TV Nia Vardalos

Nia Vardalos as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley? The actress has made her pitch to ‘SNL.’

“I just need a day's notice to get to New York @nbcsnl,” tweeted Vardalos, along with an image of herself side by side with Haley for comparison.

The resemblance really is uncanny.

Over 10 hours after her first tweet she doubledowned on her intentions.

“I cleared my week @nbcsnl,” she wrote.

Many loved the idea.

Others said Vardalos is too good to play Haley.

And still others took Vardalos’ offer as a criticism of Republican women.

One Twitter user even seemed to confuse Haley for conservative commentator Dana Loesch, and attacked Vardalos for attempting to imitate her.

So, will Vardalos get the gig? Maybe ‘Saturday Night Live’ creator and fellow Canadian Lorne Michaels can help her out.

Vardalos wrote and starred in ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ and its sequel. She also developed, co-executive produced, and starred in the spin-off TV show, ‘My Big Fat Greek Life.’
