Will Fey Play Palin on 'SNL'?

Tina Fey and Sarah Palin look like they were separated at birth, and "Saturday Night Live" is taking note.


Rumors are swirling that Fey, who is busy with her own "30 Rock," will be returning to "SNL" to play the role of the GOP VP nominee, and will have to start practicing her Midwest meets Alaska accent. Is it true?

Executive Producer Lorne Michaels revealed to a reporter, "There are discussions. They are ongoing." Clearly, Michaels doesn't want to give anything away for the show's 33rd season.

We can confirm Michael Phelps is hosting the season premiere Saturday, September 13 ... with a special appearance by Barack Obama.
