Funny or Die 'Donald Trump' filmmakers on making the viral parody starring Johnny Depp

Los Angeles: Donald Trump's first place finish among the Republican Party candidates in New Hampshire primaries was actually greeted by a mock online documentary of Trump starring a wigged Johnny Depp.

On Tuesday, "Funny or Die Presents Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie" was released with Ron Howard narrating, music by Kenny Loggins and co-starring Jack McBrayer, Henry Winkler, Andy Richter, Patton Oswalt, Stephen Merchant and Alfred Molina.

The film portrays Trump as a buffoon and megalomaniac. It was written by Joe Randazzo, a former editor of The Onion, while Jeremy Konner, a creator of the television series "Drunk History," directed the spoof.

The 50-minute film takes its name from Trump's 1987 best-selling advice book and pretends to be a TV special that Trump pettishly tossed away when it got pre-empted by a football game.
