Actor Sebastian Stan is playing young Donald Trump in a movie titled The Student from Iranian filmmaker Ali Abbasi.

The cast also includes Succession Emmy winner Jeremy Strong as Roy Cohn and Borat 2 and Bodies Bodies Bodies actor Maria Bakalova as Ivana Trump, reports a media source.

According to the logline: “The Student is an exploration of power and ambition set in a world of corruption and deceit. It’s a mentor-protege story that charts the origins of an American dynasty. Filled with larger than life characters, it reveals the moral and human cost of a culture defined by winners and losers.”
