One of the great advantages of Joe Biden‘s pick of Kamala Harris for VP? We get months – possibly YEARS – of Maya Rudolph reprising her Emmy-nominated impersonation on SNL!
In fact, she learned the news that Harris has been selected while she was recording an Entertainment Weekly panel discussion with other Emmy nominees. Another panelist broke in with the update.
When asked what she thought of the pick, she told EW:
Then the enormity of what it means to HER, hit.
“Oh s—. Ruh-roh.”
As for the likelihood that she’ll reprise her turn as Harris on SNL:
“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. Ever since I was a kid truly I wanted to 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.”
So there you have it! Four to eight years of Maya back one SNL! The future feels better already!
