'Joe Biden' Meets His Cool Jason Sudeikis Self On 'Saturday Night Live'

·1 min read

Remember when Joe Biden was fun?

“People used to like me. The press would call me Uncle Joe,” Biden (played by James Austin Johnson) recalled wistfully on the cold open of “Saturday Night Live.”

In walks cool Joe, played by Jason Sudeikis, just the way the “SNL” alum used to play him.

“I’m you from eight years ago, man, the ghost of Biden past — boo!” Sudeikis tells Johnson.

“How can you be me?” Johnson asks. “You seem so happy, so carefree, so ... what’s the word I’m looking for?”

“Lucid!” Sudeikis responds. “Yeah, partner, where I’m from, we’re still VP.  Easiest gig in the world. We’re like America’s wacky neighbor, you know. We just pop in with an ice cream cone, some aviator shades, do some finger guns ... loosen up, Buddy. What happened to us, huh? We used to be fun, right?”

Sudeikis’ Biden counsels as he give his future self a back rub: “I hope this doesn’t sound sexist, but you gotta smile more, sweetie.”

OK, so maybe they’re from “different eras, but at the end of the day we’re both Joe freaking Biden!” declares Sudeikis.
