A two-minute cameo during the Vice Presidential debate has fans buzzing, and Jeff Goldblum could be reaping the rewards.
During the live debate on Oct. 7, a fly comfortably placed itself on Mike Pence's head. Media outlets clocked the fly's screen time at over two minutes. Immediately fans took to social media to beg for Jeff to reprise his role as "The Fly" on "Saturday Night Live."
Jeff famously played a scientist who accidentally transformed himself into a fly-human hybrid in the 1986 film.
"I think we can all agree the winner of tonight's #VPDebate was Jeff Goldblum," one person commented on Twitter. Another said, "If SNL doesn't get Jeff Goldblum to play the fly in this week's episode, they're missing a massive opportunity." One person joked, "Awesome cameo by #JeffGoldblum in the VP debate."
"LORNE MICHAELS… I IMPLORE YOU… PLEASE… GET JEFF GOLDBLUM TO PLAY THE FLY ON @NBCSNL THIS WEEKEND!!! #VPDebate," one another person begged. Added another, "I hope they get #JeffGoldblum to play the fly on @nbcsnl this week!"
Bob Saget commented, "The Fly just got a show on Netflix. Jeff Goldblum to voice."
The Jeff Goldblum tweets came in hot and heavy, as did general tweets about the scene-stealing fly. Within moments of the debate ending, Presidential nominee Joe Biden wouldn't let the moment fly by, as he even began selling campaign-branded flyswatters.
For the record, "SNL" has not commented whether or
swat not Jeff with appear on this weekend's show.
