Jim Carrey will be playing Joe Biden in 'Saturday Night Live'!

By Rachelle  /  17 Sep 2020 (Thursday)

Rubber-faced actor Jim Carrey has been tapped to play the Democratic nominee and former vice president Joe Biden in the upcoming 46th season of Saturday Night Live (SNL).

The variety series will return just in time to mock the 2020 presidential election when it debuts on October 3. It will premiere with five consecutive episodes leading up to the election on November 3.
  The casting of Carrey is a surprising choice considering that he's not a part of the cast and that former cast member Jason Sudeikis is known for playing Biden. However, SNL has been bringing outside talent to play characters more and more over the last four years. This includes Robert de Niro as Robert Mueller, Brad Pitt as Dr. Anthony Fauci and, of course, Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump.

There has been no confirmation yet but it is highly likely that Maya Rudolph will be returning to do her impression of Biden's running mate, Kamala Harris.
