Jim Carrey has been impeached.
The comedian will no longer play President-elect Joe Biden on “Saturday Night Live.”
“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,” Carrey tweeted on Saturday. “I would love to go forward knowing that Biden was the victor because I nailed that s–t. But I am just one in a long line of proud, fighting SNL Bidens!”
The 58-year-old LA resident temporarily moved to New York to play Biden on the long-running sketch comedy show, according to The Wrap.
“SNL” has sporadically aired live, in-studio episodes during season 46, despite the pandemic.
“Thank you to Jim Carrey for showing up when it mattered,” the “SNL” Twitter account posted in response to Carrey’s news.
Maya Rudolph has played Vice President-elect Kamala Harris since last season, when “SNL” mocked the democratic primaries.
A new Biden may be seen on tonight’s show, which airs at 11:30 p.m. Kristin Wiig will host with Dua Lipa as the musical guest.
During the Obama administration, Jason Sudeikis portrayed Biden. Woody Harrelson and John Mulaney have also played the soon-to-be prez, though only when they’ve hosted the show.
Alec Baldwin, who has played President Trump for years, said goodbye to the character after Trump lost the election.
