The gay actor's new book has become a big hit and he's considering turning sections of it into a biopic - and he wants Bullock on board to play the film's leading lady.
He tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "I can see it as a film or a mini-series, but, because it spans so much time, I would have to take a section of it and make it into a beautiful film.
"Some wonderfully talented, theatrical young buck would play me as a child, but I want to play my father. I'm leaning toward Sandra Bullock right now to play my mother because I'm just enraptured with her. I just admire her so much. She can do it and she has this strength and grace about her, like my mother."
Batt admits he has been more than impressed with the grace and class Bullock has shown since news of her husband Jesse James' infidelities hit the headlines in March (10).
He adds, "I want to applaud her because it's hard not to say anything and just be quiet because it is personal and she's such a private person... She's just so great."
The 46 year old has been openly gay throughout his career, and has been dating partner Tom Cianfichi for two decades.
But Batt is adamant that being openly gay is a tough choice for stars - and he urges more homosexual celebrities to follow former child star Harris' lead and be honest.
He tells The Huffington Post, "God love Neil Patrick Harris. How good is that? People grew up with him, they go, 'Oh it's him, it's that little boy, and he just happens to be gay. How great for him!' The more of those kind of examples that happen, the better it's going to be.
"If you are openly gay, the masses can be asses and sometimes can't get past the fact that that's how someone lives their private life.
"Some actors have to make a choice. If they have the opportunity to become these huge megastars, making millions and millions of dollars and have to live a lie, that's a choice they have to make."
Batt, who plays Salvatore Romano on the hit TV drama, co-owns New Orleans, Louisiana home design and gift store Hazelnut and is a renowned interior designer.
He has crafted the new Hef love seat, inspired by Hefner, and the publisher has agreed to sign a limited run.
Batt says, "It's a love seat in that you can have a glass of wine there with your date and then move on to someplace else."
Batt has become known for his role as art director Salvatore Romano on the 1960s-set drama, which premiered in 2007.
He recently raised his concerns about losing his job after his TV character was fired - and his worst fears have come true.
TV bosses have now confirmed he won't be joining the rest of the cast when the show returns for its fourth season, but insist there is no bad blood between the two parties.
Series creator Matthew Weiner explains, "Losing Bryan was a tough moment for the show, but that's where we are.
"I know how people felt about Bryan. I obviously love working with him, and he has been an indelible character since the pilot. But I felt it was an expression of the times that he couldn't work there anymore."
The gay actor, 46, has been dating Tom Cianfichi, an actor-turned-event planner, for two decades and the couple is now ready to make its union official with a wedding in Vermont, where same sex unions are legal.
A source tells the National Enquirer, "Bryan is at the top of his game professionally, and they've never been happier.
"They're leaning toward a Christmas wedding in Vermont."
Batt and Cianfichi, who own homes in Louisiana, Los Angeles and New York, have begun planning for their wedding, which promises to be an extravagant occasion.
The insider adds, "Bryan and Tom already consider themselves married, and are registered as domestic partners in New Orleans.
"Tom's working on the wedding arrangements, and with their combined style and taste; it's certain to be a big event. They intend to pull out all the stops."
