'SNL' alum Bill Hader plays Anthony Scaramucci: 'I'm like human cocaine'

The "Saturday Night Live" crew has settled on an actor to portray former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

The show's summer edition of "Weekend Update," hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost, premiered Thursday evening and introduced SNL alum Bill Hader as the "The Mooch" during a FaceTime call.

"Everybody loves the Mooch. I'm like human cocaine," Hader said. "You got a little bump of me, I made you feel excited, but I was out of your system too quick. And now that I'm gone, you're all depressed and edgy and you're trying to figure out how to score some more Scaramooch!"

After the success of Melissa McCarthy's rendering of former White House speaker Sean Spicer last season, speculation immediately began when Scaramucci entered the scene as incoming communications director in July. Of the names floated around was former "Sex and the City" star Mario Cantone.

After a New Yorker interview was published in which he dissed some of his White House colleagues in profane fashion, among other questionable statements, Scaramucci was kicked out of the Trump administration in fewer than two weeks.

Hader's Scaramucci quipped specifically on Scaramucci's infamous comment about White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, when he said, "I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock."

Hader said he was misquoted, adding that he actually saw Bannon do it. "He did it!" Hader said, adding that he saw it.

Scaramucci is slated to make his post-White House TV debut on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday followed by an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Monday.
