Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane Are “Trumped”
If there was one thing a near play-by-play of The Producers could ever properly spoof, it’s definitely the 2016 presidential election. More specifically, that Donald Trump is somehow, somehow a serious contender in this race.
It’s wonderful seeing Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane back in their familiar roles once again, and perhaps even better seeing Cloris Leachman join them. Interspersed with actual clips of Trump’s speeches, this parody from Jimmy Kimmel Live paints a horrifying picture of the world we’re currently living in. And if you know anything about how The Producers ends, well, you should be even more terrified.
At least The Producers is a musical. What upside did we end up with?
