Brendan Gleeson as Donald Trump is the casting to end all casting

As scary as Gleeson has ever looked

When the first trailer for The Comey Rule dropped and we got a sneak glimpse at Brendan Gleeson as Trump, we were a little bit taken aback.

We weren't surprised that he was able to nail the voice, but it was still somewhat startling to see.

And this new trailer isn't any different.

Once again, Gleeson steals the show, coming across as absolutely terrifying with every line that he says, and coming as close to spot on as possible with regards to the iconic voice.


Take a look here:

The Comey Rule is set to air on Showtime on 27 and 28 September, and also stars the likes of Jeff Daniels (as Comey), as well as Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy and Michael Kelly.

There are no details yet about where the show will be syndicated in Ireland or other countries, but we definitely have our fingers crossed.

The series is based on the book A Higher Loyalty, a memoir written by James Comey — the FBI director who was fired by Donald Trump whilst in the middle of investigating the matter of his collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
