After the 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' actor is spotted on the set of the upcoming movie, some Internet users claim that he looks too 'good' to play the former U.S. president.

AceShowbiz - First look at Sebastian Stan as Donald Trump in an upcoming movie has surfaced online and people did not hold back from voicing their thoughts on it. Just a few days after it was revealed that the actor was cast as the former president in "The Apprentice", he was spotted in character on the set of the movie.

The Romanian-born actor was filming the movie in Toronto, Canada on Monday, December 4. In photos obtained by Page Six, he rocked the 45th president's wispy, sandy blond hair which was parted to the side.

He was wearing a black, single-breasted wool coat paired with a blue suit and paisley-striped tie underneath. He added a wrist watch and a pair of black loafers as Stan was seen shooting a scene in which his character munched on a sandwich while sitting on a park bench during a snowy day.

After the photos were published by the outlet, many quickly weighed in on Stan's transformation into Trump. Not convinced by his look as the businessman, one person said, "Sebastian Stan as Donald Trump looks like bad Princess Diana cosplay."

"Bro just looks like Luke Skywalker," a second joked. A third person added, "Come on, he'd have to put on at least 150 more pounds, lose the same in hair and he's not orange."

Others think Stan is too "good" to play Trump. "They really got a hot actor like Sebastian Stan to play the orange man," one of them weighed in. Another commented, "Trump has never looked that good." Someone else claimed, "The funny thing to me about casting is that even through Sebastian is remarkably better looking than Trump, I'm sure it bugs Trump that Sebastian isn't taller."

On November 29, it was confirmed that Stan would star in the film from Cannes prize-winning filmmaker Ali Abbasi. The film focuses on young Trump as he builds his real estate business in New York City in the 1970s and '80s.

"The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" star is joined in the cast by Jeremy Strong and Maria Bakalova, who will play Roy Cohn, a notorious lawyer and fixer whom Trump considered a mentor early in his career, and Ivana Trump, the former president's first wife and a businesswoman, respectively.

According to a synopsis, "The Apprentice" is "a mentor-protege story that charts the origins of an American dynasty. Filled with larger than life characters, it reveals the moral and human cost of a culture defined by winners and losers."

No release date is set for the movie just yet.
