Watch Johnny Depp as Donald Trump in FunnyOrDie Film ‘Art of the Deal’

FunnyOrDie, striking while the iron is hot after Donald Trump’s Republican presidential primary victory in New Hampshire, has released a 1980s-throwback movie starring Johnny Depp as the mogul-turned-politico.

The 50-minute “The Art of the Deal” film — which FOD says is “The New Film (Not) Based on the #1 National Bestselling Book by Donald Trump” — is directed by Jeremy Konner (“Drunk History”) and written by Joe Randazzo (The Onion, “@midnight”). The movie includes an intro from director Ron Howard.

The movie also stars Patton Oswalt as Merv Griffin, Jack McBrayer as Der Scutt (Trump’s architect), Alfred Molina as Jerry Schrager, Henry Winkler as New York City Mayor Ed Koch, Michaela Watkins as Ivana Trump and Jacob Tremblay (“Room”), as well as Andy Richter, Stephen Merchant and iconic ’80s stars like ALF (as himself). Country crooner Kenny Loggins, of course, sings “The Art of the Deal” theme song.

The faux backstory: In 1988, Trump wrote, directed and starred in a made-for-TV movie based on his (real) bestselling book “The Art of the Deal.” But the film never aired because, as legend has it, his movie was preempted by a Monday Night Football game and Trump furiously refused to release it.
