Stormy Daniels lawyer: Hopefully someone 'really good-looking' plays me in a Trump movie

Michael Avenatti says if there’s a big-screen version of the Trump era, Hollywood better find someone “really good-looking” to play him.

“I mean, whoever plays me, I hope they’re really good-looking and charming,” Avenatti, the lawyer representing adult-film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President TrumpDonald John TrumpSupreme Court comes to Trump's aid on immigration Trump is failing on trade policy Trump holds call with Netanyahu to discuss possible US-Israel defense treaty MORE, told ITK with a grin.

But the high-profile lawyer had a certain name in mind when asked who might play Trump.

“I think Baldwin would be great to play Trump,” Avenatti said, referring to Alec Baldwin, who famously portrays the commander in chief on “Saturday Night Live.”


ITK caught up with Avenatti at Saturday’s 25th annual Garden Brunch ahead of the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) dinner.

This year’s VIP get-together ahead of the dinner — hosted by Tammy Haddad; Hilary Rosen and Megan Murphy; Fred Humphries; Mark and Sally Ein; Mark Testoni; Greta Van Susteren and John Coale; Franco Nuschese; Fritz Brogan and Kevin Sheekey — honored military veterans and featured a presentation by ABC News’s Bob Woodruff in which a house was donated to a vet.

Jordan Klepper, host of Comedy Central's "The Opposition" and attending his first WHCA festivities, told ITK that the shindigs leading up to the dinner seemed like a great equalizer.

“I went to an event last night where there were people from the press and people from the administration together, and I think when you put people in a room with loud music where they’re forced to socialize and eat appetizers, you realize they’re just like us,” Klepper said. “They’re awkward and don’t know what to do with their hands.”
