It’s definetly a reality Jason Sudeikis has finished his run on’ “SNL”. The funnyman comedian openly admitted last night, with Dave Letterman on Wednesday’s CBS’s “The Late Show”. Jason saying to Dave, “I’m going to leave. Yeah, I’m not coming back next fall.” Going on to say, “It’s been really,really amazing,” he says of his time on SNL. “I was very, very lucky.”
Jason Sudeikis sudden exit creates an impact on funnymen, which will cause a mass casting crisis at ‘Saturday Night Live’, this close to the fall season. Sudeikis departure from “SNL” will be heartfelt. after all he offered fine impressions of high-profile figures like Joe Biden and Mitt Romney.He was brilliant expertly played the flustered straight man as the frustrated TV anchorman to Bill Hader’s burned out old reporter in streets.As the southern-fried catfish-out-of-water judge of “Maine Justice” Sudeikis also showed an ability to mine laughs, while playing out his ability to play total pure silliness.
The newbees, Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah already have seemed like a star in the making for quite some time now; that’s why this coming season could be the year they really comes into their own. And since they came on board, Bobby Moynihan and Kenan Thompson have been solid players.Proving the remaining second-tier of male cast members on this show that are no slouches either.
Sadly even though he missed receiving a standing ovation at the end of the season last May like Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, who signaled their departures when the 38th season concluded. Jason, was a extremely talented and strong willed “SNL” performer who eventually emerged as the soft spoked backbone of the show during the last eight years of the program’s 38-season run. Meanwhile, Seth Meyers is expected to leave in early
2014 after a 12-plus-season run, as he takes over “Late Night” for “SNL” alum Jimmy Fallon, who is headed for “The Tonight Show.”
Because “SNL” has such a broad ensemble, you might figure the series could sustain their losses. Long-timers Bill Hader, Fred Armisen and Seth Meyers were featured attractions on this show. Any one of them leaving at any time is problematic; all together, it’s big trouble.“SNL” has weathered its fair share of cast defections over its long run but this is a huge talent drain for the franchise to suffer all at once.
Regardless,with his considerable leverage, Jason would have had in negotiations with “SNL” Dictator…aka…Producer, Lorne Michaels. This late before the new season would be desperate to pay up to keep some semblance of sure stability, for ratings. On his part, ole Jason as a lot in his career corner, because Sudeikis, 37, has been in the SNL cast for eight years, and was a writer on the show for two years before that. On a personal note the lucky stiff is engaged to actress Olivia Wilde, professionally his work on “SNL” has helped him launch a successful movie career. He shined in the 2011 ensemble dark comedy “Horrible Bosses,” And hit the ball out of the park in “Hall Pass” with Owen Wilson has been one of his best films so far,Jason stars next in “We’re the Millers”, opposite Jennifer Aniston with whom he’s recently work with before.
Jason Sudeikis, now admits he’ll have to find a new outlet for his comedy ideas now. “You start to get that itch probably in August, where all these sketch ideas will show up,” he says. “And I’ll be like, ‘Well, can I make this sketch idea last 90 minutes and turn it into a movie?’ Hmm..Probably not.” But hopefully,he’ll be back on “SNL” next season to say that belated goodbye, at least as a guest host. One things for sure, his fan’s all wish him the very best!
