Who will play Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan on “Saturday Night Live”?

It had been widely assumed that “Weekend Update” anchor Seth Meyers would have those duties given their resemblance, but that might not be the case.

When TMZ asked Meyers who will play the “SNL” version of Ryan, he replied, “I don’t know.”


The cameraman presses, “Look at you, it’s gotta be you,” to which Meyers responds, “Oh, no no… I’m too busy writing.”

“There’s a number of guys who could do it,” said Meyers, leaving open the possibility that any of the male cast members may wind up portraying the Wisconsin Congressman turned Mitt Romney running mate.
