Sebastian Stan, the star of "Pam & Tommy" and multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films, is set to play a younger version of former US President Donald Trump in the upcoming movie 'The Apprentice' by Iranian filmmaker Ali Abbasi. According to the reports, “Succession” alum Jeremy Strong and Oscar nominee Maria Bakalova will also appear in the movie, touted as an “exploration of power set in a world of corruption and deceit.”
"The Apprentice" will examine Trump's efforts to build his New York real estate business in the 1970s and 1980s, also digging into his relationship with infamous attorney Roy Cohn. It's a mentor-protege story that charts the origins of an important American dynasty, according to the official logline.
Strong, also known for his film roles in The Trial of the Chicago 7, Molly's Game, and The Big Short, will portray Cohn, a notorious lawyer and fixer whom Trump considered a mentor early in his career.
Bakalova, who received an Academy Award nomination for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, will appear as the late Ivana Trump, a businesswoman who partnered with her then-husband Donald Trump on some of his most prominent real estate projects.
