NEW YORK, Sept. 28 (UPI) — 30 Rock Emmy winner — and vocal Democrat — Alec Baldwin is to play GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live this season.
The sketch comedy show’s Twitter account posted a 15-second clip showing Baldwin and SNL cast member Kate McKinnon prepping to play Trump and his Democrat rival Hillary Clinton.
“Trump vs. Clinton, Saturday Night Live, Oct. 1,” the video said, referring to the series’ Season 42 premiere.
Baldwin is no stranger to SNL. He has hosted the program more times than anyone else — 16.
The show’s previous Trump portrayers include Darrell Hammond, Taran Killam and the late Phil Hartman.
