Margaret Cho wants in on the 'Saturday Night Live' action as Ben Carson

The casting director for Saturday Night Live should just take the week off.

Like Rosie O'Donnell, who said she was up for playing President Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon on NBC's sketch comedy show, Margaret Cho has volunteered to play Ben Carson, the nominee for secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

The Fashion Police co-host shared that she has been "practicing how to hold full conversations while sleeping," in preparation for the opportunity which may or may not come her way. O'Donnell tweeted her support writing "Yo cho – they call – we show" followed by three red heart emojis.

Hey @Rosie...also @nbcsnl do you need someone for Ben Carson, I've literally been practicing how to hold full conversations while sleeping. pic.twitter.com/EP33GTFR8m

Only time will tell what this weekend's show, hosted by Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin, has planned.
