Alec Baldwin is to portray Donald Trump again on Saturday Night Live tomorrow night (November 19).
The 30 Rock actor’s impersonations of Trump became a major talking point in the run-up to this month’s US Presidential election. Michael Stipe recently blamed Baldwin’s impression of the billionaire businessman, in part, for his unexpected political rise.
The actor’s performance as Trump on SNL tomorrow, which has been confirmed by Entertainment Weekly, will be his first since the Republican candidate was elected President.
Discussing his portrayal of Trump recently, Baldwin said: “I’m not an impressionist, per se, but if you do any kind of comedy and they ask you to do that, most of the time, there’s some degree of appreciation, I think, involving somebody you like.
“Trump is somebody who — I don’t hate Trump, but he’s not somebody I admire, so it was more difficult.”
The xx are also due to guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Ahead of their performance the trio have made an awkward appearance in a teaser trailer.
Meanwhile, Kanye West has shocked fans by coming out in support of Trump. The rapper said on stage in San Jose last night that if he had voted in this month’s Presidential election, he would have ticked Trump’s box.
