Dr Anthony Fauci wanted Brad Pitt to play him on SNL – and he did
During an interview with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, leading virologist and White House advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci was asked to choose who he’d like to portray him if SNL featured him in a sketch and he opted for Brad Pitt. Makes perfect sense.
Just a couple of week’s later, this happened.

Epidemiologist, Abdul El-Sayed, had this flattering take on the portrayal.
It's not Dr. Fauci who's lucky to be played by Brad Pitt, it's Brad Pitt who's lucky to play Dr. Fauci. https://t.co/UQBgBUEwrb
