Jim Carrey Is Joe Biden in Saturday Night Live Season 46

Published

on

Jim Carrey is heading to Saturday Night Live. The Dumb and Dumber actor has been tapped to portray former Vice President Joe Biden on season 46 of the long-running sketch comedy series. Jason Sudeikis had previously played the role back when he was a cast member. The news was confirmed by series creator Lorne Michaels recently.

Lorne Micheals, who serves as an executive producer of Saturday Night Live, recently sat down for an interview to discuss the upcoming season, which will kick off just ahead of the upcoming election. Joe Biden is the Democratic nominee, who is running against Republican incumbent Donald Trump. During the interview, Michaels revealed Carrey will be joining the cast to play Biden. Here’s what Michaels had to say.

“There was some interest on his part. And then we responded, obviously, positively. But it came down to discussions about what the take was. He and Colin Jost had a bunch of talks. He and I as well.”

Though never an official cast member, Jim Carrey has hosted SNL several times over the years. Carrey is also no stranger to sketch comedy, as part of In Living Color early in his career. Some of Carrey’s recent roles include his Showtime series Kidding, as well as Sonic the Hedgehog.

Alec Baldwin is expected to be back as Trump in the upcoming season, with Maya Rudolph also likely returning as Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate. While a chunk of last season consisted of home-produced shows, Lorne Michaels confirmed that SNL will return with in-studio shows that will have a limited audience. Michaels had this to say about it.

“We need the audience, obviously. With comedy, when you don’t hear the response, it’s just different. With the kind of comedy we do, which quite often is broad, timing gets thrown off without an audience. And for me, what is most important is when you’re absolutely certain of some piece on Wednesday, and then the dress-rehearsal audience sees it on Saturday and tells you you’re wrong…”

“I think us coming back and accomplishing the show will lead to, I hate to use the word normalcy, but it’s a thing that is part of our lives coming back, in whatever form it ends up coming back. So the physical problems of doing it, number of people who can be in the studio, number of people who can be in the control room, how you separate the band so that they’re not in any jeopardy, all of those are part of the meetings we’ve been having.”

It has not yet been revealed just how limited the crowds will be in the studio but it is expected to be small, as most late-night talk shows are still proceeding with no audience. The entire core cast will be back for the upcoming season. The series has also added three new cast members including Lauren Holt, Punkie Johnson and Andrew Dismukes. Saturday Night Live is set to premiere on October 3. This news was first reported by Vulture.

Lala Kent and Randall Emmett Announce Baby’s Gender in Epic, Slightly Insane Reveal

Lala Kent and Randall Emmett’s impending baby sure knows how to make an entrance.


Before he or she is even born.


On Saturday, the vetern Vanderpump Rules star and her fiance, who announced last month they were expecting their first child together, revealed this child’s gender.


In rather unique fashion.


The 30-year old did so by sharing footage on Instagram of a skydiver touching down from above in a pink parachute.


So there we have it, huh?

“We are having a baby GIRL!” the Bravo personality wrote as a caption to the video.


Emmett, who is the dad to two daughters of his own (10-year-old London and 6-year-old Rylee) from a previous relationship, shared the same footage.


And sounded equally psyched about the little girl to come.


“WE ARE HAVING A GIRL!!!” he wrote.

In the footage, a skydiver, who was attached to a pink parachute and large pink ribbon, lands on a grass field just as Lala, Randall and their friends cheer and applaud.


“Oh my god!” Lala said, prior to embracing Randall, who then exclaimed, “I told you!”


The podcast host was joined by several of her Vanderpump Rules co-stars and acquaintance for the breaking news, including former star Stassi Schroeder.


Stassi, who is also pregnant and expecting a baby girl herself, posted a video of Lala’s memorable reaction to the gender confirmation.


“We have little baby girls coming! I hope they do better at life than us,” wrote Schroeder along with this clip on her Instagram page.

Give Them Lala


Later in the day, Kent shared a photo on her Instagram Story of a sign that read as follows:


“Give them a girl…with Lala & Randall. I’m in love with you already, and I can’t wait to be your mama.”


Kent and Emmett announced they were expecting earlier this month on an episode of their podcast, Give Them Lala … with Randall.


“I’m, like, shaking right now because I can’t believe that it’s a real-life thing. I cry about everything but today it’s very much happy tears,” said Kent at the time.

“For my 30th birthday I have the best gift given to me, my body also helped out too, I am pregnant,” she then revealed before cheers were heard in the background and Emmett shouted:


“Lala Kent, a soon to be mother!”


A clearly overwhelmed Lala then added:


“I am and I’m so excited. I feel very maternal and motherly.”

Lala Kent Smiles


The reality TV star and her producer boyfriend have been dating since 2017.


They got engaged in September 2018 and battled through numerous break-up rumors before dropping their huge baby bombshell.


The pair were going to get married this past April, but then Covid-19 hit and, well…

Lala Kent at Sundance


“We have decided to move the date of our wedding to July given the unfortunate circumstances of what is going on,” they previously told People Magazine in an exclusive statement.


“We are obviously saddened by this but for the ultimate safety of our families and guests, we have made the decision to wait and see how everything progresses.


“Safety will always be our number one priority.”

Aimee Mann – “Avalanche” (Leonard Cohen Cover)

Published

Aimee Mann covered Leonard Cohen’s “Avalanche” for the theme music of HBO’s I’ll Be Gone In The Dark. The show is a documentary about Michelle McNamara, the true-crime author (and Patton Oswalt’s wife) whose posthumous book of the same name detailed her investigation into the Golden State Killer. McNamara died in 2016 of an accidental overdose on prescription meds compounded by an undiagnosed heart condition, and the Golden State Killer was finally caught in 2018 — thanks in part to her research.

“My husband, Michael Penn, and I had been close friends with Patton and Michelle for many years and were very familiar with the ups and downs of her research,” Mann says. “We were completely devastated by her death. I was incredibly moved by Patton’s dedication to getting her book finished and was so happy when he reached out about recording a version of ‘Avalanche’ for the show. Michael produced and recorded it at home, and we were both honored to hear it at the start of every episode.”

We already posted about Mann’s cover of “Avalanache” when I’ll Be Gone In The Dark premiered, but the show only used a brief excerpt of the track in its opening credit sequence. Now, though, Mann has released her full version of the song, and you can listen to it below.

Earlier this week, Demi posted and deleted some scantily clad pics and spoke about her love life in the caption of the post. It’s unclear if Instagram deemed her pics too racy for the platform or if she wasn’t ready to be so open with her fans.

“She’ll love when she’s ready 🧡,” she captioned her post.

The caption makes it seem that she is not currently looking for love and that she is focusing on herself and we think that is the best thing to do. In fact, that’s when love strikes! Her followers were quick to let her know that she has options.

”I’m ready to love,” one impressed fan commented while another said, “A thriving, happy, beautiful queen👑 i love it 💗.”

“My forever crush 💖✨🌸,” a third follower wrote. “in love with your style🔥🌷.”
