Johnny Depp takes lead role in spoof Donald Trump biopic

'The Art Of The Deal' also features Stephen Merchant and Patton Oswalt

Johnny Depp plays Donald Trump in a feature-length biopic on the billionaire turned would-be-US President.

The spoof film is named The Art Of The Deal after Trump’s 1987 book of the same name and sees Depp take on the lead role as the US Presidential candidate. Filmed in December last year, the film was edited in time to be released in time for this week’s primary in New Hampshire, which Trump won.

The Funny Or Die film also stars Alfred Molina, Patton Oswalt, Michaela Watkins (as Trump’s ex-wife Ivanna), Henry Winkler, Stephen Merchant, Kristen Schaal, Paul Scheer, and is narrated by Ron Howard. The film’s theme is by Kenny Loggins and directed by Jeremy Konner.

Funny or Die co-founder Adam McKay told the New York Times that “with any luck” the film will annoy the real-life Trump.

A synopsis for the film can be seen below. The full 50 minute feature is available from Funny Or Die.

“Donald Trump has it all. Money, power, respect, and an Eastern European bride. But all his 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 you can learn the art of negotiation, real estate, and high-quality brass in this illuminating made-for-TV special feature, Funny Or Die Presents Donald Trump’s The Art Of The Deal: The Movie.”
