He’s hired.

Sebastian Stan graced the streets of Toronto Monday in character as a young Donald Trump as he films the upcoming movie “The Apprentice.”

In pictures obtained exclusively by The Post, Stan, 41, sat on a park bench where he enjoyed a sandwich and a Diet Coke.

He dressed in the allegedly fraudulent businessman’s signature dark suit with a patterned blue and beige tie.

In other shots, Stan walked through the streets of the city with his hands buried in his trench coat as the film crew followed behind him.

Of course, Stan’s wig greatly resembled the former president’s famous pompadour hairstyle with blond-ish bangs swept across his face.

The Post has contacted reps for Stan for comment.

While there’s not many details surrounding the movie, the film’s description reads, ” ‘The Apprentice’ is an exploration of power and ambition set in a world of corruption and deceit. It’s a mentor-protégé 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,” it concludes.

Oscar-nominated actress Maria Bakalova is slated to play Trump’s late first wife, Ivana Trump, while “Succession” star Jeremy Strong will portray attorney Roy Cohn.

The film, which is named after Trump’s reality show that he hosted from 2004 to 2017, doesn’t have a release date.

This isn’t Stan’s first time taking on a real-life polarizing character.

His portrayal of Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in Hulu’s “Pam & Tommy” earned him an Emmy nomination last year.

And in 2017, he portrayed Jeff Gilooly, the abusive ex-husband of figure skater Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) in “I, Tonya.”

He also portrayed Robinhood Markets CEO Vladimir Tenev in “Dumb Money,” which depicted the infamous Gamestop stock surge.

Still, Stan stans were shocked to find out that he would take on the Trump role and made it known on social media.

“This must be April the 1st,” one person tweeted when news of the casting dropped last week. “If someone wanted to cast me as Donald Trump I would be personally offended.”

“Owen Wilson is literally right there for young Don,” another fan wrote, recommending the “Zoolander” actor for the role.

“I love Sebastian Stan & I absolutely hate Donald Trump,” a third conflicted fan wrote. “I personally think it’s far too early for any kind of Trump biopic.”
