Alec Baldwin says his Donald Trump impersonation on “Saturday Night Live” is still winning, so “Yeah, we’re going to fit that in.”
CNN reported that the 59-year-old actor is busy this fall so will keep the number of Trump impersonations to a minimum — “which means SNL fans will be treated to ‘a couple celery sticks’ rather than a ‘whole meal’ of blonde wigs and orange bronzer.”
In March, he said that he wasn’t sure he would keep playing Trump because he felt the audience couldn’t take much more of it, CNN said.
Host of “SNL” a record 17 times, Baldwin was praised at a roast Sunday night at New York City’s Apollo Theater by Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore, Tracy Morgan and Horatio Sanz for his Trump impression.
“You get a little bit older and you think, ‘Do I want to work right now?'” Baldwin was quoted as saying. “For me the question is not what do I want to do [it’s] do I want to do anything? Do I want to work? I don’t need to work. Do I want to work or do I want to just take it easy and smell the roses or do something else?
“When I decide I want to go to work I look at what’s out there and pick something that’s the best that’s available to me.”
His latest movie, “Blind,” begins screening July 14.
