bet Brad Pitt is getting a good laugh out of this..Newt is everything that Pitt is against..in other words bet there isn't enough money in this world that would make Pitt take the part of that fat a$$ hole.
