Saturday Night Live is all about having fun, creating comedic political jokes as well as featuring special guests. Further, they’ve nailed it since the election that has The United States split apart with anger and resentment.
USA Today had a chance to catch up with Alec Baldwin about his impersonation of Donald Trump.
“I had a lot of fun with [the cast], and when Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider wrote [Trump sketches in 2016 and 2017], that was new, it was fresh and the ratings were good. But I feel like I’m done with that now. I’m so done with that.”
With this in mind, USA Today had to know if he would be returning to the role, asking if he would consider playing the part again on SNL.
Additionally, it’s this role that won him a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series back in 2017. He responded with a firm answer to their question.
“I can’t imagine I would do it again. I just can’t. They should find somebody who wants to do it.” Baldwin cited comparisons between his impression of Trump and Anthony Atamanuik’s impression on The President Show, giving his blessing to that casting idea. “If [Atamanuik] wants the job, it’s his,” he told the publication. “He can have it.”
Unfortunately, it sounds like he isn’t feeling the role. But that’s okay, the SNL crew has some amazing talent who will more than likely, still crack us up with their political comedy.
Hey, maybe Leslie Jones can step up to the plate? Or hell, Pete Davidson!
