Mayor Bloomberg Doesn’t Watch TV

By
SNL's Fred Armisen as Bloomberg.

That's probably why his buddy Lorne Michaels didn't think to invite him to play himself in this weekend's most popular Saturday Night Live skit. However, upon learning about the episode, the mayor was willing to have some fun at his own expense — albeit in a distinctly Bloombergian fashion: After reminding the world that he is, in fact, a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild, Bloomberg assured Michaels that he'd be willing to guest star in the future. As he generously put it, "I think he’d find my agent could negotiate a rate with him he could afford to do.” [NYP]
