Jim Carrey will play Joe Biden on “Saturday Night Live”.

The variety series will return on October 3rd, just in time to parody the 2020 US presidential election.

According to CNN, the series will premiere with five consecutive episodes leading up to the election on November 3rd.

Carrey is a surprising choice to play Biden considering that he’s not a part of the cast and also because former cast member Jason Sudeikis is known for playing Biden.

“SNL” however has been bringing outside talent to play characters more and more over the last four years.

This includes Robert de Niro as Robert Mueller, Brad Pitt as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump.
