Maya Rudolph received a cryptic text about Kamala Harris from ‘SNL’ boss

Maya Rudolph says she has not yet received a call from Lorne Michaels to return her Kamala Harris impression to “SNL” – but she did receive a cryptic text.

When asked by The Hollywood Reporter the comedian, 48, when she heard from her former boss Michaels after the Democratic vice presidential candidate was announced, she said, ‘He sent me a GIF of myself, like Kamala, in sunglasses, nipping a cocktail and said, ‘Oh no.’ That really made me laugh. ”

Rudolph was on “Saturday Night Live” from 2000 to 2007, and she has since returned to impress the California senator. Most notably, she returned to the show on Sept. 28, 2019, to do her Harris release for “SNL’s” spoof of the Democratic primary debate.

When Harris, 55, was announced as Joe Biden’s choice for his running mate on August 11, social media immediately began approaching Rudolph.

“The real winner today is Maya Rudolph,” Roxane Gay tweeted, while others posted Rudolph’s GIFs like Harris.

Since leaving ‘SNL’, Rudolph, who has collaborated with ‘Phantom Thread’ filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson, has appeared in a wide variety of films and TV shows, including ‘The Good Place’, animated comedy ‘Bless the Harts’ ‘, Amazon’s high concept shows “Forever”, and movies like “Bridesmaids” and “The Emoji Movie.”

Rudolph told THR that she’s on uncharted territory for what playing Harris could mean for her return to “SNL” when she is no longer a cast member.

“Over the years, I’ve had to see people come back and forth, but I’ve never been in a position like Alec Baldwin – who does not even work there, but is there every week,” she said. ‘I do not know what this means. I do not know what the hell will happen – and no one else. ‘
