Saturday Night Live satirizes the Democratic debate in a old open skit. David plays Bernie Sanders, while Baldwin plays Jim Webb. Hillary Clinton and Lincoln Chafee are played by SNL regulars McKinnon and Mooney. Anderson Cooper is played by Rudnitsky. David (as Sanders):
I don’t have a super PAC. I don’t even have a backpack.
Fallon talks to David about his Broadway debut play, Fish in the Dark, and why dogs don’t like him on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Dogs don’t care for me, I got bit twice. Leaped up took a chunk out of my ribs.
I had a dog once, he behaved like my kids and my wife did, no reaction.
David plays Nathan Floom, who loses his job in the marketing department at an electric car start-up company. He later moves to Martha’s Vineyard and takes on another identity as Rolly DaVore and seeks revenge on his former boss. Kate Hudson, Jon Hamm, Liev Schreiber and Michael Keaton also join him in this comedy drama. David mentioned that the actors came up with their own dialog.
Ninety percent of actors love to improvise. Everybody just took to it so easily.
David is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Himself on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
