That's awesome of Pitt to do this, given that a week or so back he said he wanted Brad to play him mr_lebowski Apr 2020 #11

And you just KNOW that it burns Trump's ass to have Fauci even further glamorized. CTyankee Apr 2020 #16
Yes! The more that dump can be burned, the better! erronis Apr 2020 #22

I just knew that it wasn't a regular cast member. I just hope that the good doctor was watching.

Someone asked him who he'd like to see play him in "the movie" and somehow it turns out it was Brat Pitt. So this was such a cool thing to do.

on a late night show might have asked him and they may have goaded him a bit but I kind of recall that. I think it has some truth to it now that I see Brad Pitt playing Dr. Fauci...



I'm not taking responsibility for anything.

on the New Day show last week. It was one of her last questions to him that day. Who would you like to play you in a movie?
She gave two choices and one was Brad Pitt. And he laughed and said Brad Pitt without missing a beat.

Not saying Fauci was full of himself. He probably thought it would advance his thinking further, altho it really is preaching to the choir at this point...

Earlier in April, CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota asked Fauci which star he would rather portray him if he were impersonated on "Saturday Night Live" — Brad Pitt or Ben Stiller.

"Brad Pitt, of course," Fauci said, laughing.

And I'm really glad they put this together. Dr. Fauci is now the rock star of the pandemic, of all things to be the celebrity for, and he does deserve all the positive recognition he receives.

I am imagining Dr. Fauci watching this.

I hope he was watching and laughing, rather than having nightmares about the idiot.

And I hope he was flattered, he's one of the heroes to come out of this huge mess.

I cannot even imagine what that brilliant man goes through. I can't even stand to look at dump or hear his voice. He surely is a hero.

Not just cause I still have a big crush on Brad Pitt. This got more good information out there in three minutes than Dumpy has in years of our lives we'll never get back.
Also, did I say this was DELIGHTFUL?
Thanks for posting, Rhiannon!

Even in their remote broadcasts, they're doing relevant/great work! And funny, too!
