‘Saturday Night Live’ Unveils First Look at Jim Carrey as Joe Biden (VIDEO)

Jim Carrey and Maya Rudolph - SNL 46

Saturday Night Live returns for Season 46 on Saturday, October 3, and for its big in-studio premiere, the NBC sketch comedy series is going political.

As the 2020 presidential election heats up, Jim Carrey is joining the mix as Joe Biden and SNL is giving fans a sneak peek at his transformation in a newly-released promo. Announced in mid-September, Carrey’s take on the former VP is one of many political figures likely to pop-up in Studio 8H this season.

Maya Rudolph will reprise her role as vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, and the funny lady takes her spot alongside “running mate” Biden in the teaser. Returning this Saturday, October 3, SNL‘s 46th season will kick-off with former cast member Chris Rock taking the lead as host.

The actor, who is currently starring in Season 4 of FX’s Fargo, is joined by musical guest Megan Thee Stallion who is making her SNL debut. They both show up in the promo for the season premiere, donning masks on the iconic SNL stage.

In the political teaser, a rack of clothes hints at Alec Baldwin‘s return as Donald Trump and cast member Beck Bennett’s turn as Mike Pence. Don’t miss the hilarity when Saturday Night Live returns this weekend on NBC, and catch the promos featuring the stars above and below.
