Wednesday night’s vice-presidential debate has inspired a call for actor Jeff Goldblum to reprise his role from “The Fly” for a “Saturday Night Live” skit.
Twitter has been alight with calls for an “SNL” parody of the moment that a fly landed on Mike Pence’s head during his debate with Kamala Harris.

Many people now want Goldblum to take part in a sketch on the debate, since the actor played a man-turned-insect in the 1986 cult horror movie “The Fly”.
If SNL doesn’t get Jeff Goldblum to play the fly in this week’s episode, they’re missing a massive opportunity.

I hope SNL gets Jeff Goldblum to play the fly on Pence’s head.

Goldblum has yet to respond to the requests.
