Since President Trump announced he will not attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner in April, Alec Baldwin is ready to take his place. The actor told late night's Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday he'd be willing to reprise his Saturday Night Live parody of Trump at the event in the president's stead.
"There are people who are lobbying to play Trump at the White House Correspondents' Dinner," Baldwin noted. Asked by Kimmel if he's one of those people, Baldwin replied, "Well, I wouldn't say I'm not lobbying," agreeing with Kimmel that the gig should go to "whoever the president hates seeing do it the most."
