Johnny Depp Stars As Donald Trump In Funny Or Die Spoof

Donald Trump's first place finish among the GOP candidates in the New Hampshire primaries was greeted by a mock online documentary of the brash businessman starring a furiously wigged Johnny Depp.

"Funny or Die Presents Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie" was released Tuesday on the Funny or Die site with Ron Howard narrating, music by Kenny Loggins and co-starring Jack McBrayer, Patton Oswalt, Stephen Merchant, Alfred Molina, Henry Winkler and Andy Richter.

The 50-minute film takes its name from Trump's 1987 best-selling advice book and pretends to be a TV special that Trump petulantly tossed away when it got pre-empted by a football game.

The film, grainy and faded, portrays Trump as a megalomaniac and a buffoon. It was written by Joe Randazzo, a former editor of The Onion, while Jeremy Konner, a creator of the television series "Drunk History," directed the spoof.

It was produced -and kept a secret - by Adam McKay, a co-founder of Funny or Die, which also counts Will Ferrell and Judd Apatow as principal partners.

"Successful people are always on the phone - even if there's no one on the other end," the fake Trump lectures a boy in one scene.
