Saturday Night Live already secured its Hillary, and now the late-night sketch series has cast its Donald.

In a teaser clip of the upcoming season 42’s premiere episode on Saturday, the longtime NBC show revealed that Alec Baldwin will play GOP candidate Donald Trump.

“The night we’ve all been waiting for. #SNLPremiere,” the official SNL account tweeted Wednesday along with the 15-second sneak peek.

As the comedic clip opens, viewers watch as Kate McKinnon is made to look like Hillary Clinton, complete with a blonde wig, tailored pantsuit and the Democratic nominee’s signature smirk.

In preparation of his role as the businessman-turned-politician, Baldwin, 58, has an orange hue added to his face in addition to glued-on white eyebrows and a Trump-looking wig secured onto his crown.

As Baldwin turns toward the camera, he purses his lower lip and squints his eyes to resemble Trump before “Trump v Clinton” splashes across the screen.

The season 42 premiere of SNL airs Oct. 1 at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
