Proving to be the hero that we always knew he was, Jason Sudeikis is not shirking his attachment to television acting, despite an influx of movie roles. Sudeikis will play a recurring role in the third season of HBO’s Eastbound & Down, starring Danny McBride. Sudeikis will play Kenny Powers’ (McBride) friend. This season will return Powers and his team to their North Carolina setting.
Aside from co-headlining Horrible Bosses, which opens today, Sudeikis will reunite with (one of) the Farrelly Brothers for an untitled project in which he’ll play Batman. I am already intrigued. He’ll also be starring with Lucy Punch, Leslie Bibb and Martin Starr (who should really be way more famous than he is) in A Good Old Fashioned Orgy, in which a group of longtime friends attempt to accomplish the exactly what is described in the title. A Good Old Fashioned Orgy is set to open September 2.
