Struggling screenwriters across the globe are already on the second or third drafts of their Trump screenplays. Some might focus on the campaign, others a “damsel in distress” narrative about Melania, and others still a raunchy sex comedy about the infamous, elusive “piss tape.” The wisest among them, however, are fine-tuning their scripts to address the ever-growing pile of evidence pointing toward the “collusion” between Trump’s team and the Russian government, the latest of which involves his greasy spawn, Donald Jr.
Anticipation for such a project has already reached Hollywood. Yesterday, Flight Of The Conchords’ Jemaine Clement took to Twitter to begin casting the thing. His twist? Only the industry’s infinitesimal gaggle of Trump supporters are eligible. To start, he offered up perhaps the most talented of Trump’s supporters in loony, one-time Porsche enthusiast James Woods, who he slotted in the role of Marc Kasowitz, Trump’s lawyer. As Don Jr.? Maybe the least talented in Antonio Sabàto Jr. (though, hell, he may be in office himself by then).
From there, he sprinted through a number of inspired choices, envisioning Gary Busey as Eric Trump, Charlie Sheen as Mike Flynn, and Kanye West as Ben Carson. But his most inspired choice, he reserved for the president himself.
Alec won’t like that, will he?
Clement’s followers were quick to get in on the action.
Of course, any film made by Trump supporters would probably end up looking like that Sean Spicer Breitbart interview, so let’s leave this one to the pros.
