The official Twitter account for the comedy sketch show also confirmed the news, writing: "Jim Carrey is our new Joe Biden!".

SNL will likewise begin the new season with five continuous shows on October 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31. In addition to Alec Baldwin's Trump, we now get to see Jim Carrey take on Joe Biden. Jim Carrey has signed on to step into the character of Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden. Carrey's casting for the portrayal comes as a surprise as former cast member Jason Sudeikis has often portrayed Biden in the past, as did Woody Harrelson and John Mulaney. Given his comedy chops, that's surprising, but it was In Living Color - another classic comedy sketch show - where Carrey made a name for himself. "But it came down to discussion bout what the take was". No hosts for Season 46 have yet been announced.

Apart from Baldwin and Rudolph, SNL's entire cast might return from the previous season, including stars Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, Kenan Thompson, Aidy Bryant, Beck Bennett, Michael Che, and Colin Jost.

"You'll see the same people", creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels told Vulture. "And then we responded, obviously, positively", Michaels said. "He will give the part energy and strength...hopefully it's amusing".

The 58-year-old actor, who's well known for his kind of comedy, will be seen playing Joe Biden for the first time, as revealed by the show's producer Lorne Michaels to a NY entertainment site called Vulture.

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. "There are four debates and then it's Halloween, and that's the weekend before the election", Michaels said.

SNL is also bringing on three new castmembers: Upright Citizens Brigade alum Lauren Holt, comedian and writer Punkie Johnson and longtime SNL staff writer Andrew Dismukes.
