    Let’s pretend HBO had a new hit TV series much like Veep, but it’s about Donald Trump as a U.S. presidential candidate. Who would you cast in the lead and supporting parts? What would the story lines be? What would its tone be? Give us YOUR vision of such a series if it was done RIGHT.

    Would it win any Emmys?

    Gary Busey as Trump. Hugely farcical in nature. Hilarity ensues. Busey plays it straight, which adds to the humour.

    Harrison Ford in a 24/Homeland type thriller. Goes around the streets fighting crime and saving lives.

    Ed Harris was the first thing that came to my mind.

    Just put a squirrel on Bryan Cranston’s head and there you have it.

    I could see Jeff Daniels totally pulling it off as Donald Trump.

    There’s only one choice:

     

    Donald Trump.

     

    Of course this will have to wait until after Mr. Trump serves his two full terms as the 45th president of the United States.

    By the way: It’s going to be huge. And it will win a huge amount of gorgeous, very huge golden-girl Emmy Awards. And the Emmy Awards, as The Donald will note, are huge.

    Go big or go home. Michael Sheen as Trump, Meryl Streep as Clinton. The entire series focuses on their unlikely progression to a shared Clinton/Trump ticket, and an unlikely covert romance. I think there’s no way a movie about this election is anything but satire.

    Tommy Wiseau. He’s the only person with the ability to understand what Trump is saying.

    Would Darrell Hammond not be allowed to do this? Seems like the clear choice to me, and I think he has the chops to surprise people.

    Alec Baldwin as Trump.  Comedy but plays it straight like 30 Rock.

    I like the idea of Alfred Molina as Trump.

    One thing is clear if such a fun TV series were to be actually in the works: Rosie O’Donnell MUST make a special cameo appearance! After all, The Donald himself even admitted after the recent Republican debate that he owes Rosie one!
