The '30 Rock' alum says he'll be back — but in a more limited role

Alec Baldwin, you’re not fired.

After previously saying he wouldn’t keep portraying Donald Trump for “much longer,” the 30 Rock alum has now declared he will be back in the wig and suit for season 43 of Saturday Night Live.

“Yeah, we’re going to fit that in,” he told CNN. “I think people have enjoyed it.” According to CNN, Baldwin’s other commitments will mean a little less of his Trump impersonation, with fans getting “a couple celery sticks” instead of a “whole meal.”

Reps for the actor had no comment when contacted by EW. NBC did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.

Since debuting as the then-presidential candidate in the season 42 premiere, Baldwin has earned critical acclaim for his impression of Trump. Despite the success, in a March interview with Extra, the actor didn’t seem to be on board for the long-term.

“The maliciousness of this White House has people very worried,” he said. “That’s why I’m not going to do it much longer, the impersonation. I don’t [know] how much more people can take it.”
