Alec Baldwin says he’ll appear on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live later this month.
“The season premiere is Sept. 30. I’m going to do that. I’m going to do a couple of them,” Baldwin, who plays President Donald Trump on the sketch comedy series, told Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. How many episodes Baldwin will do, however, remains unclear. “We’re going to do it until … never mind,” Baldwin teased to DeGeneres.
Of course, it’s not a huuuge surprise that Baldwin will return. In July, the actor said he expected to play Trump on SNL — at least to start. “We’re going to fit that in. I think people have enjoyed it,” Baldwin told CNN, while also noting that a busy fall schedule for the star meant his appearances on SNL may become more scattered.
Baldwin, an Emmy nominee for supporting actor in a comedy series for his SNL work, appeared as Trump as recently as last month during an episode of SNL Weekend Update: Summer Edition.
