Saturday Night Live: Jim Carrey To Play Joe Biden

As an Irish poet once wrote: Turning and turning in the widening gyre/The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart;/the centre cannot hold;/Jim Carrey will one day play Joe Biden on Saturday Night Live

Yes, according to Vulture, prolific comedic actor Jim Carrey will portray current Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden for the show’s upcoming 46th season. 

“There was some interest on his part,” executive producer Lorne Michaels said. “And then we responded, obviously, positively. But it came down to discussions about what the take was. He and [head writer/cast member] Colin Jost had a bunch of talks. He and I as well.”

Carrey won’t be taking away a job from anyone on the existing SNL cast in portraying Biden, as the former vice president was embodied by former SNL castmember Jason Sudeikis last year. Michaels confirmed that Alec Baldwin will return to play President Donald Trump and Maya Rudolp will return to play Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris. Depending on how SNL approaches current Vice President Mike Pence (who has traditionally been played by Beck Bennett), 75-100% of the presidential nominee tickets will be made up by non-SNL castmembers.
