If you’ve been reading the latest headlines about Russian collusion in the Trump campaign and thought the whole thing would make an awesome made-for-TV movie, you’re not alone.
In fact, the idea also occurred to Conan O’Brien, who took the concept one step further on a recent edition of his late-night talk show by offering some actual casting suggestions.
For President Trump, O’Brien suggests Prince Charles, offering up a photo of the Prince of Wales suffering a Trump-like, wind-related hair malfunction.
For Trump’s children, O’Brien sees youngest son Eric portrayed by Draco Malfoy of “Harry Potter” fame, while Ivanka Trump would be played by Muppet Janis, member of rock band Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. Scandal-embroiled Donald Trump Jr. would be played by “a punching dummy you see at any gym.”
First Lady Melania Trump, on the other hand, would be portrayed by “a bored house cat wearing jewelry.”
As for the supporting players, O’Brien envisions “Despicable Me” villain Gru as Russian leader Vladimir Putin and the Mucinex Mucous Monster as publicist Rob Goldstone, while presidential spokesperson Kellyanne Conway would be portrayed by a frying pan full of bacon and eggs.
