Listen up, Hollywood casting directors. Bryan Cranston wants to bring Donald Trump's life to the big screen.

The award-winning actor turned out for the 2016 Emmys looking dapper as ever, along the way chatting with E! News' Giuliana Rancicabout his aspirations to play the controversial presidential candidate. 

"You know, there's several characters who come to mind, but I mean, currently, Donald Trump seems to be the character who you think you'd want to be able to do. They're going to do his life story at some point and I'd like to be considered for that," Cranston admitted.

After all, his dream role isn't actually too farfetched.

Cranston, 60, has already dabbled in playing political figures, most recently in All The Way as Lyndon B. Johnson. The academy of Television Arts & Sciences honored his performance in the HBO drama with a nomination in tonight's Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie category.

"It would be huge!" Bryan added, offering a picture perfect imitation of Trump's signature saying and accompanying hand gestures.

As for who would take on wife Melania Trump in a film adaptation, he offered none other than Heidi Klum in the starring role. "Because I'm older now, I mean, that would be a perfect, don't you think?" Bryan mused.

If Cranston manages to nab an Emmy tonight, we'd venture to wager he'd be one step closer to making the movie industry great again.
