With Joe Biden running for US president, NBC’s live sketch-comedy series Saturday Night Live needs a celebrity to play him.  Actor-comedian Jim Carrey has gotten the role, Saturday Night Live announced on Wednesday. 

“There was some interest on his part, and then we responded, obviously, positively,” SNL producer Lorne Michaels told Vulture. “But it came down to discussions about what the take was. He will give the part energy and strength, and hopefully, it’s funny.”

Previous celebrities to play the former vice president include Jason Sudeikis, Kevin Nealon, John Mulaney, and most recently actor Woody Harrelson.
