Jim Carrey will play the US presidential candidate Joe Biden at the start of the new season of “Saturday Night Live.”
This Saturday, just one month after the presidential elections in the United States are held, the political humor program of the North American country “Saturday Night Live” will premiere its 46th season.
And with the arrival of a new cycle, new characters are also incorporated.
As announced last September, actor Jim Carrey will play the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, while Maya Rudolph will play his running mate, Kamala Harris.
Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin will continue as President Donald Trump.
To warm up the engines of the new season, this Thursday the Twitter account of “Saturday Night Live” published an 18-second video in which you can see the “making off” of the transformation of Carrey and Rudolph: from the masks and wigs, even the official costumes of the people they play.
“Ladies and gentlemen … Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” reads alongside the recording.
As People recalled, Carrey has hosted “Saturday Night Live” three times in the past and appeared on the 2015 special for the show's 40th anniversary.
For his part, Rudolph has made regular appearances on the show and in 2019 debuted his version of Harris in a sketch.
Previously, the former US Vice President has been portrayed on the show by other well-known actors such as Jason Sudeikis, Woody Harrelson and John Mulaney.
The humor space, which has been broadcast since 1975, will return to the screens on October 3 with its 46th season.
