Sean Spicer, the former White House press secretary, wants to appear on "Saturday Night Live," according to Us Weekly.

"He is asking people about getting on — it was his idea!" according to an insider.

"He asked someone he knows that is close to a cast member to help him. Yes, he criticized 'SNL' before, but he's changed his tune. He wants to make a cameo," the insider told Us Weekly.

The NBC comedy show spoofed Spicer in four sketches, in which actress Melissa McCarthy played Spicer. She was nominated for an Emmy Award nomination for the skits.

Spicer has been mixed with his reactions to McCarthy's skits. After the first one in February, Spicer said it was "funny."

Then in July, after he resigned from the press secretary job, Spicer expressed his dissatisfaction with the skits during an appearance on Fox News' "Hannity."

"I think that there were parts of it that were funny, but there's a lot of it that was over the line. It wasn't funny. It was stupid, or silly, or malicious," Spicer said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In February after the 'SNL' skits began, sources told Politico that President Donald Trump was not happy with the spoofs and was unnerved that a woman played the press secretary.
