Johnny Depp Stars in Fake Donald Trump Biopic

Johnny Depp Stars in Fake Donald Trump Biopic

The comedians at FunnyOrDie.com have ventured into unchartered territory in creating the first-ever Donald Trump movie.

Complete with an all-star cast and a catchy theme song, “The Art of the Deal” movie is 50 minutes of pure ’80s throwback absurdity.

It’s unclear whether or not Trump has seen the film, which the comedy site released Wednesday, following the business mogul’s success at the GOP primary in New Hampshire Tuesday night.

Folks at the Houston Chronicle say it’s being touted as “The New Film (Not) Based on the #1 National Bestselling Book by Donald Trump.” Trump’s book, also called “The Art of the Deal,” is a best-selling business advice book published in 1987.

“The Art of the Deal” movie features a hardly recognizable Johnny Depp as Trump. Actors Henry Winkler, Merv Griffin, Patton Oswalt, Jacob Tremblay, Andy Richter, Jack McBrayer, Stephen Merchant, Alfred Molina and Michaela Watkins also appear in the film.

FunnyOrDie co-founder Adam McKay produced the film and kept it under wraps prior to its Feb. 10 release. McKay also directed “The Big Short,” the 2015 film up for several Academy Awards, including best picture.

“It was a crazy, completely nuts idea that somehow we pulled off,” McKay told the New York Times about the surprise release.

The film was directed by Jeremy Konner, who produces Comedy Central’s “Drunk History.”

By Wednesday afternoon, “The Art of the Deal” movie had already reached almost a half-million views.
