The actor who hilariously portrayed Donald Trump on ‘Saturday Night Live’ says he loved working with Kate McKinnon, but isn’t sure yet if he will return to play Trump again. Baldwin says the role took a physical tole on him. The 30 Rock actor says he almost sprained his jaw while playing Trump from being so animated and sticking his jaw out to impersonate Trumps mannerisms.
“This is an exaggeration of his masticating every word. I almost sprained my jaw pushing my lower jaw forward to talk the way he does and say Putin,” Baldwin said. “Do I sound like him? Kind of. But I think what you get is an essence of him being very feral.” Listen to the full interview below.

We told you last week that Johnny Depp will have a cameo in ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ and will have a role in the sequel. It was unconfirmed at the time as to who exactly he will be playing in the film, but now it has been annouced that Depp’s character is no other than Gellert Grindelwald (former friend/crush of Albus Dumbledore).
“The whole principal of casting the movie was go with the best actor. Go for the most inspired, interesting, right fit for that character. And as we approached Grindelwald we thought, ‘Who’s going to take this in an interesting direction?’ In this business, it’s a weird old business. You’re brilliant one week, people are saying odd things the next, you go up and down. But no one takes away your pure talent. Johnny Depp is a real artist. He’s created several characters who have really resonated in our popular culture. He’s a really brilliant, brilliant actor. We were excited about seeing what he would do with this guy, the character. He’s fearless; he’s imaginative; he’s ambitious. We thought he would do something fun and special. So we went for him, purely on that selfish basis. We don’t care if he’s famous or not famous. We just know he’s interesting.”
If you’re a fan of the Harry Potter series, then you know just how inconic and huge this character is to the story. Do you think Depp is a good choice to play Grindelwald?
