Jim Carrey is going on tiptoe with Alec Baldwin on “Saturday Night Live”
; – because it will be the new show Joe Biden going to elections.
Showrunner and EP Lorne Michaels made the announcement Wednesday … also sharing that Alec will return as President Trumpand so it would be Maya Rudolph, who played a hilarious version of Kamala Harris the last time.
But on Biden, who he was played by Woody Harrelson is Jason Sudeikis recently – Lorne told Vulture they would probably give Jim a chance … with the conditions, apparently.
He says, “There was some interest on his part. And then we responded, of course, positively.” He adds that there were caveats, explaining … “But, it was all about arguments about what the take was. He and Colin Jost had a lot of arguments. So did he and I. He’s going to give the part energy and strength, and … [Laughs.] Hope it’s fun. “
Interestingly, Lorne wanted to understand how Jim would play the former Veep. The last time “SNL” tricked him … they often made Biden look rambling, outlandish and a little creepy with his touchy sensibilities.
You have to wonder what the outcome will be now … with the new coronavirus pandemic backgrounds and Biden being the Democratic candidate.
We will find out on October 3 when the new season debuts.
