'Fire and Fury' Anti-Trump Book Already Becoming a Cable Series

Who will play him?

The explosive non-fiction book that Donald Trump tried to shut down, Fire and Fury will become the basis for a new HBO series about Donald Trump. But, who will play him?

On Wednesday, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Michael Wolff’s book — Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House — has been purchased by Endeavor Content, with plans to adapt the book into a series for television. Most media pundits consider HBO to be a likely place for a series, though at this time, no network has been announced.

While Americans scratch their heads over the prospect of enjoying a well-made cable series which depicts the most unpopular President in history, it’s also a time when people will wonder which actor could possibly play Trump in such a series.

In the lead-up to the 2016 election, and afterward, Alec Baldwin has become famous for his send-up of Trump on Saturday Night Live, but would he be right for an HBO series?

Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump on SNL

Assuming the Fire and Fury series airs during Trump’s term, it will be one of many TV series satirizing, or outright attacking, a sitting President. In fact, there are already two series out now about Trump. That’s My Bush, Stephen Colbert’s cartoon about Trump, and Comedy Central’s The Trump Show.

Still, a prestige TV level drama about Donald Trump feels unprecedented at this particular moment. The wild popularity of Wolff’s book is also fueled by the fact that the President actively tried to prevent publisher Henry Holt from releasing the book in the first place.

Will President Trump try to stop the production of the TV series Fire and Fury? And if so, will there be a movie made about Trump trying to stop book publications and TV series several years from now?

'Avengers: Endgame' Quantum Realm Theories May Be Focused on the Wrong Hero

Here's why Doctor Strange is the actual key to unlocking the Quantum Realm.

The Quantum Realm is all but confirmed to play a huge role in Avengers: Endgame, and that’s led everyone to assume Ant-Man is a key part of how the remaining Avengers will defeat Thanos. But what if another character is actually far more important when it comes to whatever quantum shenanigans occur in Endgame? What if it’s actually Doctor Strange who leads the way? After all, he’s already been to the Quantum Realm once before.

'Star Wars: Episode IX' Leak Seemingly Confirmed by Official Set Photo

The Star Wars: Episode IX title is still a mystery, but on Friday, fans got their first official look at the new movie courtesy of director J.J. Abrams. The image, which shows Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) in an emotional embrace is meant to mark the last day of filming for the latest Star Wars movie, but it might also confirm a pretty huge Episode 9 leak from earlier this week.

'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Premiere Is Missing One Very Important Character

Winter has arrived in Westeros, but the Night King may be missing in action when Game of Thrones Season 8 premieres this April. A full cast list of the first episode of the show’s final season leaked this week, and while it’s full of surprising characters we didn’t expect to see again, one major absence may be even more telling.

'Fortnite' Season 8 Map Changes Coming as Earthquakes Rip Up the Island

We could be looking at a whole new map very soon.

Rumbling deep below the surface of the Fortnite: Battle Royale island is the secret that could reshape the entire map before Season 8. There’s a lot more than just the Overtime challenges to keep us busy for the rest of the month.

Players have been reporting seismic activity in the form of in-game earthquakes in Fortnite for about a week already, and things began to get more dire Thursday and Friday as huge cracks began to emerge in the ground at various locations. The first seemingly formed Thursday southwest of Tomato Temple, a second formed north of Tomato Temple, and the third emerged overnight near Lazy Links.

'Alita: Battle Angel' Ending Cameo Was "Tough Casting" That Sets Up Sequel

There is a surprise waiting at the end of Alita: Battle Angel. The new sci-fi movie from Robert Rodriguez, based on Yukito Kishiro’s manga Gunnm, has a previously unannounced celebrity and former Marvel actor playing one of the movie’s biggest roles. But who? And, most importantly, why?

In interviews with director Robert Rodriguez, he revealed that the surprise casting is meant to lock in capable actors for big roles in future Alita sequels, which was a lot tougher to pull off than it looks. (Maybe not as tough as motorball, but still.)
