4 Reasons Why Chris Kattan Should Play Anthony Scaramucci On SNL

If you didn't know who Anthony Scaramucci was before, you do now. 

The former American financier who was nicked named "The Mooch," Scaramucci was named on Friday as President Donald Trump's newest White House Communications Director. Sean Spicer resigned from press secretary after Scaramucci was named. 

The director has made headlines during his first week in the White House for playing teacher's pet to Trump on live T.V., even apologizing for saying something about him while he was working for another candidate. 



“I’m going to be working for you,” he told the president via television on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And I’m going to serve the American people. And we’re going to get your agenda out into the heartland, where it belongs.”


He also came under fire for his already infamous "hair and makeup" comment in regards to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. 

It started off nice. 

"I think Sarah does a great job. She’s an incredibly warm person, she’s incredibly authentic,” Scaramucci said on CNN. “I want to do everything I can to make her better at that podium. I think she’s phenomenal there now, but like every athlete that’s training for the Olympics, every day we got to make ourselves incrementally better.”

He then went on to say.  

"The only thing I ask Sarah — Sarah, if you’re watching — I loved the hair and makeup person that we had on Friday, so I’d like to continue to use the hair and makeup person.”


Ugh. He went on to correct himself much like our current president, via Twitter. 

Thank you for the clarifying hashtag, Scaramucci. I almost thought you were being serious. 


Now the director is blowing up on Twitter for a different reason; #humor. 

People think former Saturday Night Live cast member Chris Kattan should come back to the show to play Anthony Scaramucci. Here are five reasons they're totally right: 

1. Well, they look alike. 

I mean, c'mon. Their resemblance is uncanny. 


Everything from their jaw-line to their ear shape to the way they smile is similar. It's like when Tina Fey just HAD to play Sarah Palin. They look way to much like brothers or at least cousins for it not to happen.

2. We miss Chris Kattan. 

We had Chris Kattan for a gloriously funny seven years on SNL, where he impersonated everyone from Alanis Morrissette to Clay Aiken to Andy Dick to Steve Irwin. 


We've been living without a classic Chris Kattan impression, and we're owed another one. 

3. Scaramucci's behavior will make for some great skits, let's be real. 

The guy already has a knack for having personal conversations with his boss and fellow employees via television talk show. The brains at SNL have already begun to spin their wheels about skit ideas. 


Also, his nickname is Mooch. Just take that and run with it. 

4. Chris kind of needs this. 

About 14 years ago, he broke his neck while working, and it took four surgeries and a change in career path to properly fix it. 


He didn't open up about it until he went on "Dancing With The Stars." 

"Part of what I used to do was physical comedy, but now I can't," Kattan shared. "It's really sad when somebody says, 'I miss the old Chris.' That sucks to hear."

Playing this role could really mean a lot to Kattan, who's obviously missed making people laugh. And it would mean a lot to us too. 

You listening, Lorne Michaels?! This idea is genius!
