Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America, has a unique personality to say the least. Hollywood has been known to produce movies of famous people who are exemplary in their deeds — good or bad. And Donald Trump is a person who certainly has done more than enough to be a fascinating subject for a film. Love him, hate him, but you definitely can’t ignore him. I am sure that several Hollywood filmmakers might already have started thinking in this direction, but here are our picks of who should play Donald Trump.
12. Jeff Goldblum
Jeff Goldblum doesn’t fit the Donald Trump’s persona at all. But then even Trump doesn’t seem to fit in U.S President’s shoes in any which way. So, why not Goldblum. Why not try someone who is willing and is exactly the opposite of what it should be. Isn’t the mere thought very exciting! Imagine the transformation. It would either be a huge dud or a role for the ages. Also, Jeff has shown a keen interest in the portrayal. Hence, the consideration is legit.
11. Christoph Waltz
Waltz has done everything as a villain. He has been a Bond Villain, a Jew killing machine, a dictator and a role on the lines of Godfather. He understands the eccentricity of such characters. And has had a flair in dealing with it. Also, Waltz is very fluent with dictions and speeches which gives the required authenticity to the character. And since, he is a German, he can attempt to play the role more objectively than others on the list.
10. Jon Voight
Voight is special. He is indeed very special. And no it is not because of his Oscar. But for the reason that he is one of the very few who has been supporting Trump’s presidency. Donald Trump had some very mean words for his daughter Angelina Jolie but that didn’t make him change his stance. He finds Trump original, honest and colourful and thinks he is the right fit. I wonder if he thinks presidency is similar to a T.V series. Hence, if some day someone totally goes out of his mind and attempts to show Trump in an earnest way, Voight would be the right choice. Also, he is only a little older. And he resembles to Trump in many ways, so he would need the least amount of makeup.
9. Leonardo DiCaprio
