Helen Mirren wants to play Donald Trump

Who would play Donald Trump better — Helen Mirren or Alec Baldwin

"I love it. I've nearly got the hair!"

"But you know, a fantastic sort of slightly Shakespearean character".

So it goes that Helen Mirren is eager to play Donald Trump, and believes that she has the acting chops to do it.

"And Mirren has revealed if a production based on the United States leader was to arise, she would like to explore Trump's upbringing, and his family life in the project". He is an extraordinary character. "He may have a Shakespearean fall, I don't know, but he is an extraordinary character".

It's 2017, and the Americans have elected a crazed lunatic who used to host a middling reality TV show, Ireland has an openly-gay Taoiseach, every male celebrity is probably some kind of sexual monster, and Helen Mirren wants to play said crazed lunatic who used to host a middling reality TV show. I would say real life is so much more interesting than anything you can make up.

"I don't think that would be too hard to penetrate quite honestly", she added. You look at the upbringing. "You look at the schooling, the father, the mother", she explained.

Donald Trump has even been imitated by the likes of Johnny Depp, Alec Baldwin, Jimmy Fallon, Darrell Hammond, and even another Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep even before becoming the President. I don't know much about Trump's background, but if I was to play him, I would definitely start there. "That's what you have to start with, the child, and the child is very much in Trump".

Meanhwile, on the professional front, Mirren will be next seen in "The Leisure Seeker" alongside Donald Sutherland.
