What's the secret to being a lanky white guy playing the most influential (and richest) African-American woman in television history? If this SNL sketch from April 9 starring Mike O'Brien is any indication, the answer is to not try to act black, or like a woman, or even like Oprah. Just hang out and be a white guy who also happens to be Oprah. Don't be weird about it. Just be yourself—because isn't that what Oprah taught us? This could have gone wrong in so many ways, but instead it's oddly charming and delightful.
