'SNL' says the real Romney is 'considering' an appearance

Jason Sudeikis as Mitt Romney on 'SNL'; Mitt Romney on the campaign trail.

Mitt Romney may take a turn on "Saturday Night Live."

The sketch-comedy show has had a field day satirizing the former Massachusetts governor. In March, the comedy powerhouse had some fun with the Romney sons and the most recent episode showed a bar full of failed GOP candidates chummily crooning to Romney as the presumptive nominee.

And while Jason Sudeikis has handled the gig of portraying the contender thus far, 'SNL' executive producer Lorne Michaels said he has put out an invite to the actual Romney to appear. 

Romney is "considering it," according to a New York Times interview with the show's writers

Though the show would love a visit from Romney they said he's not quite the gift horse Sarah Palin was to the show when actress Tina Fey famously depicted the “mama grizzly."  

"Sarah Palin was a once-in-a-lifetime situation,” head writer Seth Meyers told the Times' Maureen Dowd. “She was incredibly magnetic and came with a built-in catchphrase.”

Romney’s taken a ribbing, but a guest spot on the show could give him a chance to hit back a bit while poking fun at himself.
