Grapevine: Brad Pitt as Newt Gingrich?

Candidate's pick for actor who would play him in a movie


And now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...

Rocky Rhode

A Rhode Island pro-life group says its right to life rally at the state capitol last week was disrupted by Occupy Wall Street protesters.

The group's director says the event was cut short after occupiers threw condoms at Catholic school girls, refused to allow a priest to give a closing prayer, and shouted down a speaker.

Quote -- "What kind of individual throws condoms at Catholic school girls? This is their idea of civil speech but we believe it's an outrage."

We reached out to Occupy Providence but have not heard back.

Thanks for Knocking

A Massachusetts woman says FBI agents used a chain saw blade to cut through her door and held her at gunpoint for at least 30 minutes before realizing they had the wrong house.

The mother says while agents held her down her three year old daughter cried in another room.

The FBI has apologized and is paying for the damage.

It says agents were after a suspected drug dealer in the same multi-unit building.

Dream Big

Finally, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich had no trouble choosing his ideal actor for a possible movie about him.


HOST: If Hollywood was gonna do a movie about your life, who would you like to see play the lead role?


HOST: So I can see the movie trailer now. Brad Pitt as Newt Gingrich.

GINGRICH: Yes, why not go for it, ya know?

HOST: Is it because you both look so much alike?

GINGRICH: No, I don't look like him at all. He's thinner, he's better looking, he's younger. But you asked me if anyone could play me in a movie, why not go for Brad Pitt? Look, if you're gonna go for it, you gotta relax and just, ya know, let your imagination soar.


No reaction from Brad Pitt's camp about the role.
