Bill Clinton on one of his favorite movies, "High Noon": "I bet I've seen it 25 or 30 times"

On Thursday night "Guest Host Week" continued in the "Piers Morgan Tonight" studio, as movie mogul Harvey Weinstein became the most-recent industry icon to keep Piers Morgan's chair warm.

Welcoming former president Bill Clinton for an exclusive interview, the Academy and Tony Award winner turned the topic to cinema, asking his guest about favorite films:

"Well, the first movie I ever saw more than once was 'High Noon,'" recalled Clinton. "I bet I've seen it 25 or 30 times. The only other movie like that in my life that I'd just see over and over and over again and never get tired of is 'Casablanca.'"

Moving to the biopic genre, Weinstein asked the nation's 42nd commander-in-chief about actors he'd select to portray his likeness on the silver screen.

"Brad Pitt? George Clooney?" suggested the host.

"Too good-looking," said Clinton of Pitt.

"George Clooney is at least more my size," he allowed. "He's good-looking, but, you know, you could bulbous things on his nose and you could do makeup with him."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the guest casts a certain well-known female star in the role of his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
