Johnny Depp Plays Donald Trump In Biopic That's Been Kept Secret For Months

Donald Trump is a gift to comedians the world over. Everyday he says something else to make us scratch our heads and wonder if this is all some sort of cosmic joke being carried out on the American people. From his hair to his implications that he'd date his own daughter, to his war on "political correctness," there is never a dull moment where The Donald is concerned. Now, it seems the tables have turned and the geniuses over at Funny or Die have decided to play their own joke on the bombastic billionaire. [caption id="attachment_125811" align="alignnone" width="675"]11TRUMPMOVIE-web1-master675 (Photo: Funny Or Die)[/caption] They have created a parody based on Trump's best-selling book,  The Art of the Deal,  which stars Johnny Depp as the mogul himself. Oscar nominated director, Adam McKay, directs the 50 minute movie which is streaming for free on Funny or Die. [bctt tweet="Johnny Depp Plays Donald Trump In A Movie That's Been Kept Secret For Months"] McKay, and co-producers Judd Apatow and Will Ferell, began working on the project last year with the expectation of releasing it long before now. “The plan was to move really fast because we thought Trump would go away, as least as a presidential candidate,” says Owen Burke, editor in chief of Funny or Die. “When he bizarrely didn’t go away, we had a little more time. But that meant keeping the secret for longer.” [caption id="attachment_125816" align="alignnone" width="670"]johnny-depp-donald-trump-art-of-the-deal-funnyordie (Photo: Funny Or Die)[/caption] Burke describes Depp's performance as "absolutely bananas" saying that he even brought his own wig and make-up crew to set. The movie is presented as a "lost movie" that Trump wrote, directed and starred in during the 80's with Ron Howard as narrator. Part of the film's imagined backstory is that Trump pulled the film from the air after a football game went into overtime. Absolutely brilliant! Cue the long, slow, clap. Check out Johnny Depp being insanely awesome  on Funny or Die. What do you think? Good for a giggle? Source: Distractify
