Alec Baldwin Returning As Donald Trump On New Season Of ‘SNL’

Alec Baldwin isn’t ready to leave his take on Donald Trump behind just yet.

Appearing on James Andrew Miller’s “Origins” podcast on Friday, the actor revealed that he will be returning for the 44th season of Global’s “Saturday Night Live” to continue impersonating the U.S. president.

“I have fun doing it, there’s no doubt about that,” Baldwin said. “They are all old and dear friends of mine, and I love going there. When the show is good, there is nothing like it.”

The 60-year-old added that he doesn’t want the character to overstay its welcome, though.

“I think I’m going to do some of it but not a whole lot,” he said of the Trump sketches, “because I also think, and this is critical, there is a lot of fatigue here.”

“SNL” producer Lorne Michaels also spoke on the podcast about how Baldwin’s involvement in the upcoming season was decided.

“Sometimes I feel like we are still in ‘campaign’ mode. But, I thought – [Alec and I] see each other a fair amount, so we don’t much talk about it in the off-season,” Michaels recalled. “And then, I think he was at the US Open last week, and somebody asked him if he was doing Trump. And he said, ‘Yeah.’ And his agent Matt DelPiano texted me and said, ‘I think he’s doing Trump.’ And I went, ‘Oh, okay.’ But, he is somebody you know you can always count on.”
