Jim Carrey Steals the Show During SNL Parody of the Fly That Landed on Mike Pence's Head
The much-touted debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence was perfectly parodied in the October 10 episode of Saturday Night Live. While Maya Rudolph and Beck Bennett got big laughs for their portrayals of the dueling candidates, it was Jim Carrey as Joe Biden who really stole the show thanks to his transformation into the fly that landed on Pence's head.
Social media lost it when a fly landed in Pence's hair during the October 7th debate and didn't move for a long, long time. In the SNL version of the event, that fly wasn't just a common mistake. Instead, it was Carrey's Biden who, in a scene from Jeff Goldblum's 1986 science fiction film The Fly, used a teleportation machine to land an insect on Pence's hair.
Before long, Carrey's Biden delivers Goldblum's Jurassic Park speech as a fly, this time comparing Republicans to dinosaurs.

The late Herman Cain, played by Kenan Thompson, also appears on Pence's head. However, Cain did not use the teleportation machine: he was only reborn as a fly.
In an interview with Vulture, Lorne Michaels, creator of Saturday Night Live, said that Carrey came about as Biden because the liar, liar, pushed for the role.
"Obviously Woody [Harrelson] made Biden great on the first show last season," Michaels told the outlet. "Jason [Sudeikis] has done it in the past. Part of that is whoever does it has to move to New York for quarantine. So there were a lot of factors involved. But I'm thrilled that Jim is doing it . "
Michaels told Vulture that Carrey will "add energy and strength to the part," adding, "hopefully it's fun."
A political parody that somehow conveys a murderous Goldblum impression? Funny indeed.
