(Newser) – Rosie O'Donnell is already posing as Steve Bannon—on Twitter. O'Donnell, who has expressed interest in playing Donald Trump's aide on Saturday Night Live, changed her profile photo on the site Thursday to a Photoshopped image of her face on Bannon's body. It was initially shared by artist Jonathan Smith, reports Vanity Fair, which argues it's nearly perfect, but only nearly: O'Donnell's face was simply swapped for Bannon's in a photo taken of him at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, and her "smooth complexion doesn't really match" Bannon's features.

After the switch, George Takei tweeted, "Oh, a thousand times, yes. If there is a God, please let this happen," per ABC News. One petition to have O'Donnell appear as Bannon on SNL has more than 5,000 signatures. Slate has come up with a list of 12 actresses who could play Trump's inner circle on SNL if so asked; see its photo gallery here. (Read more Rosie O'Donnell stories.)
