LOS ANGELES, Feb. 29 (UPI) -- Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane reprised their roles in The Producers Monday to mock presidential hopeful Donald Trump during Jimmy Kimmel Live's post-Oscars special.

Appearing once again as eager film producers Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, the comedic duo set out to produce a musical so bad that it will fail, allowing them to collect more money.

Settling on Trump after realizing they can raise millions in campaign donations that they can keep after he drops out due to his off-putting remarks, Bialystock and Bloom start production on Trumped.

After seeing that Trump is rising in the polls despite his demeanor, the two are forced to go along with Trumped, much to their surprise.

"Where did we go right?," Bialystock asks before mentioning that Trump has made disparaging remarks about John McCain, immigrants, Muslims and even Heidi Klum.

"He's building a wall, a thousand feet tall. Don't worry because Mexicans are going to pay for it all!," the duo sings onstage as part of the musical, with flashing lights, a giant American flag, and dancers wearing a Trump mask.

Originally a musical written by Mel Brooks, The Producers , featured Bialystock and Bloom making a musical about Adolf Hitler after realizing they could "make more money with a flop than with a hit."

Also during Kimmel's post-Oscars special, guest Ben Affleck smuggled his best friend, Academy Award-nominated actor Matt Damon under his coat in surprising fashion before introducing a new clip from his upcoming film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
