Ich hab’ mir das Meisterwerk noch nicht komplett angesehen, aber bei Johnny Depp als Trump in einem 40minütigen Fake-Biopic von Funny Or Die kann man wohl nicht allzuviel falsch machen.
Von der New York Times:
“The Art of the Deal,” which takes its title from Mr. Trump’s 1987 best-selling business advice book, may establish a new Hollywood genre: the fake television movie of the week. As a narrator (the director Ron Howard, playing himself) tells viewers at its start, the movie was made in the 1980s and had Mr. Trump as its writer-producer-director-star. But a football game went into overtime, and so an angry Mr. Trump ordered the prime-time special pulled and forever tucked away in a vault.
Mr. Howard supposedly discovered this Hollywood relic. Mr. McKay, speaking by phone and keeping up the joke, said that his site “views this movie as an important historical document that has been hidden away, much like Jerry Lewis’s Holocaust clown movie.” (“The Day the Clown Cried,” a 1972 film written, directed and starring Mr. Lewis as a clown being held in a concentration camp, was never released.)
Mr. Depp, who was not available for an interview, spent four days in early December taping the faux movie. Other characters are played by Jack McBrayer, Patton Oswalt, Alfred Molina, Henry Winkler, Andy Richter and Jacob Tremblay, among others. Michaela Watkins, known for her work on “Saturday Night Live” and the Fox sitcom “New Girl,” was cast as Ivana Trump.
