Simon Cowell's Pitt wish

Simon Cowell wants Brad Pitt to play him in a film of his life.

The music mogul - who judges hit talent shows 'American Idol', 'Britain's Got Talent' and 'The X Factor' - thinks the Hollywood heartthrob would be the perfect choice for the role.

He said: "I'd want Brad Pitt to play me if someone made a movie about my life. It's believable!"

Simon also revealed details of the movie about Paul Potts, the first winner of British TV show 'Britain's Got Talent'.

He said: "Paramount Studios wants to do it, so they're making a movie."

However, Simon, 48, has ruled out making a cameo appearance in the film, adding to US TV show 'Extra': "I don't think so. I haven't thought about that!"

The British-born star isn't worried about the falling ratings of his talent show 'American Idol' which has unearthed a host of singing successes, including Kelly Clarkson, Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson and Carrie Underwood.

He added: "I think it's fixable. I think everyone took themselves a bit too seriously last year."
