Live from a Dallas Private School, It's ... Barack Obama on SNL? Maybe.
Tina Brown's Daily Beast reports that four contenders are in the running to oust Fred Armisen as Saturday Night Live's Barack Obama -- and two of them, heyheyhey, happen to be Dallas private schools graduates.

The other local is Greenhill School grad Jordan Carlos, who showed up on FrontBurner today, where Zac makes mention of his ESPN Web shorts.
