A transcript is as follows:
ALISYN CAMEROTA: [On] a much lighter note, Saturday Night Live is back this weekend, after a month of being off, what do you think the chances are that somebody will portray you?
DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: I have no idea, I hope not.
CAMEROTA: If they did, which actor would you want to play you? Here are some suggestions I’ve heard: Ben Stiller, Brad Pitt. Which one?
DR. FAUCI: Oh, Brad Pitt, of course.
