‘SNL’ mocks Joe Biden in Poe-inspired Halloween story
Jim Carrey played Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the Halloween-themed opening sketch of “Saturday Night Live.”
“You just married Scarlett Johansson and I just bought an electric bike. We’re both doing equally great,” Che cracked during the segment on Saturday’s Halloween show.
The newlyweds, who met when Johansson hosted “SNL,” revealed Thursday that they’d wed through a post on the Instagram account for Meals on Wheels America, a charity providing food and resources to the elderly. The post shows a picture of a Staten Island Ferry with the words “Jost Married” across the image.
Johansson’s representative Marcel Pariseau and Jost’s representative Nicole Caruso both confirmed the post’s accuracy to USA TODAY.
“We’re thrilled to break the news that Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were married over the weekend in an intimate ceremony with their immediate family and love ones, following COVID-19 safety precautions as directed by the CDC,” the caption read.
Johansson, 35, has hosted “SNL” multiple times since 2006; Jost, 38, joined the show as a writer in 2005 before becoming head writer and “Weekend Update” co-anchor.
The couple went red carpet official in 2018, linking arms and posing for photographers at the premiere of “Avengers: Infinity War,” in which Johansson starred as Black Widow.
In May 2019, Pariseau confirmed to USA TODAY that the couple got engaged after two years together.
“I just want to say that this place means so much to me,” Johansson said in her opening monologue while hosting “SNL” for the sixth time in December 2019. “I have so many friends here, and I met the love of my life here.”
