Sudeikis portrayed Biden for years, returning as recently as April to play the former vice president's "personal space" issues. But just like with Donald Trump, a skewering new impression was needed for presidential candidate Biden. Enter Harrelson, who reprised his Biden from the season premiere on this weekend's SNL. "Sudeikis’s impression couldn’t square that circle—it’s too friendly and affectionate a performance, one rooted in the image of Biden as a lovable and harmless grandpa," says David Sims. "Harrelson’s Biden is glossy and spiky, flashing a set of eerie pearly whites and speaking in nonsensical truisms."
