Jay Pharoah Confirms Jason Sudeikis's 'SNL' Exit on Twitter

While it was officially announced last week that Bill Hader and Fred Armisen were leaving Saturday Night Live following this weekend's season finale and each of them received their own goodbye sketch, Jason Sudeikis is expected to depart too but the news isn't official yet. Fellow cast member Jay Pharoah revealed via Twitter yesterday morning that Sudeikis is leaving, writing "Hader, Armisen & Sudekis the talent of those three and just them as people in general will be missed but we will be strong and carry on.." Pharoah quickly deleted the tweet after posting it, which is a little weird, but it's archived on Favstar where it will live forever as proof that this weekend's season finale was Jason Sudeikis's last episode of SNL.

    Is it possible he deleted it because Sudeikis is staying, do you think? I'd like for Sudeikis to get a sendoff sketch or something.

      I was thinking the same thing. There are a few weeks left for a contract negotiation after the season aren't there? Maybe he was mistaken.

        Yeah, but mad props to Splitsider for getting the jump on this story on EW who referenced Splitsider in their story on this. Sweet!

    I saw Sudeikis in the closing hugging Hader and Fred and that looked like the We are all leaving hug. Also he was in shades and hugging everyone pretty hard it seems.
