As TMZ reported that if there were to be a movie based on Newt's life that he would want Brad Pitt to play him.
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???"
OK, so even Newt agreed it was a crazy idea... now about the moon...
