Alec Baldwin makes small
money playing Trump on SNL
isn't making big
league money to
play Donald Trump
on Saturday Night
As the 58-year-
old actor revealed
in an interview with
the New York Times
published Tuesday, he
earns just US$1,400
While it takes Bald-
win just seven minutes in the makeup chair to
transform into the president-elect, the actor
knows that portraying Trump goes far deeper
than donning his signature hair.
"I see a guy who seems to pause and dig for
more precise and better language he wants to use,
and never finds it," Baldwin noted of Trump's
speech pattern. "It's the same dish --- it's a grilled
cheese sandwich rhetorically over and over again."
While Baldwin works on mastering the
70-year-old's mannerisms, he's also been spar-
ring with the future president on Twitter. Since
Baldwin's first appearance on October 1, Trump
has slammed both the Long Island native and
the show. (AP)
