Now that Joe Biden has officially picked Kamala Harris as his Vice Presidential running mate, actress Maya Rudolph, is excited to reprise her character of Harris on Saturday Night Live (for which she received an Emmy nod).
According to Vulture, “Entertainment Weekly just so happened to be recording a panel discussion featuring Rudolph when the news broke. Her initial reaction? “That’s spicy.” When asked if she’d like to return to the show to portray Harris, Rudolph offered a hopeful response. “I love going to the show any excuse I can get … I just didn’t really anticipate traveling during this pandemic, but if there’s anyone who can work it out I’m sure Lorne [Michaels] has some kind of invisible helicopter that can get me there,” she said. “Ever since I was a kid truly I wanted be on any kind of SCTV, Saturday Night Live, and I can’t believe that I got to work there and I can’t believe that it’s my family still and I’m so thrilled that I got to go back. It’s my favorite place to play.”
