In addition to losing Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg this past year, it looks like Saturday Night Live may lose another player before the next season begins - longtime cast member Jason Sudeikis. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sudeikis revealed in a recent interview with the LA Times that he's not so sure about staying with the late night sketch comedy show despite the fact that the next season will coincide with the upcoming presidential race, and he's the go-to guy for Mitt Romney impressions.
"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 told the paper. "It could be some sort of title change. The least of the concerns is anything financial. I'm not buying a boat because of writing skits. It's more having a desire to give more to a place I really believe in. To stay just for the juice of being in the public eye — of being Mitt Romney — is not enough."
Honest confession or sly negotiation tactic? You decide!
