Meryl Streep Playing Donald Trump On Stage Is The Strangest Thing You HAVE TO SEE TODAY!

no title

It all makes sense — Meryl Streep really is the greatest actor of our time!

The multiple Oscar winner is so talented, in fact, she was brave enough to don orange face and take on her most challenging and complicated role yet: Donald Trump!

The star joined The Good Wife's Christine Baranski on stage at the Public Theater Gala last night in New York City to perform a bit from the musical Kiss Me Kate!

It was a reimagined song and scene, set to showcase Streep as Trump, and Baranski as Hillary Clinton in a new way to think about chauvinism, all in the style of the musical inspired by William Shakespeare's Taming Of The Shrew!

The theme of the gala, held at the Delcorte Theater in NYC's Central Park, was The United States of Shakespeare, so it makes sense Streep and Baranski would perform a commentary on that — but the head-turner here is the Trump get-up!

Watch Streep perform and sing as The Donald in the grand finale of the event (below)!!!

Shonda Rhimes' Next Hit Series Is A Sequel To Romeo & Juliet!

no title

Shonda Rhimes is the modern day William Shakespeare, officially.

With Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder currently killing it on ABC, it's no surprise that yet another ShondaLand scripted series was just given a pilot order.

Still Star-Crossed will follow the characters who managed to survive Shakespeare's literary classic as they deal with the deaths of Romeo and Juliet — but knowing Shonda, there's gotta be at least four love triangles thrown into the mix somehow.

Video: Scandal & HTGAWM Mid-Season Premiere Trailers

Scandal co-executive producer Heather Mitchell will helm the 16th century drama, and we're excited to see what quirky actors they get to fill Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes' shoes!

There's no word on when the series would air if it does get picked up, but with Shonda's other new show The Catch airing March 24, there's not about to be a shortage of must-see dramas any time soon.

Are U at all interested in another ABC period piece??

Michael Fassbender & Marion Cotillard Are Bringing Macbeth Back To The Big Screen And It Looks EPIC! Watch The Trailer HERE!

Because everyone knows the best movies are the ones that are based on books you were forced to read in high school English class!!

Arguably one of the most famous tragedies ever written, Macbeth has been retold and retold TONS of times already! Well now Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard will be taking a crack at the story, and this is NOT the same version you read in class!

Instead of focusing on the paranoia and mental anguish the titular character goes through in the book, this trailer is filled with epic battle sequences that look like they were lifted straight from Game Of Thrones!
