Saturday Night Live returns for it’s 42nd season this weekend, and while there’s lots to be excited about (the return of Kate McKinnon, new cast members, election coverage, and a performance by The Weeknd!) the one thing you should be MOST excited about is the casting of SNL veteran and funnyman Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump!
Yes, the show just announced in a hilarious promo (below) that Alec will be playing The Donald across McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton in the show’s premiere… and for the entire season! Here’s a preview of what his Donald looks and acts like:
Alec has a history of hilarious appearances and hosting gigs on the show, so he’s sure to hit all the right comedy points when he steps on the stage (clearly, they’re going to cover the debate!). Just like last season’s decision to cast Larry David as Bernie Sanders, this is an example of SNL using the perfect mix of seasoned veterans with comedy newbies to get the most laughs. We love it!
Tune in to the season premiere of SNL this Saturday, October 1. Margot Robbie hosts and The Weeknd performs.
