Donald Trump had better brace himself — "Saturday Night Live" has a chosen a new comic to portray the billionaire developer in its scathing sketches, The Hollywood Reporter says.

Taran Killam will don a blond wig and launch his best bluster to play the Republican presidential front-runner on SNL's 41st season.

The dashing, 6-foot-1 California native has previously portrayed Brad Pitt, Matthew McConaughey, Eminem and Piers Morgan on the NBC show.

Previously, The Donald was portrayed by SNL announcer Darrell Hammond.

Killam has also sharpened his acting chops in various hit movies, including "12 Years a Slave," "Ted 2" and "Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult."

A father of two, Killiam is the great-nephew of actor Robert Stack, who played mob-busting G-man Eliot Ness on TV's "The Untouchables." He is married to Canadian actress Cobie Smulders.
