Bill Murray makes surprise 'SNL' appearance as Steve Bannon

Bill Murray turned up in this weekend's cold open, portraying Trump's former chief strategist in a "Morning Joe" parody.

In the skit, Armisen shares one of the stories that didn't make it into the final cut of his book.

The two were there to discuss the Trump White House in SNL's version of Morning Joe, with Armisen, as Wolff, highlighting some of the more lurid, and questionable portions, of his controversial book. "Someone would put a bowl of goldfish crackers on the other side of the room and Trump would say '$1,000 on the black one'".

Worse was Lonzo's response - "I can play for anyone" - or was it just low-key Lonzo being Lonzo? I knew Joe from Philadelphia, where I covered him as a young player.

The star-studded segment included Bill Mjurray as Steve Bannon as well as Fred Armisen playing "Fire And Fury" author Michael Wolff.

Saturday Night Live returned from its holiday hiatus with a bang. And you liked it, you had fun?

When asked if that was true, Armisen's Wolff replied, "Yeah".

Next came Bannon, at first in SNL's typical portrayal as a Grim Reaper, then pulling back the hood to reveal Murray, his face blotched with red and using a voice closer to his old Nick the Lounge Singer than Trump's estranged guru.

"OK that does sound like me", Murray's Bannon concluded.

Lest things get too slimy, Leslie Jones arrived as Oprah ("I though I smelled lavender and money", said Mika), proclaiming herself a sort of anti-Donald - "I'm actually a billionaire". Wolff wrote in a column for The Hollywood Reporter: "The nature of the comedy, it was soon clear, was that here was a group of ambitious men and women who had reached the pinnacle of power, a high-ranking White House appointment - with the punchline that Donald Trump was president". "I'm a celebrity so I'm qualified", said Jones as Winfrey before adding that there's only one job in the world more powerful than president and that's being Oprah.
