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

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:

The actress told Vanity Fair on Wednesday:

“It would seem somewhat logical – we have that strong jawline, don’t we? I can play people with whom I drastically disagree. So yeah, we could have a revolving door of people playing the cabinet members and all.”

We can totally see it — though Kate McKinnon played a hilariously clueless Betsy in last week’s episode.

As for Bannon, he’s still being played by a grim reaper — so there’s still a good chance Rosie could make her debut under that grim cloak!

C’mon, Lorne Michaels, how can you say no to this!?
