Actor Brendan Gleeson set to portray Donald Trump

30 posts in this topic

This will likely be a tv movie, not certain yet & only saw it yesterday but the terrific Irish actor Brendan Gleeson may play the president Donald Trump  soon.

He's a lot bigger than Trump, but I could see it, look at *Crowe as Roger Ailes  & Gleeson has been in many films Gangs of New York, the General, In Bruge-(misspelled) & a lot more

Alec Baldwin wasn't available? :P

The promos for Comedy Central's roast has been making fun of Baldwin's recent career-stall:
"Hey, I was in 'Hunt For Red October' and 'Glengarry Glenn Ross'!"
"Really?  You played Trump in those, too?"  😛

But yes, I assumed it would have to be TV/Cable, since the one pro-Trump movie we got tanked in theaters ("Death of a Nation"), and the one anti-Trump movie we got tanked in theaters ("Fahrenheit 11/9").  Maybe we just, y'know, don't want to see him on screen at ALL, and just pretend the last three years never happened?

Brendan Gleeson is quite good at playing lunatics.

Brendan Gleeson looks like an Obi-Wan Kenobi in some Star Wars story.

This is how Tom Hanks would look if he put on those 50 pounds. :P

How about just a plain look at the guy instead of emotionally charged propaganda for either side?

I posted about this movie a few days ago in the Off Topics. It's going to be a TV mini-series based on James Comey's book. Comey is the main character, and will be played by Jeff Daniels.

A 'plain look at the guy' would likely be viewed as charged propaganda by either side.

Hey,  I like the idea,  but my gut tells me that most people wouldn't since most are emotionally charged-up when it comes to this guy.

I think he was referring to Eric J's comment about the movies already made about Trump.

Man, nobody ever gets me nothin'.

I wasn't sure, as the sentiment could apply to more than a few in the thread. And I actually did break one of my own rules by posting here earlier.

I decided to stay out of Off-Topics after venturing in a while back and I wish some comments and topics would remain there, not here (not you.)

A 'plain look" would be very boring compared to the real thing we see every day.

If you get it, go to the doctor and get rid of it.

How about watching him clown around in his own fantasy world on a "reality" show for nine years?  Think we still got a good idea from that.

Have a feeling this thread will eventually wind up there.

  Today he abandoned a group of people, the Kurds, who helped us defeat Isis. Who knows what's next !  Alaska take note... he might sell you back to the Russians.
