Answering questions on his choice of underwear, what he wears in bed and what he listens to to unwind, Brown also disclosed to New Woman magazine.that his wife Sarah thinks George Clooney would be the ideal actor to play him in a film of his life.
Do our politicians have more on their minds than their respective political briefs? Do they carry out their duties as elected members with one eye on the Walk of Fame? One may certainly be forgiven for thinking so.
Brown's assertion follows hot on the heels of boastful John Prescott's introspective nugget that Marlon Brando would be the ideal man to play him on the big screen.
All of which has spurred furious debate in the office about which star would play which politician in the films of their lives. So The-Latest has decided to cast it.
We want your suggestions for Parliament: The Movie. Ideally, these should be weighted towards MPs currently sitting (or sleeping) in parliament, but if you can build a strong case for the inclusion of actors to play politicians of yesteryear, then we'll include those too.
