‘SNL’ picks new Trump: Taran Killam Donald Trump

Published: September 21, 2015

‘SNL’ picks new Trump: Taran Killam Donald Trump, Sorry, Darrell Hammond – you’re fired.OK, that’s an exaggeration. Saturday Night Live has, however, chosen a new comedian to play controversial GOP candidate Donald Trump on its upcoming 40th season: veteran cast member Taran Killam, according to Deadline.

For a full decade, former Saturday Night Live cast member Hammond counted Donald Trump among his impressive stable of impressions. And though Hammond left SNL in 2009 after a record 14 seasons, that hasn’t stopped him from making frequent guest appearances. He has brought back his well-received takes on Sean Connery, Bill Clinton and, yes, Trump in the years since. In 2014, Hammond also took on a new role as Saturday Night Live’s announcer, replacing the late Don Pardo.

Given Trump’s current spot at the top of the Republican polls, it seemed logical to assume that Hammond would step into Trump’s yooge, very expensive shoes once again this fall.
