'SNL' Hires Alec Baldwin for Season Finale
Alec Baldwin is again returning to "Saturday Night Live" and this time he gets the coveted spot. The actor, who had run the show 14 times before, announced to a group of reporters at White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday, May 1 night that he will be hosting the season finale.
That would be the episode airing May 15, one week after Betty White makes her debut as a host of the show. The last time Baldwin was seen on the show was during 2009 Valentine's day celebration where he did a sketch with the Jonas Brothers. In one of the skits, he acted as a long-lost sibling of the brothers.
At the event, Baldwin also shared his view about presidency and the chance of him taking part in the political world. "We want to announce right now, we are running for President and Vice President of the United States," Baldwin said to Access Hollywood with his arm around "30 Rock" co-star Tracy Morgan.
