Jason Sudeikis Is "Done" With 'Saturday Night Live'

Jason Sudeikis Is "Done" With 'Saturday Night Live'

Get ready to be even sadder about the state of Saturday Night Live, because it looks like Bill Hader and Fred Armisen aren't the only two who won't return next season. In an appearance on Late Night With David Letterman last night, cast member Jason Sudeikis announced that he too would not be returning, after being apart of the show for ten years.

"I’m definitely done," Sudeikis told Letterman. "I’m not coming back."

According to Sudeikis, he was actually planning on leaving before last season, but was persuaded by Lorne Michaels to stay because it was election season, and they needed him to portray then-presidential candidate Mitt Romney in sketches. 

As sad as it is, his decision does make sense—he had been on SNL for ten years, and with his movie career steadily expanding with projects like Horrible Bosses 2 and Relanxious, there's no reason for him to be tied down to a series. Also, he needs more time to have all that "Kenyan marathon runner sex" he's been having with fiancé Olivia Wilde, because life isn't fair.
