Bill Murray Stars as Steve Bannon on 'SNL' Cold Open

Bill Murray Stars as Steve Bannon on 'SNL' Cold Open

Steve Bannon, who has exclusively been portrayed as the Grim Reaper on SNL, appeared to discuss Wolff's book and unveiled that he is being played by Bill Murray.

The book features Bannon's scathing comments about Donald Trump Jr calling his meeting with the Russian lawyer during the 2016 presidential election campaign as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

Saturday Night Live returned to Global TV after a month-long hiatus, and it was no big surprise to see the show's first cold open of 2018 borrow much of its material from the fallout from the release of the tell-all book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

The episode hosted by actor Sam Rockwell - who just won the Golden Globe for his performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missoouri - got off to star studded start with Bill Murray popping up as Steve Bannon in a spoof of Morning Joe.

The sketch featured Kate McKinnon as Mika Brzezinski, Alex Moffat as Joe Scarborough and Mikey Day as Willie Geist.

Armisen's Wolff was asked about something shocking about Donald Trump.

'There were baby races. He chose to share a story about 'Baby Races. "Someone would put a bowl of goldfish crackers on the other side of the room and Trump would say '$1,000 on the black one'".

Then Murray chimed in as Bannon revealing the other projects he has in pipeline after being fired from White Hosue and later leaving Breitbart. He also plans to sell wrinkled barn jackets called Frumpers for guys and a spring skin care line called Blotch. Logan Paul. Martin Shkreli. "It's time for America to slide down the Bannon-ster", he chortles.

But the kicker was a special satellite interview interruption by Leslie Jones as Oprah. "Donald. and I can do it again", he threatens. There's only one job in the world more powerful than being president: "Being Oprah!".
