Johnny Depp as Donald Trump video reveals disdain of future media attacks

From Jack Sparrow to Ed Wood, Johnny Depp has taken on some pretty interesting and entertaining roles and now puts on the strange hair to become Donald Trump in a new full-length parody movie released by Funny Or DieDonald Trump’s The Art of The Deal: The Movie.

The profanity-ladened spoof purports to be a “lost” made-for-television film written, directed by and starring Trump as himself in the mid-1980s, framed around the title and structure of Trump’s (real) autobiography of the same title.

An introduction from Ron Howard explains that Trump supposedly removed the film from circulation out of spite because its original airing was preempted by Monday Night Football, and was presumed lost in a “Cybil Shephard Blouse Fire” of 1989. Now the film turned up at a garage sale and Howard says he had to wrestle away from a woman.

Depp dons Trump’s signature bizarre hairstyle to play the real-estate mogul while also pointed references to controversies dogging the real Trump’s present day political campaign. Other big stars join in with the joke, including Alfred Molina, Jack McBrayer, Kristen Schaal, Andy Richter with Patton Oswalt, Henry Winkler and Michaela Watkins in particular stand out as Merv Griffin, Ed Koch and Ivana Trump, respectively.

Trump has managed to go mostly unscathed through the 2016 political race, but the parody film reveals the plethora of material that the media can and will bring up to bring Trump down as the campaign continues.
