Brad Pitt perfect for U2 film role

Monday, Mar 2, 2009

Irish rockers U2 want Brad Pitt to star in a movie about their lives. The band’s guitarist The Edge thinks the Hollywood hunk would be the perfect person to portray him if a film about the group was ever made. He said: “We’d want it to be realistic, we don’t want the usual things, so Brad Pitt would play me.” Bono thinks only an Oscar winner could do him justice on the big screen. He joked to British radio presenter Christian O’Connell from Absolute Radio: “Yes, I would say. Who’s another tall, skinny Irishman? Daniel Day Lewis would play me.”
