Jason Sudeikis: I'm leaving 'SNL'
The Devil, Joe Biden, and the last remaining A-Hole are officially exiting SNL.
In a Late Show interview that will air on CBS tonight, Jason Sudeikis confirmed what most fans of the show had already assumed: that after 10 years, his time on NBC’s sketch show is finally coming to an end.
“A person can go as long as they want — I mean, Lorne’s been kicking butt at it for 33 out of the 38 years,” Sudeikis told David Letterman. “But me, yeah, no — I’m definitely done.”
“Really? You’re leaving?” Letterman asked.
“Yeah, I’m gonna leave. Yeah, I’m not coming back next fall,” replied Sudeikis.
Sudeikis’s announcement shouldn’t come as a shock — he spent last summer hinting that he was planning to leave the show, only to decide at the last moment to stick around for one more year.
Much like his pal Bill Hader — who announced his own SNL exit this spring — Sudeikis says he hasn’t really processed his decision yet. “You start to get that itch probably in August, where all of these sketch ideas will show up. And I’ll be like, ‘Well, can I make this sketch idea last 90 minutes and turn it into a movie?!‘” the comedian joked. “Yeah, probably not.”
Don’t speak so soon, Jason — what the world needs now is “Mitt Romney Chugging Milk: The Major Motion Picture.”
