Alec Baldwin Reveals How He Transforms Into Donald Trump For ‘Saturday Night Live’

Alec Baldwin, visiting CBS’ Late Show, explained to Stephen Colbert how he gets into character as Donald Trump for Saturday Night Live.

“When I saw your Donald Trump for the first time I went, ‘Oh, thank god, somebody cracked that nut’,” gushed Colbert, who had introduced Baldwin as the person he wished was POTUS in reality, and commended the actor on having “one of the great careers of all time.”

Baldwin called “eerie” the number of people who come up to him on the street to thank him for his depiction of Trump on the NBC late-night show.

“What is your hook in; what is the thing you have to do – is it the face, the hair, is it the hands?” Colbert asked of his method.

To play the real estate developer-turned-reality TV star-turned-President, Baldwin said he needed “to make it totally a caricature.”

“You pick a few things…left eyebrow up, right eyebrow down – and shove your face out like you’re trying to suck the chrome off the fender of a car.”
