Sebastian Stan is reportedly set to portray a younger version of Donald Trump in a film about the former president’s New York real estate business in the 1980s and 1990s.
“Succession” star Jeremy Strong will play Trump’s infamous early mentor Roy Cohn, and Maria Bakalova — of “Borat 2” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” fame — will play Trump’s first wife, the late Ivana Trump, Deadline and Variety reported Wednesday.
The movie will be directed by Ali Abbasi, who has directed multiple episodes of the HBO hit “The Last of Us.”
The title of the film is unclear. Deadline identified it as “The Apprentice,” the same name as Trump’s NBC reality business show. Variety referred to it as “The Student.”
Stan has played Bucky Barnes, aka the Winter Soldier, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2011. He also transformed himself into Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee for Hulu’s “Pam & Tommy” miniseries.
Bakalova, for her part, stole the show in the 2020 “Borat” sequel over that scene with former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.
