Jim Carrey as Joe Biden SNL has Stopped; will Anyone Replace?
Jim Carrey as Joe Biden SNL has stopped, but the question is that will anyone continue this role?
It seems that Jim Carrey has quitted playing Joe Biden’s role on SNL. He tweeted on Saturday to announce that he will no longer impersonate Joe Biden’s role, which he played during the first six episodes of the sketch comedy show’s 46th season.
“Though my term was only meant to be six weeks, I was thrilled to be elected as your SNL President…comedy’s highest call of duty,” Jim Carrey wrote on Twitter. “I am just one in a long line of proud, fighting SNL Bidens!”
Jim hasn’t appeared in SNL’s last two episodes, and neither has Alec Baldwin, for that matter, who portrayed Donald Trump over the previous four seasons, as well as the beginning of Season 46.
SNL hasn’t shared any news about the role ending or continuing. During the last episodes, former cast member Maya Rudolph had been making the impression of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
Jim Carrey as Joe Biden SNL has Come to an End
Jim Carrey’s impersonations of Joe Biden included a 13-minute opening sketch, him tousling with Baldwin’s Donald Trump, working with Rudolph’s Harris, or being supplemented by Heidi Garnder’s Dr. Jill Biden.
Jim Carrey, who lives in Los Angeles, traveled to New York City for six “Saturday Night Live” episodes.
After the election is certified and even Joe Biden selected his communications team, now is the best time for the popular series to find a new Biden. Critics haven’t been in love with Jim Carrey’s mugging-heavy take anyway.
With Biden’s four-year run as president, it would make plenty of sense to have a fixed cast member adopt the high-profile job.
“Saturday Night Live” airs at 11:30 p.m. on NBC. This week, Kristen Wiig has returned as host. Dua Lipa will be the musical guest.
Who Should Replace Jim Carry?
Now a question arises here; Who Should Replace Jim Carry?
- Jason Sudeikis?
- John Mulaney?
- Jack Nicholson?
- Or what if Leslie Nielsen was still alive?
Jason Sudeikis used to play Joe Biden’s role on SNL. Now he lives on the west coast. If Jason Sudeikis returns to play Biden, he and Wiig may also reprise their “Two A-Holes” characters. Fingers crossed.
Sudeikis is the co-creator and star of the Apple TV+ series “Ted Lasso,” a surprise hit.
John Mulaney has also previously played Joe Biden on “SNL.” Mulaney has a regular gig in the same building as “Saturday Night Live’s” Studio 8H. He is now a staff writer on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”
Jack Nicholson could have some free time on his hands if there weren’t any in-person Lakers games for the foreseeable future.
Imagine if Leslie Nielsen was still alive! With his overconfident, gaffe-prone old white guy would be absolutely the best choice for Biden.
