Tina Fey plans to take on Sarah Palin again when she returns to 'SNL' Saturday
When Tina Fey returns to “Saturday Night Live” to guest host on April 10, she’ll apparently be reviving one of her most popular impressions. Fey told Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper that she expects to portray former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in another sketch.
“I’m sure we’ll be trying to write something about her,” Fey said during an interview to promote her new movie, “Date Night.”
A spokeswoman for “SNL” said she could not confirm which sketches were in the works, noting that it was a live program subject to change.
Fey’s devastating take on the onetime GOP vice presidential nominee was one of the standout memes of the 2008 presidential contest, culminating with a guest appearance on “SNL” by Palin herself.
The writer and actress said she’s been too busy working on “30 Rock” to pay much attention to Palin in recent weeks, but the former Alaska governor has offered her fans and critics plenty of fodder. She joined former running mate John McCain on the campaign trail, debuted a new show on Fox News and signed a deal to star in a docu-series about Alaska that will air on TLC.
