The Ellen DeGeneres Show featured Ellen and guest Johnny Depp on Thursday and they were having a chat as part of his promotional blitz for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
The topic of the discussion is Depp’s portrayal of Trump for Funny or Die‘s Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie parody. Ellen asked if Depp had seen Baldwin’s impression of the president on Saturday Night Live. He hadn’t.
“Well, I’ve seen Trump do Trump,” said the actor. “Which is shocking to me.”
When Ellen asked if he likes to do take over from Baldwin for that special late night gig, Depp was very open about it.
“Sure,” answered Depp. “Because then, basically, Alec’s done all the work. I can just copy him.”
