A GOOD OLD FASHIONED ORGY

JASON SUDEIKIS (ERIC) is currently in his sixth season as a cast member on NBC‟s venerable show "Saturday Night Live.” Sudeikis worked for two years as a writer on the show before becoming a series regular in 2005. He has won over audiences with his impersonations of Vice President Joe Biden, "American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks, and the hip-hop dancer recurring character in the "What Up With That” sketch. Jason was recently seen starring opposite Owen Wilson in the Farrelly Brothers film "Hall Pass” which was released by New Line on February 25, 2011. Sudeikis stars as "Fred” in the comedy about two friends who are granted "a week of freedom” from their wives, and find out that it‟s much more than they bargained. Christina Applegate and Jenna Fischer also star in the film.

Jason will next be seen starring opposite Jason Bateman and Charlie Day in the New Line film, "Horrible Bosses,” which will be released on Friday, July 8, 2011. Directed by Seth Gordon ("Four Christmases”), "Bosses" centers on three friends who frustrated by their jobs, come to the conclusion that the only solution is to kill one another's bosses. The film also stars Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey.

Jason‟s film credits include: "The Bounty Hunter,” in which he starred alongside Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler; New Line‟s, "Going the Distance” in which he starred opposite Drew Barrymore and Justin Long; and "What Happens in Vegas” with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher. Additional film credits include; "The Ten”, "Watching The Detectives,” "Bill,” Semi-Pro,” and "The Rocker.”

Jason has received rave reviews for his arc on NBC‟s Emmy Award- winning show "30 Rock.” Jason has appeared in 12 episodes (to date) as Tina Fey‟s charmingly funny love interest, "Floyd.” Jason can also be heard portraying the voice of two principle characters on Fox‟s hit animated comedy series "The Cleveland Show” by creator Seth MacFarlane. Sudeikis also guest-starred on, "It‟s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” as the long-forgotten fourth member of the Paddy‟s gang, Schmitty, who the gang tries to bring back in.

Sudeikis was born in Fairfax Virginia but grew up in Overland Park, Kansas. After high school, he received a basketball scholarship to a local junior college. As a class clown and a self admitted "procrastinator,” he frequently dribbled himself in and out of trouble while in college. He began his path in show business by driving 40 miles every weekend to take classes at the Comedy Sportz Theater (now Comedy City) in Kansas City. At that point, he left basketball and college and made his way to Chicago where he performed with The Second City National Touring Company, Improv Olympic, The Annoyance Theater and Boom Chicago in Amsterdam. He then moved to Nevada where he became a founding member of The Second City Las Vegas. In 2003, while still in Vegas, Jason was encouraged by his uncle George Wendt ("Cheers”) to send a tape of his work to the producers of SNL. Jason started on the show as a staff writer, and after two years and many auditions, he found himself on camera and never looked back.

Jason is actively involved with The Children‟s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City as well as other charities. He currently resides in New York City.
