Rosie O'Donnell Will Not Play Steve Bannon on 'SNL'

Say it ain't so!

In spite of using an uncanny Photoshopped image of herself in Steve Bannon drag as her Twitter avatar, it looks like Rosie O'Donnell will not be playing the White House advisor on "Saturday Night Live."

Caught by TMZ, Rosie shook her head when asked if she would play Bannon on the show. "That was the whole impression, the Photoshop — that was it, start to finish," she confirmed.

The only reason she gave is that she is not a cast member. Reminded that Alec Baldwin, who has been playing President Trump on the show, is also not in the cast, Rosie said, "Well, he kind of is — he's hosted 17 times."

She also said she wouldn't be seen playing President Trump himself on the show, because, "Alec's too good."

So far, Bannon has been represented as a masked Grim Reaper on the long-running late-night comedy series.
