However, cast member Alex Moffat took over in the role of Biden on Saturday evening, debuting in the show's cold open. 


It featured fellow cast member Beck Bennett as Vice President Pence receiving his coronavirus vaccination at the White House on Friday. 

"I'm sure all Americans are excited to see me, the guy who let COVID spread everywhere, get one of the first vaccines," Bennett said as Pence.
"How did you get into the White House?" he asked Rudolph's Harris.  
"I won more votes," she responded.
Then Moffat's Biden entered, wearing a walking boot and holding a cane. Bennett's Pence told him he "looked different." 
"I'm like Colonel Sanders. Every time you see me, I'm a different guy," Moffat said while playing Biden. "This time next year, I'm going to be Mario Lopez. ... Now where are the vaccines at?"
In a tweet earlier Saturday, Carrey announced he would no longer play Biden on the weekly sketch comedy series. 

"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," Carrey said.

"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!" he added.
