If Saturday Night Live wanted to do a skit with Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, there's only one guy he’d want to play the part: Mario Lopez.

In an interview with conservative WTMJ host Charlie Sykes on Wednesday, the GOP candidate said, unlike his contender Donald Trump, he hasn't been asked to host an SNL episode.

"No, they haven’t called me to host it," Rubio said during the show. "I couldn’t host it. I don’t live in New York, and I’ve got a campaign to run."

But that doesn’t mean the Florida senator doesn’t have SNL dreams.

"I just want to make sure whoever plays me in one of the skits is someone who does it well. Maybe Mario Lopez is someone they should look into," he added.
