Jason Sudeikis is Looking to Leave ‘SNL’ Shortly

In April, we reported that Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg were all likely to be leaving ‘Saturday Night Live‘ at the end of its season. Wiig and Samberg have already told the world they aren’t returning, and it looks like Sudeikis is about to file his two week notice.

Currently Sudeikis is promoting ‘The Campaign‘, which opens Friday, and told the Los Angeles Times that “I’d like the opportunity to use creative muscles that … haven’t been asked of me for the first nine years that I’ve worked there.” He’s also coming off of a hit movie with last summer’s ‘Horrible Bosses’ and will be in the upcoming ‘We’re the Millers,’ so his career is in pretty good shape. The hang-up is that he plays both Vice President Joe Biden and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on the show, and those character will have a lot of exposure in the months and years ahead.

Of course multiple people have played different presidents, both Phil Hartman and Darrell Hammond played Bill Clinton, but that job is definitely ripe. We wouldn’t put much hope in Sudeikis returning, and it’s possible that he waited a couple weeks like Samberg did to space out the departures. What this also means is that ‘SNL’ will surely be adding a couple new faces to its cast this year.
