SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE -- "Margot Robbie" Episode 1705 -- Pictured: (l-r) Colin Jost and Michael Che during Weekend Update on October 1, 2016 -- (Photo by: Will Heath/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images)Sean Spicer may be out as a regular "Saturday Night Live" impression, but Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci is in, and you have to expect someone will make good use of his antics during the summer edition of Weekend Update. But who?

SNL finished up Season 42 in May, and Season 43 won't arrive until late 2017. But there's SO MUCH happening right now in the political world that's ripe for parody, so Weekend Update will return in August to cover it all:

It's possible Melissa McCarthy will return for a goodbye Spicey sketch, but there are new players to consider, including The Mooch. Who should play him?

White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci Interviewed By Television Reporter At The White HouseFans are dream casting now, with the top candidates appearing to be Ben Stiller (who was briefly an SNL player in 1989), Joe Pesci, and Mario Cantone.

Cantone isn't exactly a household name, but he just played Scaramucci on Comedy Central's "The President Show," so that might help his case: Other fans have suggested Chris Kattan or Charlie Sheen.

It was also just announced today that Trump replaced Chief of Staff Reince Priebus with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, so those are two more potential SNL players to cast. It should be a busy summer for political satire, if nothing else.
