Trump Movie With Gossip Girl Star Revealed

According to Deadline, former President Donald Trump will be portrayed by Sebastian Stan, known for his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in an upcoming film titled “The Apprentice.” The movie is written by Gabriel Sherman, a longtime critic of Fox News, who has also reported extensively on Trump.



Sebastian Stan, recognized for his performances in MCU and the Hulu miniseries “Pam & Tommy,” will take on the role of a young Donald Trump. The film, directed by Cannes prize-winning Iranian filmmaker Ali Abbasi, will explore Trump’s efforts to build his real estate business in New York during the ’70s and ’80s. The narrative will delve into Trump’s relationship with the infamous attorney Roy Cohn, known for his association with Senator Joseph McCarthy during the Red Scare.

The film, described as an examination of power, ambition, corruption, and deceit, began production recently. Alongside Stan, the cast includes Jeremy Strong, Emmy and Golden Globe winner for “Succession,” and Maria Bakalova, an Oscar nominee known for her role in “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.”

“The Apprentice” is expected to provide insights into Trump’s early career and personal connections, shedding light on key moments in his business endeavors and the influence of individuals such as Roy Cohn. The film’s premise aligns with Sherman’s history of critical reporting on Trump, and it is anticipated that the portrayal may not be flattering, considering the writer’s perspective.
