Johnny Depp —ever the character chameleon channeled his inner Donald Trump for the *alleged* scrapped movie, The Art Of The Deal. The 80’s made for movie made it’s *debut* hours after Trump won New Hampshire primary for the GOP. It was reportedly written, directed and stars Trump. It’s 50 minutes ya’ll!
In 1988 Donald Trump wrote, directed, and starred in a made-for-TV movie based on his bestselling book ‘The Art of the Deal.’ When the film was bumped because Monday Night Football ran long, the furious Trump pulled the movie, obscuring it from the general public for decades. Now Funny Or Die has unearthed this delightfully dated masterpiece for the world to see.
The movie stars Johnny Depp as Donald Trump, Patton Oswalt as Merv Griffin, Henry Winkler as Mayor Ed Koch, Michaela Watkins as Ivana Trump, and also features Alfred Molina, Andy Richter, Jack McBrayer, Robert Morse, Jacob Tremblay, Ron Funches, Stephen Merchant, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Jason Mantzoukas, Kristen Schaal, and ALF. Kenny Loggins, ’80s soundtrack virtuoso, performs the film’s original theme song. The movie was directed by Jeremy Konner (Drunk History) and written by Joe Randazzo (The Onion, @midnight), with an intro from Ron Howard.
