It’s a sad day for Saturday Night Live fans. The male half of Two A-Holes is following in the footsteps of his gum-chewing better half. The what? Yep, Jason Sudeikis is officially leaving SNL.
On Wednesday night, the actor and comedian appeared on CBS’s The Late Show to promote his upcoming movie We’re the Millers, co-starring Jennifer Anison. When David Letterman asked him about his long run on SNL, he made a sad announcement. “I’m definitely done,” Sudeikis said. “I’m going to leave. Yeah, I’m not coming back next fall.” This marks the end of an era for the comedian, who spent a decade on the show, first for two years as a writer and then eight as a performer. But Sudeikis looked back on his time there fondly. “It’s been really, really amazing. I was very, very lucky.”
But what will Lil’ Blaster do without DJ Supersoak? What will Jonathan Cavanaugh-san and Rebecca Stern-Markowitz-san do without their outraged Japanese Studies professor Sansei Mark Hoffman? How will we get The Devil’s hilarious take on current events?
Well, we thought SNL would have a lot of big shoes to fill after the departure of Seth Meyers, Fred Armisen and Stefon (oops, we mean Bill Hader). Now, they can add another sizeable pair to the mix.
