Boy, that SNL train keeps right on chugging today. Following word that Lin-Manuel Miranda (and maybe Emily Blunt) would follow Margot Robbie as this weekend’s Season 42 premiere host, there’s even more breaking news. Jack Donaghy himself, Alec Baldwin will take over the role of Donald Trump, with the first debate promo already online.
When television staple ‘Saturday Night Live’ returns on September 24 for its 37th season, it’ll have a familiar host — actor Alec Baldwin.
It will be the record-setting sixteenth time the ’30 Rock’ star, 53, has hosted the NBC late-night sketch comedy show, breaking a tie with another show stalwart, Steve Martin. Baldwin’s first appearance on ‘SNL’ was April 21, 1990.
