The comedy gods decided to leave us a present this morning in the guise of a Donald Trump bio pic starring Academy Award-nominee Johnny Depp. From Captain Jack Sparrow to Whitey Bluger, Depp is no stranger to playing awful, despicable people. And, like in his previous movies, the actor is pretty great in this. But what makes Donald Trump’s The Art Of The Deal: The Movie extraordinary is that the gang over at Funny or Die pulled a Louie C.K./Beyoncé and wrote, shot, and edited the project without much of a peep. Then, this morning: TA-DA!
Donald Trump’s The Art Of The Deal: The Movie follows the man who has it all: Money, power, respect, and an Eastern European bride. But all of Trump’s success didn’t come for nothing. First, he inherited millions of dollars from his rich father, then he grabbed New York City by the balls. Now, we all can learn the art of negotiation, real estate, and high-quality brass in this illuminating made-for-TV special feature that was written, directed, and stars Trump himself.
With appearances by Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard, Academy Award-nominee Alfred Molina, Mad Men‘s Robert Morse, Patton Oswalt, Jack McBrayer, Michaela Watkins, Henry Winkler, Stephen Merchant, Christopher Lloyd, Room‘s Jacob Tremblay, and the only illegal alien the billionaire has ever cared for, TV megastar Alf.
