Matt Damon is taking a flamethrower to the conception that filmmakers willingly put Donald Trump of their movies.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Damon claimed Trump archaic to direct on having a part written for him in alternate for allowing productions to make utilize of his properities.
“The deal modified into as soon as that if you happen to wished to shoot in for sure one of his structures, you needed to write him in a part,” Damon acknowledged. “[Director] Martin Brest needed to write something in Scent of a Girl — and the total crew modified into as soon as in on it. It be crucial to raze an hour of your day with a bullsh– shot: Donald Trump walks in and Al Pacino’s respect, ‘Hi there, Mr. Trump!’ — you needed to call him by name — and then he exits. You raze a bit time so that that you just would be able to even rating the allow, and then you positively can lower the scene out. But I teach in Dwelling Alone 2 they left it in.”
Trump typically appeared in movies and on television in the Nineties and early 2000s, including the aforementioned Dwelling Alone sequel, The Accomplice, Eddie, and Two Weeks Behold.
