SNL Returns October 3rd With New Actor Playing Joe Biden

Season 46 of Saturday Night Live will kick off on October 3rd. The cast will return the studio for the first time since the pandemic forced the show to broadcast from their homes. The cast remains unchanged from last season with the exception of who plays Joe Biden. For many years, he's been played by Jason Sudeikis. This season, he will be played by Jim Carey. According to Vulture, Carey reached out to Executive Producer Lorne Michaels about the possibility. Election season always seems to provide the show with great material so this should be fun.

Donald Trump will continue to be played by Alec Baldwin.
