In a teaser released Thursday, Carrey and Rudolph are shown getting into character as Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris. In the teaser, the actors are shown putting on hair, makeup and costumes before smiling and staring at the camera.
Carrey was announced last month to be the next actor to take on the role of the former Vice President. Carrey marks the third person to play Biden on SNL this year. Woody Harrelson and former castmember Jason Sudeikis — who portrayed the former vice president during much of the Obama administration — played Biden in sketches during season 45.
Alec Baldwin is also expected to continue playing Donald Trump in sketches this season.
SNL is set to open its season this weekend with five straight weeks of live shows, beginning Oct. 3. Chris Rock is set to host the season premiere with Megan Thee Stallion as musical guest.
Though the series did a few remotely produced shows at the end of last season due to the onset of the novel coronavirus pandemic, this season will be different. For this Saturday’s show, the cast and crew will return and perform in front of a live audience in Studio 8H. However, they will abide by a myriad of safety protocols.
