no title

A lot can change in between seasons for Saturday Night Live — from swapping cast members to pandering to different audiences!

And now that he's had some distance from the show, former star Taran Killam thinks SNL could make a really funny sketch about how hypocritical it is!

In a new interview with NPR, the actor ripped on the legendary NBC program for inviting Donald Trump on as a guest host in 2015 during the campaign then relentlessly roasting him the following season.

In between promoting his upcoming movie Killing Gunther, Killam mulled over why SNL flipped the switch so hard on its Trump depiction amid the dumpster fire that was the 2016 presidential election. He admitted:

Saturday Night Live stayed noticeably tight-lipped about the Harvey Weinstein scandal during the October 7 show.

And the decision to NOT roast the ousted indie movie mogul came from SNL creator Lorne Michaels himself. Reportedly, Michaels was asked about the MIA Weinstein jokes as he was leaving the sketch show's after-party at 4 a.m.

no title

Jack Donaghy may have never wanted to get with Liz Lemon in 30 Rock, but the same can't be said for Alec Baldwin when he first laid eyes on Tina Fey.

In fact, when the 58-year-old actor met the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt creator for the first time, he "fell in love"!

Appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair's April issue, the veteran actor reflected on his Saturday Night Live history — including the first time he was introduced to his future sitcom costar.

In an adaption from his upcoming memoir Nevertheless, Baldwin recounts:

"When I first met Tina Fey — beautiful and brunette, smart and funny, by turns smug and diffident and completely uninterested in me or anything I had to say — I had the same reaction that I'm sure many men and women have: I fell in love."

At the time, Fey was the head writer at SNL and Baldwin was set to host that week's show.

The writers and producers congregated in Lorne Michaels' office when Baldwin turned to talent coordinator Marci Klein to ask if Fey was single. He wrote:

Rosie O'Donnell Continues Her Campaign To Play Steve Bannon On SNL — But She's Not The Only One Who Wants A Role!

no title

Well, now we're just gonna be upset if this doesn't actually happen!

Earlier this week, Rosie O'Donnell nominated herself to play Donald Trump's key advisor Steve Bannon on Saturday Night Live, creating the best casting opportunity since Tina Fey as Sarah Palin.

Rosie's casting suggestion followed the President's disapproval over his press secretary Sean Spicer being played by Melissa McCarthy — a "woman"! — last week.

It's still unknown whether the NBC comedy series has considered casting Trump's longtime nemesis as his current White House puppet master, but Rosie is certainly making it hard to say no!

On Thursday, the 54-year-old changed her Twitter profile to an illustration of her face superimposed on a photo of Bannon — and hot damn, she looks too perfect to pass up!

But the former TV host isn't the only celeb hoping to take a crack at playing Trump's administration on the sketch series!

The Good Wife star Christine Baranski said she'd be more than happy to take on the role of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, given their similar appearance:

no title

This would be the best casting of all time!!

Saturday Night Live has brought some serious star power to portray Donald Trump's living political cartoon of an administration.

Since getting well acquainted with Alec Baldwin's incarnation of President Puppet Boy, we were recently blessed with Melissa McCarthy playing press secretary Sean Spicer.

And after Trump was reportedly "rattled" over McCarthy's portrayal of the White House gum aficionado, an all-too-perfect casting opportunity presented itself for the next high-profile role: Rosie O'Donnell as Steve Bannon!!

In a string of tweets on Monday night, the comedienne nominated herself to play Trump's key advisor — and we honestly couldn't think of anyone better!

The suggestion came up after Politico reported Trump was irked over Spicer looking "weak" in the sketch and that he was played by a woman, prompting many Twitter users to suggest an SNL appearance from the OG Trump nemesis.

And the former talk show host was more than game for the role, responding on Twitter:

I've already written a treatment for it, so I just need a response."
