Jay Pharoah is Officially SNL's New Obama
It was rumored when he joined the show two years ago, but Lorne Michaels just confirmed that Jay Pharoah (who is actually black) will taking over President Obama duties from Fred Armisen starting this weekend. Here's Pharoah doing his Obama impression, along with some of his other specialties. Michaels also told the New York Times that Jason Sudeikis is returning to play Mitt Romney and Joe Biden and he's leaning towards Taran Killam for Paul Ryan. I'm still holding out hope for Kate McKinnon as Jennifer Granholm.
