Bill Murray makes surprise 'SNL' appearance as Steve Bannon

During the cold-open for last night's Saturday Night Live, which didn't actually feature the show's host for the night Sam Rockwell (more on his hosting gig here), we were brought to MSNBC's early morning chat show Morning Joe.

Later in the skit, they interview Fire and Fury: Inside the White House author Michael Wolff, played by Fred Aremstein, to ask him questions about the book's truths and inaccuracies.

Steve Bannon, who has exclusively been portrayed as the Grim Reaper on SNL, appeared to discuss Wolff's book and unveiled that he is being played by Bill Murray.

"Trump would ask to have two babies placed in his office usually of different ethnicities".

"The Bannon magic is still out there".

SNL cast members Alex Moffat played Joe Scarborough and Kate McKinnon played Mika Brzezinski.

"Yes, you did", Armisen's Wolff replied. Peeling back SNL's usual Grim Reaper hood to reveal his new form, Murray/Bannon talked about himself a bunch in the third person and protested that "no one gets the Bannon fired, no one".

Bill Murray also appeared as Steve Bannon, giving insight as to what he has going on.

Bill Murray surprised audiences on NBC's variety show on Saturday night debuting in the show's opening sketch as former Trump White House chief strategist, Bannon.

It all started not long after Donald Trump locked up the Republican nomination following his upset win over 16 other candidates in the GOP primary.

Next up on Morning Joe's guest list was Oprah Winfrey - played by Leslie Jones - and she was immediately asked whether she'll run for president. So who knows? There's only one job more powerful in the world than being president: "BEING OPRAH!"
