Romanian-American actor Sebastian Stan is playing young Donald Trump in a movie by Iranian filmmaker Ali Abbasi (“Holy Spider”).

"The Apprentice" began principal photography this week and features “Succession” Emmy winner Jeremy Strong as Roy Cohn and “Borat 2” and “Bodies Bodies Bodies” actor Maria Bakalova as Ivana Trump. 

The movie focuses on Trump as he builds his real estate business in New York City in the 1970s and ’80s, according to media reports.

Abbasi is directing the pic from a script by Gabriel Sherman. 

"The Apprentice" is described as a mentor-protégé narrative that documents the start of an American dynasty and tackles themes including power, corruption, and deception.

Producers are Daniel Bekerman of Scythia Films, Jacob Jarek of Profile Pictures, and Ruth Treacy of Taylored Films. Sherman, Grant Johnson and Amy Baer, in association with Mark Rappaport’s Kinematics, serve as executive producers.

This year, Stan received Golden Globe and Emmy nominations for his portrayal of rocker Tommy Lee in Hulu’s biographical drama “Pam & Tommy.” 

He is most well known for his Marvel Cinematic Universe role as Bucky Barnes, aka the Winter Soldier. 

His most recent appearance as the hero came on the Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and he’s next due to star in “The Thunderbolts” in 2025. 

Stan also played Robinhood co-founder Vlad Tenev in this fall’s GameStop stock movie “Dumb Money,” and his recent roles include “Ghosted,” “Sharper,” “Bupkis,” “Fresh” and “The 355.”
