Sebastian Stan is back at it, and this time he’s swapping his Winter Soldier vibes for some signature Trumpian flair. The man of many roles is set to take on the infamous Donald Trump in the uproarious upcoming film, “The Apprentice.”
Picture this: Sebastian, at the ripe age of 41, is dusting off his wig collection and diving headfirst into the world of ’70s and ’80s New York, ready to showcase Trump’s valiant efforts to turn real estate into a spectacle only rivaled by a three-ring circus. And hey, what’s a Trump tale without a dash of Roy Cohn, the attorney extraordinaire? We’re talking business, big hair, and probably a few too many “You’re fired!” moments.
Now, hold your laughter – or don’t, because this is comedy gold – as Iranian filmmaker Ali Abbasi takes the director’s chair, armed with a script that’s bound to make you chuckle. Filming kicked off this week, so prepare yourself for a rollercoaster of side-splitting antics and questionable hair choices.
Joining our leading man on this hilarious escapade are Jeremy Strong as the legendary Roy Cohn and Maria Bakalova stepping into the shoes (and maybe a killer hairstyle) of Trump’s first wife, Ivana. It’s a cast so good, it’s almost as if they’ve been plucked straight from a comedy improv dream.
And let’s not forget, that Sebastian Stan isn’t new to the transformation game. Just last year, he rocked our screens as Tommy Lee in “Pam & Tommy,” earning himself nods and winks from award ceremonies far and wide. Now, he’s trading drumsticks for a business empire and making us wonder if “The Apprentice” might just be the funniest film since, well, the last election cycle.
So buckle up, comedy enthusiasts! “The Apprentice” is on its way, promising laughs, quizzical eyebrow raises, and maybe – just maybe – a peek behind the curtain of one of the most flamboyant eras in New York history.
