Newt Gingrich was talking on a radio show on Monday when he was asked by the radio show host who he would most like to play him should a movie about his life ever be told, the GOP presidential hopefuls answer? Brad Pitt.
Gingrinch responded quickly to the question with:
“Brad Pitt … why not?”
At least in the modesty department Gingrich was able to admit that they look nothing alike:
“He’s thinner, he’s better looking, he’s younger. But … why not go for Brad Pitt? You gotta relax and just, you know, let your imagination soar.”
It’s funny because the moment I thought about who would play Newt Gingrich I thought Andy Richter would be my number one guess and after looking around the web it turns out quite a few other writers gave the same answer. Perhaps Conan O’Brien could play Mitt Romney. In the meantime I’m not sure if that thought is mean to Gingrich or Richter.
I’m sure at this point with Mitt Romney soaring ahead in the polls and winning Florida that Newt Gingrich would even be willing to settle for Brad Pitt’s endorsement.
Are you surprised by Newt Gingrich’s answer?
Here’s a shot of a younger Andy Richter (they have almost the same haircut but parted opposite one another):
