Donald Trump’s Weird Wyoming Movie Connection [Video]
Years before Donald Trump became President, he appeared in one of the weirdest, and worst, movies ever filmed in Wyoming.
In 1989, Trump co-starred with supermodel Bo Derek, legendary actor Anthony Quinn and famed Wyoming lawyer Gerry Spence in "Ghosts Can't Do It," which was filmed in Jackson.
The movie depicted Derek as a widow who attempts to drown a young man in order for the ghost of her late husband to inhabit his body.
According to a Cinema Snob review, "This is one of the worst things in the history of things. This is a movie that has to be seen to be believed."
In 1990, "Ghosts Can't Do It" won the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Picture. Trump was also awarded with the Golden Raspberry for Worst Supporting Actor.
It was the first of several movie roles Trump would land in the '90s. His other film credits include "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York", "The Little Rascals" and "Zoolander."
The real estate mogul turned politician also made cameo appearances on several television shows, including "Spin City", "Sex and the City"and "The Nanny" before hosting his own popular NBC series "The Apprentice."
"Ghosts Can't Do It" is, arguably, the worst movie ever filmed in Wyoming. Over the years, five films either set or shot in the Cowboy State went on to win Academy Awards, including "Shane", "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", "Dances with Wolves", "Brokeback Mountain" and "Django Unchained".
