That's Too Bad: Jim Carrey Will No Longer Play Joe Biden on 'SNL'

Joe Biden has yet to step into the White House as President, but Jim Carrey is stepping away from playing Biden on ‘Saturday Night Live.’

He took to Twitter to make the announcement.

via NYDN:

“Though my term was only meant to be 6 weeks, I was thrilled to be elected as your SNL President … comedy’s highest call of duty,” the “Truman Show” star, 58, tweeted.

And while the “Ace Ventura” comedian “would love to go forward knowing that Biden was the victor because I nailed that s–t,” he acknowledged that he is “just one in a long line of proud, fighting SNL Bidens!”

The Golden Globe winner started playing Biden in early October with the premiere of “SNL’s” 46th season and reprised the role through the sixth episode just over a month later.

Last season, Biden was played by Woody Harrelson, Jason Sudeikis and John Mulaney.

The show retweeted Carrey, adding, “Thank you to Jim Carrey for showing up when it mattered.”

Carrey’s announcement came just hours before the newest episode, to be hosted by former “SNL” star Kristen Wiig.

Jim wasn’t the first ‘SNL’ Joe Biden — but he was our favorite!
