Marvel Star Transforms into Donald Trump for Upcoming Film ‘The Apprentice’

Get ready, because filmmaking is about to make a bold statement. This time helmed by gifted director Ali Abassi of “Holy Spider” fame, he’s caught the attention of movie-goers with his new project – a Donald Trump biopic.

First Look at ‘The Apprentice’

Our first glimpse into the making of this film has landed, thanks to The New York Post. Marvel actor Sebastian Stan, stepping into the shoes (and hair) of Donald Trump, was spotted in Toronto sporting the iconic and unmissable sandy blond locks of the former president.

Powerful Cast of ‘The Apprentice’

“The Apprentice,” rumored to possibly have had a name change to “The Student,” started production on November 29th. This highly-anticipated 2024 film also stars Maria Bakalova as Ivana Trump and Jeremy Strong portraying the notorious lawyer Roy Cohn.

Speaking of Roy Cohn, he was a man who sported one of the seediest reputations, albeit fascinating. A film about Cohn could have been just as intriguing, if not more. But, that’s a chat for another day.
