Jim Carrey to make his SNL debut as Joe Biden this week


NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” released a first-look on Thursday previewing actor Jim Carrey in full makeup to portray Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The teaser marks the debut for Carrey playing as the former vice president on the weekend late-night show.

The promotional video released on social media shows a montage of preparation as Carrey and SNL alumna Maya Rudolph suit up — putting on hair pieces, checking watches and lacing up Converse sneakers to play the former vice president and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.). 

Rudolph first debuted as Harris on “SNL” in 2019, scoring praise from Harris herself.

“SNL” returns this weekend, October 3. The return marks the first “limited” live studio audience present for premiere taping.
