Jim Carrey‘s term as President-elect Joe Biden on Saturday Night Live has come to an end.
On Saturday, Dec. 19, more than a month after the U.S. election, the 58-year-old actor bid farewell on Twitter to the guest role he had been playing since October.
“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 wrote. “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 decision to end his role was Carrey’s choice, a source close to the show told CNN. The insider told the outlet that the actor planned to only play Biden leading up to the election, and that it would be difficult for him to travel back and forth for the show in the long term because he lives in Los Angeles and SNL is filming in New York.
