Alec Baldwin may be taking his Trump show in the road.
In the best gig the actor’s had in some time to attract attention, Baldwin is reportedly in talks to expand his parody of President-elect Donald Trump beyond the confines of “Saturday Night Live.”
“I’m gonna do [‘Saturday Night Live’] as much as I can and there’s discussions about other venues we might pursue to further express our gratitude and admiration for the Trump administration,” the volatile actor told ABC News.
In an attempt to downplay the much coveted relevancy the role delivers among his left-wing friends, as well as the influence liberal-dominated pop culture has on politics in America, Baldwin claimed he does it for fun.
“It’s a type of thing that’s purely for entertainment,” he said. “We’re not really influencing anybody’s political opinions here. We’re here just to have a good time and tell some jokes and have it be silly and fun for late at night, or later at night.”
“It’s turned out to be one of the most fun things I’ve ever done. I love it.”
It certainly helps that Baldwin knows he gets under Trump’s skin each time he reprises the role.
