Jim Carrey Will Play Joe Biden on ‘Saturday Night Live’ Season 46, and Jason Sudeikis Fans Are Not Happy

Published

Not the political recast America was expecting! Jim Carrey is set to take over the role of presidential candidate Joe Biden on Saturday Night Live during season 46, and the news has left fans of the actor’s predecessor Jason Sudeikis in shambles.

NBC announced the switch-up on Wednesday, September 16. “There was some interest on his part,” executive producer Lorne Michaels told Vulture of Carrey, 58. “And then we responded, obviously, positively. But it came down to discussions about what the take was. He and [head writer and cast member] Colin Jost had a bunch of talks. He and I as well.”

Sudeikis, 44, portrayed Biden, 77, during his time as vice president, which coincided with the comedian’s turn as a cast member. The Horrible Bosses star left the sketch comedy show in 2013 after 10 seasons but returned on several occasions to reprise the role once the politician entered the 2020 presidential race. Woody Harrelson also played the Democratic nominee during season 45.

Fans expressed their concern via Twitter on Wednesday after the casting news broke. “They should just bring back Jason Sudeikis,” one person wrote. “His Biden was great.”

Another user tweeted, “Jason Sudeikis army… we riot at dawn,” while a third viewer complained, “Oh good god, no. What’s wrong with Jason Sudeikis? Unpopular opinion, but [Carrey] is terrible with comedy & impressions. Overdoes everything.”

Jon Favreau, former speechwriter for President Barack Obama, weighed in too: “I’m so angry about this, I was sure they’d bring Sudeikis back.”

Alec Baldwin and Maya Rudolph will reprise their roles as President Donald Trump and Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, respectively, leading up to Election Day on November 3.

Saturday Night Live also announced the addition of three new cast members: Lauren Holt, Punkie Johnson and Andrew Dismukes. The show will resume production with a “limited in-studio audience” and air five consecutive new episodes to kick off the season.

The series’ most recent in-studio show took place in early March as the coronavirus pandemic spread. The cast, all of whom will return for the new season, starred in three pre-recorded episodes from home after the production shutdown.

Season 46 of Saturday Night Live premieres on NBC Saturday, October 3, at 11:30 p.m. ET.

Thirty and Thriving! See Photos of ‘Counting On’ Star Jana Duggar’s Style Evolution From 2004 to Now

Published

Like a fine wine, Jana Duggar keeps getting better with age! The gorgeous Counting On star — who turned 30 in January 2020 — has come a long way from boxy schoolgirl uniforms to chic dresses and trendy hats.

That said, she still tends toward the conservative. Back in 2013, mom Michelle Duggar explained the reasoning behind the famous family’s modest dress code.

“After I was born again and became a Christian, I really began to cover up. I felt like the Lord was saying to me, ‘You know what, you probably shouldn’t be wearing that. It’s a little bit low cut, or a little bit too high, you know?’ I just really felt like I needed to obey what God was saying to me first and understand later,” the former cheerleader said during a TLC Q&A. “And then I saw in the scriptures a lot of things that helped me understand why I was feeling uncomfortable with my previous clothing choices.”

It seems like Jana followed in her famous mom’s footsteps, opting to cover up rather than show off. In August 2019, the reality babe was caught Photoshopping two strangers in the background of her photo, who clearly didn’t meet the Duggars‘ modesty standards.

“Wow … [You] altered this photo to make the girls behind you have modest clothing on,” accused one commenter. “I noticed that, too,”‘ responded another. “It’s amazing how the standard for girls [are] ridiculously high while ‘boys will just ‘be boys.’” A third added, “Don’t think people are blind enough to fall for your joke of a Photoshop. If you can’t handle the clothing that other people wear, then stop going out in public. Or at least just crop them out of your picture instead of indirectly shaming and disrespecting them.”

These days, however, Jana appears to have loosened up a bit. She recently rocked heels on the ‘gram and (gasp!) even donned a pair of pants.

See model Jasmine Tookes’ $250K engagement ring from fiancé Juan David Borrero

Published

Jasmine Tookes’ engagement ring is just as beautiful as she is.

The Victoria’s Secret model, 29, announced on Thursday that her boyfriend, Snapchat’s Juan David Borrero, proposed with an enormous 7-carat engagement ring.

“Si, mi amor!,” she captioned a photo of the oval-shaped sparkler. “We’re engaged!!!”

The rock is a custom design by Ritani, according to People, that features a 7-carat oval-cut diamond set in 18K yellow gold with a hidden halo and diamond-embellished prongs. The ring is reportedly valued at more than $250,000.

The couple has been dating since 2016, and Borrero popped the question this week after whisking Tookes away on a surprise trip to Utah, per Vogue. While contemplating a grouping of rocks that formed the letters “WYMM” — short for “will you marry me” — the fairytale proposal took a high-tech spin.

“As I was processing this, I heard a drone flying from above which had a string hanging from it with a small black pouch below. This is how the ring was delivered to him. As the drone approached, he reached into the pouch pulled out the box and went on one knee,” Tookes told Vogue. “I was in complete disbelief and immediately burst into tears because this was something I did not expect. After lots of happy tears, I obviously said yes, and this was honestly the best day I could’ve ever imagined.”

The question that remains is whether fellow model-and-Snapchat-exec couple Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel will be maid of honor and best man, respectively, at Tookes and Borrero’s upcoming nuptials in the groom’s hometown in Ecuador.

Actor Tom Cruise And Director Doug Liman Are Currently Scheduled To Depart Earth Aboard A SpaceX Crew Dragon Spacecraft At October 2021

Actor Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman are currently scheduled to depart Earth aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft at October 2021.

 

 

Actor

The assignment is allegedly associated with an upcoming movie,

though specifics are relatively scarce.

SpaceX was open to the notion of space tourism but has yet to launch a paying client into space.

Should you dislike the celebrity Tom Cruise, I have got some superb information for you.

If you adore actor Tom Cruise, I also have some excellent information for you.

Believe it or not, it’s the same news: SpaceX has agreed to shoot Mr. Cruise into space! Hooray for everybody!

If you’re a Cruise hater, then you’ll be glad that he will not be on planet Earth for a while,

but if you happen to be a lover, you’ll be very happy to hear he’s moving into area with director Doug Liman and (likely)

a co-star so that they can scope out and possibly even film some scenes for a new movie.

That is pretty awesome.

The entire issue has been considered a”tourist assignment” for SpaceX.

The company has been bullish on the idea of generating revenue from flying private

(and very wealthy) people into space for whatever reasons they desire.

However, in this case, it’s to get filmmaking.

In the helm of this boat will be Michael López-Alegría, a true veteran of spaceflight Actor

and a guy who holds a set of documents for spacewalks.

As Space Shuttle Almanac reveale on Twitter, the flight is anticipate to occur in October 2021, which is more than a year away.

That means a few items, but the most important to notice is that there is a long time for those plans to alter.

This wouldn’t just be the first time a SpaceX”tourist” flight was declar and then never took place,

but the fact that the mission will incorporate work on a film would appear to give it a bit more weight.

We’ll have to wait and watch.

Whether the assignment is just one of many for the film or if it’s merely an educational trip for the actor

and director to guarantee realism for an upcoming flick is unclear.

Whatever the situation,Actor

as a result of the lengthy timelines of all Hollywood productions, we probably will not be seeing the fruits of their labour for some time.

In any case, it’s cool that SpaceX is receptive to”tourist” missions,

but as we’ve yet to see you get off the gro.Actor
