First images of Laurence Fox portraying Hunter Biden in the upcoming film My Son Hunter show the actor with prop cocaine on his nose as he fakes being passed out on the breast of a female colleague on set. 

The professional images from the set exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com show the British actor recreating some iconic and compromising situations associated with the first son – including Biden’s latest art endeavors and his history of drug use and addiction. 

Weeks before the 2020 presidential election, a series of compromising images from Biden’s hard drive were published online. The images included one of Biden passed out with a crack pipe hanging out of his mouth.

Biden has been open about his struggle with addiction.

He told CBS in an April interview: ‘I spent more time on my hands and knees picking through rugs, smoking anything that even remotely resembled crack cocaine. I probably smoked more Parmesan cheese than anyone that you know. I mean, I went one time for 13 days without sleeping, and smoking crack and drinking vodka exclusively throughout that entire time.’

The president’s son was kicked out of the Navy Reserve after failing a drug test and entered rehab several times for substance abuse problems.

Fox tweeted an image of costar John James portraying President Joe Biden and said: ‘I love you dad’

Fox, 43, shared a tweet Monday aimed at his costar John James, 65, who is portraying Joe Biden in the movie from conservative Irish filmmakers and married couple Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney.

‘I love you dad,’ Fox tweeted along with an image of James portraying Biden on set in Serbia. The actor also tagged President Biden’s non-government Twitter handle in the post. 

DailyMail.com shared an exclusive first look of James playing Biden on Monday. 

The veteran daytime soap opera star is most known for his 1980s role of Jeff Colby in Dynasty, which ran from 1981-1989, and its spin-off series The Colbys, which ran from 1985-1987.

The crew flew out to Serbia at the end of October to start four weeks of filming for the biopic aimed at showing the partying lifestyle and dodging business dealings of the president’s son, which the filmmakers say is widely ignored by the media.

Fox posted a risque image from set in October donning a white loin cloth, orange scarf and sunglasses – and nothing else – in an outfit indicative of one of the photos found on the president’s son’s harddrive.

‘Everything is fine. I’m in a really good place,’ Fox sarcastically posted in the image from the set where he was holding up a peace sign alongside a woman in lingerie. 

There have been ethics concerns and questions from critics over worries of buyers intending to gain influence over the president by buying his son’s art pieces for high prices.

The pieces which are featured at exhibits at the Georges Bergès Gallery in New York and Los Angeles.

Biden’s latest endeavor is art. In October, at least five of his prints from an exhibit at the Georges Bergès Gallery in New York sold for $75,000 each

The art selling for such a high price points has critics wondering if the buyers could be trying to gain influence over President Joe Biden through purchasing his recovering drug addict son’s paintings

Conservative filmmakers and married couple Phelim McAleer (left) and Ann McElhinney (right) said when announcing the film earlier this year: ‘The truth deserves to be told and it needs to be seen by as many people as possible. An entertaining and enjoyable movie is the best way to [do that]… If the media won’t do their jobs, we’ll do it for them’

The gallery and White House have vowed that all buyers will be kept confidential from Biden and his father – as well as everyone at the White House – to avoid any perception of influence.

At least five of Biden’s prints have sold for $75,000 each from his New York City show in October, but critics have claimed the work is not worth that and just at a premium because he is the president’s son.

James sustained a head injury Saturday while in Serbia filming the biopic, DailyMail.com revealed this week.

The actor’s injury involved a lot of blood, a trip to the hospital, stitches and a bit of clumsiness as he slammed his head into a door while off-set at a restaurant in Belgrade.

‘I was walking into a Belgrade restaurant and I collided with the side of a glass door,’ James said of the incident. ‘I had a large cut above my eye and there was a lot of blood on the footpath.’

He detailed: ‘I was pretty stunned and went back to the Metropol Hotel where I’m staying and the manager Nicholas Kalogeras took over and personally rushed me to a hospital.’

Despite a packed Serbian emergency room, James said he received ‘top class treatment.’

‘I received top class treatment and a couple of stitches and will be back on the set on Monday,’ he said. ‘The show must go on.’

Photos of the incident show James with a cloth around his head.

Fox shared a photo on Twitter from set in October showing him donning a look the president’s son was seen wearing in a photo leaked from his hard drive

James , 65, detailed that he walked into a door while eating at a restaurant on Saturday that resulted in a bloody mess requiring stitches on his forehead but persisted: ‘The show must go on’

Fox, a British politician and actor, announced in September that he signed on to play the U.S. president’s son.

The actor-turned-leader for the United Kingdom’s conservative Reclaim political party said he is being ‘un-canceled’ by McAleer and McElhinney to play Biden.

‘Hello, I have some really good news – or really bad news depending on which side of the ever-widening political divide that you sit,’ Fox said in a straight-to-camera video first obtained by DailyMail.com. ‘I have been temporarily un-canceled and asked to don my acting shoes again. Why? To play Hunter Biden in a new independent film called ‘My Son Hunter.’ 

‘It’s a brilliant, surreal and funny script,’ he said of the film, adding: ‘Basically because it’s true.’

‘The Hunter story fascinates me so much, especially the vigor with which the mainstream media continue to try and suppress it,’ Fox continued in his taped comments. ‘I couldn’t resist the offer to enter his world and tell his truth. So on one level we are both being un-canceled – Hunter’s story and Hunter’s truth can finally be told.’

Fox then looked off camera and said to himself: ‘I wonder if I can still act. About to find out.’

While filming, Martin Daubney, deputy leader of the Reclaim Party, will temporarily take over.

‘Don’t worry friends and foes – well I don’t have any foes, I love you all – I’m not stepping back from my day job as leader of the Reclaim Party,’ the politician said in the short clip announcing his new role as Hunter earlier this fall.

‘But for a few weeks I will be juggling two jobs at the same time – and therefore, the ever-valiant Martin Daubney will be keeping the ship steady until I return,’ he added.

Joining the team as director is Bond villain Robert Davi – also known for his roles in The Goonies and Die Hard.

‘One of my biggest concerns was in the casting of Hunter,’ Davi said. ‘For Hunter we needed someone who is not just a great actor, but a brilliant mind.’

‘Joe Biden has repeatedly said Hunter is the ‘smartest man’ he knows,’ Davi continued. ‘We also needed someone with the pedigree, edge, emotional range and deep sensitivity. One may think there are many who could play him and that is so. But how many could brilliantly play him?’

He added: ‘I’m thrilled that Laurence Fox will be Hunter Biden.’

McAleer and McElhinney are Irish filmmakers and authors who have produced several films mostly backed by crowdfunding targeting conservative viewers – and My Son Hunter is no exception.

Some films include ‘Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer’, which is a true crime drama based on abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell; and ‘FrackNation’, which addressed what they called misinformation about hydraulic fracturing or ‘fracking’.
