Jason Sudeikis Confirms That He's Leaving 'SNL'

It's official: Jason Sudeikis is leaving SNL. It's been assumed that he wouldn't be returning to the show — his upcoming movie schedule basically makes it impossible — but he confirmed his exit to Letterman in an interview that will air tonight. Sudeikis was on staff at SNL for ten years, spending his first two as a writer and the next eight in the cast. His departure follows that of Bill Hader and Fred Armisen; looks like there are gonna be some new faces in 8H next season.

Jason Sudeikis on Whether He's Leaving 'SNL' or Not: "I Don't Know"

With the departures of Fred Armisen and Bill Hader from SNL last week, their fellow longtime cast member has been rumored to be leaving, as well. Sudeikis addressed the exit talk on an appearance on The View yesterday (video below), telling Barbara Walters he feels "honored to get hardballed" by the question. "I don't know. I sincerely don't know at this point," he responded when asked if he'll be back in the fall. "I've got to deal with saying goodbye to some near dear friends that are definitely leaving and get that out of my head and go on vacation a little bit and mull it all over."

The Best of 'SNL' Season 38

It snuck up on us, didn't it? The end of SNL Season 38 brought along with it key staff changes, among them the upcoming departure of head writer Seth Meyers and the immediate departures of cast members Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, and (unofficially) Jason Sudeikis. Few people have shaped SNL over the past 8 years more than these men — Meyers with his leadership in the writers room and charm as Weekend Update host, and Hader, Armisen and Sudeikis as the cast's workhorses and loadbearing performers. Indeed, many pegged Season 38 as a "transitional year" in the wake of Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg leaving the show a year ago, [...]

The show stars Griffin Newman, Morgan Evans, and Taran Killam as people developing a movie that combines sharks and magic eye books, and the two dozen explosions Jason Sudeikis suggests may just be what the film needs.

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 [...]

Breaking Down Each Cast Member's Contribution to 'SNL' Season 38

As mentioned in yesterday's post listing our favorite moments from this season of SNL, Season 38 has been dubbed a "transitional year" by many followers of the show. After a few years of relative stability among the core cast members, stars Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg left a year ago, followed by Abby Elliott later in the summer. With the start of the new season, three performers from Chicago's improv and sketch community joined the cast: Aidy Bryant, Tim Robinson, and Cecily Strong. In the wake of Wiig's dominating presence on the show, two freshman females in particular have emerged as go-to's: Kate McKinnon, who joined the cast [...]

Fred Armisen Is Leaving 'SNL' Too, Jason Sudeikis "Probably"

Following Tuesday's news that Bill Hader is leaving Saturday Night Live, it looks like the show is losing at least one big cast member (if not two) following this weekend's season finale. An NBC source tells The Post that veteran cast member Fred Armisen is departing and that Jason Sudeikis will probably go, as well. Armisen has been at SNL for 11 seasons and Sudeikis for 8. Seth Meyers expected to leave in the middle of next season (December) to take over Jimmy Fallon's duties hosting NBC's Late Night, the show sure is losing a lot of cast members over the next few months.
