Watch Johnny Depp Kill It As ‘The Donald’ In Funny Or Die’s Secret Donald Trump Movie

In a bit fortuitous timing Funny or Die just released a secret movie based on Donald Trump’s book The Art of the Deal. Fresh off his win in New Hampshire, The Donald has never looked better in this movie. Perhaps that’s because he’s played by none other than Johnny Depp. No, seriously. Johnny Depp.

According to Funny or Die, here’s what prompted the soon-to-be-classic film…

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.

That’s right, Patton Oswalt as Merv Griffin and Henry Winkler as Mayor Ed Koch. What else do you need to know?

Take a look at these pics and tell me this isn’t Oscar-worthy material…

And here’s the epic trailer…
