Jim Carrey revealed he’s leaving behind the Joe Biden impressions he gave ‘SNL’ viewers on Dec. 19 and we’ve got EXCLUSIVE details on what’s being planned next.
Jim Carrey, 58, shocked fans when he shared the bittersweet news that he’ll no longer be playing the role of President-elect Joe Biden, 78, in upcoming skits on Saturday Night Live, but also promised there is “a long list” of contenders ready to take his place. The comedic actor impressed viewers with his portrayal of Joe, who will soon be the 46th President of the United States, during the show’s first six episodes of the 46th season, but his role was always supposed to be limited and SNL creator Lorne Michaels is already considering other talented actors to step in next.
Though my term was only meant to be 6 weeks,I was thrilled to be elected as your SNL President…comedy’s highest call of duty. I would love to go forward knowing that Biden was the victor because I nailed that shit. But I am just one in a long line of proud, fighting SNL Bidens!
