Alec Baldwin’s SNL Promo (video)


Alec Baldwin is getting ready to host Saturday Night Live for the 17th time, but the rest of the show’s cast members don’t really seem to care all that much.

There are isn’t another celebrity out there who has hosted Saturday Night Live as many times as actor Alec Baldwin. Now, the 58-year-old is gearing up for his 17th appearance as the host of SNL this Saturday.

Baldwin has been making appearances on SNL all season with his hilarious portrayal of president Donald Trump in multiple cold opens. However, now Baldwin will have an entire show to work with the staff to do some other sketches, although we can expect plenty of Trump jokes in the process.

For this week’s promo, Baldwin got a little over dramatic by talking about how important Studio 8H is to him while making it seem like he hasn’t been back to the set in years. Vanessa Bayer had to remind him that he has been back multiple times, including yesterday. You can watch the whole promo in the YouTube video below.

Baldwin’s 17 times hosting are more than anyone else, with the only other celebrities hosting 10 or more times being Buck Henry (10), John Goodman (13) and Steve Martin (15). Tom Hanks is the next closest with nine times hosting SNL.

The 58-year-old has done an outstanding job with his Trump impersonation this season, but the possibilities are endless with what he could do on Saturday. Last Night On is hoping for a sketch making fun of Trump with a parody trailer for the hit Netflix series House of Cards, but I’m sure whatever the SNL cast comes up with will be hilarious.
