Johnny Depp Is Spot-On as Donald Trump in Cheeky Funny or Die 'Biopic': See the Clip!
The faux film is a 1980s-set 50-minute romp that jumps off the mogul's best-selling book of the same name – but with a twist.
Johnny Depp wins the popular vote for this one.
The actor slips into his best Donald Trump mode for a hilarious Funny or Die spoof, impersonating the presidential hopeful in a cheeky biopic that features a slew of star-studded appearances.
The faux film, titled The Art of the Deal: The Movie, is a 1980s-set 50-minute romp that jumps off the mogul’s best-selling book of the same name – but with a twist.
“Thought to be lost in the Cybill Shepherd blouse fire of ’89, The Art of the Deal is a TV movie based on the best-selling Donald Trump autobiography of the same name,” the film’s narrator, none other than Ron Howard, says before revealing that Trump himself – aka Depp in full bouffant form – wrote, directed and starred in it himself.
And he’s got ample backup: The film also features cameos by Alfred Molina, Patton Oswalt, Jack McBrayer and Andy Richter, among others.
“It was a crazy, completely nuts idea that somehow we pulled off,” Funny or Die cofounder Adam McKay told The New York Times about the spoof.
