Posing as the airline pilot of the flight he was kicked off of last week, Alec Baldwin apologized to himself on "Saturday Night Live."
Appearing on the show's "Weekend Update" segment, host Seth Meyers introduced the "pilot" of that flight, Captain Steve Rogers, who of course was Baldwin.
"It was awful, Seth," he said in a rumbling Southern accent when Meyers asked him to describe the incident. "Which is why it was very important for me to come here and on behalf of everyone at American Airlines, to issue an apology to Mr. Alec Baldwin."
Questioning the obvious ploy, Meyers asked, "Alec, are you sure this is the right way to handle this?"
"Yeah keep going!" Baldwin insisted. "Mr. Baldwin is an American treasure, and I am ashamed at the way he was treated! What harm would it do to let him keep playing his game, not any game mind you, but a word game for smart people!"
Referencing the airline's serious financial trouble, he added: "We're bankrupt, how dare we speak ill of the great Alec Baldwin?"
When Meyers asked about reports that Baldwin slammed the bathroom door of the plane so hard it could be heard from the cockpit, the "pilot" responded knowingly: "'Words with Friends' can be frustrating," he said, referring to the online game Baldwin was playing.
Asked again whether he was sure this was an appropriate way to handle the situation, Baldwin said, "Seth I'm not Alec -- but I wish I was, that man's a hero! A smart hero!"
