Rosie O'Donnell Won't Be Playing Steve Bannon On 'SNL'

Unless they're trying to throw us off the scent, it appears Rosie O'Donnell won't be portraying White House strategist Steve Bannon on Saturday Night Live, despite O'Donnell being "ready to serve" in the role.

From Variety:

While there seems to be a potential wave of female performers portraying president Donald Trump’s cabinet members on the horizon, don’t count O’Donnell in just yet. Sources from O’Donnell’s camp tell Variety that the former talk show host won’t be playing Bannon on “SNL.” Reps for the NBC show declined to comment, persisting that the network doesn’t weigh in on “guest rumors.”

Who knows though? Miracles can happen.




The problem with attempting to create a Steve Bannon SNL character is that he's not really a public figure, and does not have a public persona.  Bannon is a behind the scenes strategist, and that is all.  Why do you think he is currently being portrayed as a generic grim reaper ?
