Chris Christie

"In the first episode of my third season, Amy Poehler hosted and Katy Perry was the musical guest – sorry, I'm a big nerd about the show – and we did a sketch about The Expendables. At that point, somebody said, 'You're going to play Governor Chris Christie.' And I said, 'I have no idea who that is!' I'm very bad with politics. Somehow that went away and I ended up playing Hurley from Lost. Then once Christie started getting more notoriety, everyone said, 'We should have you play him.' I've played him a couple times now and he's really nice. He actually sent my mom and dad a letter – that was a class act. But playing a President is currency at SNL, so I hope he runs for President and wins for my job security. My contract runs out next year, so if he announces his run that'd be wonderful."
