Watch Funny Or Die’s TRUMP: THE ART OF THE DEAL “lost” film starring Johnny Depp as Donald Trump


This is a bit unexpected, but nonetheless awesome. The folks at Funny Or Die unveiled a long lost biopic THE ART OF THE DEAL, based on Donald Trump’s bestselling book by the same name. Of course this is fake, but really well done, and the killer part is none other than Johnny Depp is playing Donald Trump. The 50-minute mini-movie is the brainchild of FOD editor Owen Burke, and the supporting cast includes Patton Oswalt, Alfred Molina, Henry Winkler, Andy Richter, Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), Jacob Tremblay (ROOM), and Michaela Watkins, plus director Ron Howard introduces the whole thing in a very serious and sincere way as if it was legitimately a long lost treasure. Even the back story they give is pretty plausible, to an extent. What’s most amazing is that they kept the whole project secret since December, where Depp reportedly shot his scenes in four days. The make-up is actually rather impressive, and you can tell Depp took on the goofy role with a lot of passion. The timing of this couldn’t be better either with Trump all over the news thanks to election season. If you have the time to watch the whole thing, you’re definitely going to get a chuckle or two. The 1980’s style is captured beautifully too, both the look of the video and even the killer intro music and credits. Tell us what you think in the comments below.
