Jamie Oliver said he wants Brad Pitt to play him in a movie based on Oliver's life.

The Daily Meal reported last week that a movie loosely based on Jamie Oliver’s life is in the works. Ryan Seacrest is in the lineup to produce the comedy called Food Fight, and comedians Will Ferrell and Seann William Scott are being considered for the main parts. But Jamie Oliver has something else in mind.

"I want Brad Pitt to play me," Oliver told TODAY.com in London. "He’s the only guy I want. It’d be a good job for Brad to get — I think it’d be good for him to get into some serious cooking."

Oliver always dreams big, and he admits, "My sights are set high." But as one of the best, most attractive actors in Hollywood, Pitt is in high demand. According to Oliver, if Pitt is too busy to jump on the Food Fight bandwagon, Matt Damon would be next in line.
