Bald­win’s ‘SNL’ Trump to re­turn

Los Angeles Times - - CULTURE MONSTER - — Libby Hill

Good news for fans of “Satur­day Night Live.” Alec Bald­win con­firmed to CNN on Mon­day that he will reprise his fa­mous im­pres­sion of President Trump when the sketch-com­edy se­ries re­turns for Sea­son 43 in the fall.

“Yeah, we’re go­ing to fit that in. I think peo­ple have en­joyed it,” Bald­win said dur­ing an in­ter­view pro­mot­ing his up­com­ing film, “Blind.”

Bald­win’s de­pic­tion of the president did not go un­no­ticed by Trump, who called the ac­tor “a dis­as­ter” and the long-run­ning “SNL” se­ries “a fail­ing show” dur­ing a Jan­uary in­ter­view with Sean Han­nity.

Sea­son 42 of “Satur­day Night Live” boasted the show’s high­est rat­ings in 22 years, but Bald­win cau­tioned that his re­turn will be “a cou­ple cel­ery sticks” as op­posed to “a whole meal.”
