Saturday Night Live updates! Jim Carrey is supposed to replace Woody Harrelson as Joe Biden in the show. What is the reason behind the change in the actor in the show??? Read out the blog post to know the reason behind this change!!!
The creator of SNL has explained the reason why Woody Harrelson will be replaced by Jim Carrey:
In the upcoming season of the show, Saturday Night Live Jim Carrey will replace Woody Harrelson in the 46th Season.
Lorne Michaels, the creator of the show has explained the reason behind the change in the actor for the role of Joe Biden in the popular NBC sketch show.
On Wednesday, it was announced that the actor of “Ace Ventura” would be the latest celebrity impersonator to tackle Biden when the sketch show will return with its latest installment. Similarly, like Donald Trump of Alec Baldwin, Jim Carrey is also expected to come to the show. He would be the new go-to person for the show, especially whenever they need to poke fun at the politics of the day especially the month before an election.
Jim Carrey will be playing the role of Joe Biden that was performed by Woody Harrelson in the last season which was Season 45 of the show.
What Woody Harrelson said about this???
Woody Harrelson told that he was approached many times to do the show but he was not ready for the commitment that the show takes. He was not able to give the show commitment and time every week which was required to be the part of the show. He said that it would be probably good if Lorne has moved on and has begun to find out the people who would be committed to the show and would actually show up every week to be the part of the show. Because he doesn’t know whether he will always be available and would be able to be the part of the show but he is open to doing the show again if it will be possible in the future as it is fun to do it.
