Sebastian Stan was spotted filming a scene as a young Trump wearing a long black coat on a park bench.
Sebastian Stan looked exactly like a young Donald Trump while filming his upcoming movie The Apprentice. He wore a long black coat, tie, and a blonde wig.
The I, Tonya actor is sharing the screen with actor Jeremy Strong, who is portraying the real-life attorney Roy Cohn, and actress Maria Bakalova, who plays Donald’s first wife, Ivana Trump.
The film is set in a world of corruption and deceit, exploring the disgraced politician’s career in building his real estate empire in New York City throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
The movie will also delve into Donald’s relationship with his attorney, Roy, as a mentor-protege story that charts the origins of a major American dynasty.
The screenwriter for the project is Gabriel Sherman, known for the Russell Crowe-led series The Loudest Voice about Fox News founder Roger Ailes and his mistreatment of female employees.
Sebastian Stan previously portrayed Tommy Lee in the miniseries Pam & Tommy, as well as playing the Winter Soldier in several Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
Production on the upcoming flick comes amid Donald’s ongoing legal disputes regarding his former presidency from 2016 through 2020.
The former host of The Apprentice has not publicly commented on the movie, and the film’s release date has not been confirmed yet.
In 2015, Donald was fired from NBC after making racist comments about Mexican immigrants, leading to the network ending its business relationship with him.
