JASON SUDEIKIS (Kurt Buckman) is currently in his sixth season as a cast member on NBC's venerable "Saturday Night Live.” Sudeikis worked for two years as a writer on the show before becoming a series regular in 2005, and has won over audiences with his impersonations of Vice President Joe Biden, "American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks and the recurring hip-hop dancer character in the "What Up With That” sketch. Sudeikis was also recently seen starring with Owen Wilson, Christina Applegate and Jenna Fischer in the Farrelly Brothers comedy "Hall Pass,” about two friends who are granted a week of freedom from their marriages.

His additional film credits include "The Bounty Hunter,” in which he starred alongside Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler; "Going the Distance,” opposite Drew Barrymore, Justin Long and Charlie Day; and "What Happens in Vegas,” with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher; as well as roles in "The Fan,” "Watching the Detectives,” "Bill,” "Semi-Pro” and "The Rocker.” Later this year, Sudeikis will be seen in "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy,” co-directed and co-written by Pete Huyck and Alex Gregory.

Sudeikis has received rave reviews for his arc on NBC's Emmy Award- winning series "30 Rock,” appearing in 12 episodes, to date, as Tina Fey's charmingly funny love interest, Floyd. He can also be heard as the voices of two principal characters on Fox's hit animated comedy series "The Cleveland Show,” by creator Seth MacFarlane, and recently guest-starred on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia” as the long-forgotten fourth member of the Paddy's gang, Schmitty.

Born in Fairfax Virginia, Sudeikis grew up in Overland Park, Kansas. Attending junior college on a basketball scholarship, he was a class clown and admitted "procrastinator” who frequently dribbled himself in and out of trouble. He began his path in show business with classes at the ComedySportz Theater (now Comedy City) in Kansas City, before leaving basketball and college for Chicago, where he performed with The Second City National Touring Company, Improv Olympic, The Annoyance Theater and Boom Chicago in Amsterdam. Moving to Nevada, he was a founding member of The Second City Las Vegas. In 2003, Sudeikis was encouraged by his uncle, George Wendt, to send a tape to the producers of "SNL.” He started on the show as a staff writer and, after two years and many auditions, found himself on camera and never looked back. Sudeikis is actively involved with The Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City as well as other charities.
