Instantly recognizable and tirelessly self-promoting, Donald Trump has long been a natural candidate for movie and TV cameos. In the 1990s and 2000s, the golden-coiffed casino owner racked up numerous IMDB credits. Julio Macat, director of photography on Home Alone 2, calls him “a bug attracted to bright light.” But once he shows up, he’s likely to throw temper tantrums, make diva-like demands, hit on women, and nitpick the script.
One recurring theme is that Trump wants viewers to know exactly how rich he is, meaning that he should be called a “billionaire,” not a mere “millionaire.” Peter Marc Jacobson, co-creator of The Nanny, found this so amusing that he kept and framed Trump’s script notes. Another common observation is that Trump is not much of an actor, so he’s usually entrusted with very little dialogue. Peter Tolan, who wrote Trump’s episode of The Job, recalls: “He had very little to do. And what little he did, he did very stiffly.”
