Robert De Niro Appears as Robert Mueller in 'Saturday Night Live' Cold Open

Sunday, 09 December 2018 06:03 AM

Robert De Niro made a surprise appearance as special counsel Robert Mueller in "Saturday Night Live's" cold open.

De Niro popped out of a closet in a sketch that skewered President Donald Trump and the mounting legal pressure Mueller's investigation has put on many of Trump's associates. Alex Moffatt played Eric Trump in a bedtime-story setting, with Mikey Day as Donald Trump Jr. delivering a reading to his brother of "Twas the Night Before Christmas."

De Niro's Mueller showed up to pressure Eric Trump into participating with his investigation of the 2016 presidential campaign and allegations of collusion with Russia among members of Trump's campaign staff.

"It's just me, Robert Mueller, your dad's friend from work," De Niro's Mueller told Moffatt's Eric Trump.

Jason Momoa, star of Warner Bros.' upcoming DC Comics adaptation "Aquaman," hosts tonight's episode, which features musical guest Mumford and Sons.
