Most of us probably known the tall actor, Matthew Lillard from his roles as Billy in Scream and more notably as Shaggy Rogers in the live-action Scooby-Doo movies as well as the voice of the same character in various animation shorts and video games.
While he is most well known for his work as a comedic actor, his acting prowess extends to more dramatic roles. The actor himself is also very vocal on Twitter when it comes to some political issues, especially concerning the U.S President, Donald Trump.
Really Wanted to Play Trump on the Big Screen
Lillard responded to a comment on Twitter claiming that the comparison to him and Trump was mean, but also that he would be available for the role if the opportunity presents itself.
The initial comment included a side by side photo of the President and Lillard, who look shockingly similar, with a plea for the actor to give a part in one of the potential movies to be made about the “Trump regime.”
Lillard, however, has tweeted in response to his original tweet regarding this, claiming that it was just him trolling himself, though many fans remain hopeful that he was at least somewhat serious about his casting for the role.
As of yet, it is still unclear if Matthew Lillard was joking about throwing his hat in the ring for the role.
Regardless if it was a joke, though, many fans are now standing behind him and supporting him in the fact that he would make a great Trump for the big screen. The actor is very vocal on Twitter about political issues, especially Donald Trump, so he would be able to understand the intricacies of doing such a portrayal.
But, what do you all think guys? Do you think Lillard is the perfecr actor for the role? And which Lillard’s movie / role is your favorite ever? Sound off OK?
