Johnny Depp Stars in Funny or Die’s Donald Trump Biopic, Tragically Too Late for Oscar Season

Mordecai. The Wolf from Into the Woods. That little weird French-Canadian detective from Kevin Smith’s Tusk. Johnny Depp has made a career out of transformation, and he’s done it again in Funny or Die’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie. According to director Ron Howard, the 50-minute film adaptation of Trump’s 1987 memoir/business-advice book, directed by Drunk History’s Jeremy Konner and written by @midnight’s Joe Randazzo, was found at a yard sale outside Phoenix. Then again, Ron Howard is a notorious liar. Depp stars alongside Alfred Molina, Patton Oswalt, Henry Winkler, and Kristen Schaal, with Michaela Watkins as Ivana Trump. You can watch the entire film here to see Depp’s miraculous mutation, and you can be goddamn sure when Donald Trump wins the presidency, his first point of order will be getting Johnny Depp an Oscar, which will then be made out of pure brass.
