Fauci has become the face of America’s will to fight the coronavirus pandemic, as he is a person who has openly criticized President Trump’s inability to act at the start of the virus outbreak, when he had claimed that this virus will not be a threat to Americans. As such, many have come to see him as America’s Doctor. So, it isn’t improbable that SNL may choose him for the latest skit.

That’s why he was asked the question on whether, first of all, he would even like to be portrayed, and if he did, by whom. Fauci told the reporters that he hopes not, but if he were to be included in the skit, he would prefer to be portrayed by Brad Pitt. It only makes sense – Brad Pitt, as we all know, has been twice named the “Sexiest Man Alive”.

This famous stand-up comedian and actor who has profiled himself for roles in wacky and hilarious comedies, often not of high quality, but great charm, is nowadays a favorite face, which when appears evokes nostalgia. Yet many wonder where is Rob today?

Unfortunately, he has disappeared slightly from the public eye, and although he still makes films, you will hardly be able to see him on the big screen of a movie theater. He records low budget and less known titles, so it can be rightly said that his movie era has ended.

Today, he can be seen on small screens in his Netflix sitcom “Real Rob”. The show follows his everyday life, including his wife and daughter.

Schneider became the father of the girl Elle King in 1989, whom he got from a relationship with the model London King. His daughter followed her father’s steps and became an actress, but in the first place, she is a singer and a songwriter.

Rob Schneider got married for the first time in 2011 to Mexican actress and television producer Patricia Azarcoya Arce. The couple has 7-year-old daughter Miranda.

Macdonald is a man who does not have any interest in pleasing anyone. Although he believes that cost him his job on SNL, he would do it all over again and stayed true to himself. We hope to see more of him and wish him the best of luck.
