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:

Rosie O'Donnell Wants To Make SNL Dreams Come True With One Epic Move To Upset Donald Trump!

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:

no title

"I have been trying so hard to do a Mean Girls 2. It is not in my hands. I know Tina Fey and Lorne Michaels and all of Paramount [Pictures] are very busy. But I will keep forcing it and pushing it on them until we do it… I would love to have Jamie Lee Curtis and Jimmy Fallon in the movie. I've already written a treatment for it, so I just need a response."

Time to pump in some fresh blood!

Last month, Lorne Michaels made the surprising decision to not renew the contracts of two of Saturday Night Live's veteran cast members — Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah.

But like always, the aftermath of the brutal cuts comes with the addition of new faces on the NBC sketch series.

Jay Pharoah Finally Breaks His Silence After Surprise SNL Firing… But Is He Hinting At Behind-The-Scenes Drama?!

no title

Live from New York it's… only three of the cast?

Television viewers were modestly shocked on Tuesday when it was announced that both Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah had been unceremoniously fired from Saturday Night Live after six years on the late night sketch show.

Not only were they arguably the two most talented male players in the cast, but they're also two of the most featured comedians… which means Lorne Michaels must have something big planned for Season 42 to replace them…

While Taran addressed his sudden departure shortly after the NBC news broke, Jay remained suspiciously quiet all day long — as did fellow axed actor Jon Rudnitsky, but he was still new, so…

Luckily, the Barack Obama impersonator finally referenced his termination in an Instagram post on Wednesday alongside Taran and Vanessa Bayer… but is he subtly placing blame on

A THIRD Saturday Night Live Cast Member Just Got Cut — PLUS 20 Other SNL Stars Who Were Fired!

no title

We guess bad things really do come in threes…

Saturday Night Live viewers were shocked on Tuesday when it was reported that fan-favorites Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah had both been let go from the late night show after six years on the air.

However, it seems as though Lorne Michaels wasn't content with cutting just two of his line-up, because featured player Jon Rudnitsky followed them right out the door later the same day!

But if Jay, Jon, or Taran happen to be your favorite, don't fret — plenty of today's hottest stars were one once fired from the NBC series, too!

Just look at Robert Downey, Jr., Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Sarah Silverman! All three of them had less-than-stellar stints on the show, and they turned out fine.

So who else has been fired from SNL in its 41-season span??
