The idea of Goldblum's casting came thanks to his starring role in the 1986 flick The Fly, in which he played a scientist who begins to transform into a giant man/fly hybrid after one of his experiments goes wrong.
"Jeff Goldblum has to play the fly on SNL right?" one person questioned.
While Goldblum may get a new gig thanks to the fly on Pence's head, the current vice president's opposition -- Joe Biden and Kamala Harris -- have already received a leg up after the bug encounter.
The Biden-Harris campaign started selling $10 fly swatters shortly after the event, all of which read, "Truth over flies." The item has since sold out on the campaign's online shop.
Biden also urged his Twitter followers to "pitch in $5 to help this campaign fly," and advertised a new domain, flywillvote.com, which redirects to iwillvote.com, a website that helps people register to vote.
