Marco Rubio Floats Mario Lopez As Possible SNL Impersonator

"I just want to make sure whoever plays me in one of the skits is someone who does it well."

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says Saturday Night Live should look into having former teen hearthrob and current host of Extra Mario Lopez play him.

"No, they haven't called me to host it," Rubio told Charlie Skykes on WTMJ radio on Wednesday morning when asked Republican frontrunner Donald Trump hosting Saturday Night Live. "I couldn't host it. I don't lived in New York and I've got a campaign to run. I just want to make sure whoever plays me in one of the skits is someone who does it well. Maybe Mario Lopez is someone they should look into."
