Tina Fey Returning to 'SNL'? You Betcha!

The '30 Rock' star will head back to late night in April

Tina Fey will be back on the Saturday Night Live stage in April, when she returns to host the show that she called home for nine years (during which she became the first female head writer in SNL history).

The question on everyone's mind is if Fey will reprise her role as former Alaska governor Sarah Palin -- whose looks and mannerisms Fey perfected when she dropped by as a special SNL guest during the 2008 presidential campaign.

"It's inevitable that we'll try it, at least," Fey, 39, told the Associated Press. "We'll see if it makes it to air."

While Fey was being coy with curious fans, a rep for NBC refused to be pinned down, saying, "SNL generally doesn't discuss any planned sketches, given that much can change even in the hours before show time."

As dead-on as her original impersonation of Palin was, the Emmy winner did say that she got a lot of flack for her portrayal.

"People started projecting politics onto me," Fey told Vogue in this month's cover story. "There are people who hate me now because of that ... It was scary to be in that world of politics. I felt uncomfortable to be in that discussion. The weird thing is, when Darrell Hammond or Will Ferrell or Dana Carvey did an impersonation of a president, no one assumed it was personal, but because Sarah Palin and I are both women and people think women are meaner to each other, everyone assumed it was personal."

Fey's appearance on SNL will coincide with the opening of her new movie, Date Night, which also features The Office star Steve Carell.
