Maya Rudolph returning to SNL, Barack Obama next?

last weekSaturday Night Liverumors

Whatever the case, former SNL cast member Maya Rudolph is officially a done deal to appear on the show this weekend, appearing as Obama's inamorata, Michelle. (Mad Men star Jon Hamm is hosting, with Coldplay as the musical guest). New York Magazine's Vulture blog tossed out the idea of a skit with Rudolph as Michelle and Kristen Wiig as Cindy McCain, to which we say: bring it on.

Rudolph's return comes just a day after Will Ferrell showed up on SNL Weekend Update Thursday to reprise his former role as George W. Bush, in a skit that included Darrell Hammond as McCain and Tina Fey (her, again) as Palin.
