Who will play Mueller in the movie? Who could possibly be a believable Trump?

There will be a movie about Russiagate at some point in the not too distant future. Who would be good to play Mueller?

My vote goes to (drum roll)...George Clooney. I think he'd be great in it.

An actor to play Trump stumps me. Tall, overweight, old, the hair, loudmouth, vulgar, molesting women, a liar, a braggard, mental issues. Jeff Bridges, maybe...but he's too likable, I think.

Clooney has more star power.

Depends on who the stars are, besides Trump.

Sessions will be a big role. The Trump family. Comey.

My theory is that the movie was written just for this actor's clean-cut image coming through the character. Otherwise, they would have had to make the movie at least an hour longer to show the viewer that the character was really a nice guy who killed people for a living...

But if you notice, he usually doesn't play against a totally different physical type...except weight.

But yeah...he would kill it, for sure. He can do anything. I've seen him in a couple of movies where he plays ordinary men...one is as a father of some grownup kids. He even plays ordinary very well! He reminded me of my dad!

75. Yep I agree with DeNiro for sure!

He would be perfect for this role and there are a lot of ways to get around the height. Besides most actors are shorter in real life compared to how they appear on film. Plus he already has the perfect experience with previous mobster roles and also from when he played Bernie Madoff. DeNiro would be a perfect Trump.

He's too young to play him in a movie, though. But he was my first thought. And I don't think a heavyweight enough actor, if Mueller plays a key character in the movie, which I think he would.

But wow...they must be related somehow. It's uncanny!

72. I thought about Redford. But he's too likable, I think.

Redford isn't believable as a bad guy. But he's got the same coloring and is in the right age range.

Mueller is American and is dark with dark eyes. But they are both tall.

125. He played Col. "Hannibal" Smith in the movie version of the A-Team

with an "American" accent (doing his best George Peppard ) -



100% of actors wear makeup (and many wear contacts) to play their parts.

This guy (John Boyega) is British too but you wouldn't know it -



Brits can do better (generic) "American" accents than Americans can do British (whatever dialect) accents

78. Johnny Depp already did trump in Art of the Deal . Before he became president and trump was trump

Last edited Thu Jan 25, 2018, 07:47 PM - Edit history (1)


For all the incredible effort and production value that have gone into this film, Depp’s performance—both committed and nimble when it comes to leaning into the jokes—may be the biggest highlight. Black Mass Oscar nomination or not, are we entering a new golden age of Depp? His next role, playing the Invisible Man in Universal’s ongoing attempt to build a franchise out of their classic monsters, doesn’t provide conclusive evidence either way. But if a real Trump biopic ever gets made—and, Lord help us, that might be inevitable—Depp ought to be the first one they call.

Catch it on Netflix I know it's there probably other stresmd

90. I suppose Clooney is a little too young. I never thought Clooney was that good looking...

but I suppose most people would think so. I was thinking of his olive skin, brown eyes, acting chops, and his box office draw. He's one of the most successful actors we have these days.

Harrison Ford for Mueller? Maybe. Just personally, I've never cared much for his acting. But he does have box office draw and is the right age. And he's not a bad actor. Believable as a super smart high powered attorney? Not sure about that. Has he ever played an evil character?

Lewis would only do it if it's a big production....either in Hollywood or for streaming. He wouldn't do a made-for-tv movie, probably. Or would he? But he announced recently he's retiring.

I don't think Donofrio is a big enough star for Trump. He could be one of the other many characters, tho.

119. One thing I know: if this is an "A" production, many of the biggest male stars will be trying..

will be trying to get the plum parts.

If it's a "B" made-for-tv movie, there will still be loads of actors lining up to try and get parts. But not the movie stars of Hollywood. Unless it's HBO.

It could be a streaming movie. Netflix or Amazon or HBO.
