JASON SUDEIKIS (Stewart) is currently in his fifth season as a performer on NBC’s venerable “Saturday Night Live,” winning over audiences with his gum-snapping, hilariously self-absorbed recurring character in “The Two A-Holes” (alongside Kristen Wiig) and bumbling thief character Ed Mahoney, as well as his outrageous, spot-on impressions of Rod Blagojevich, Vice President Joe Biden and “American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks.
Sudeikis is currently in production in Atlanta on the Farrelly Brothers’ new film Hall Pass for New Line. Sudeikis will star opposite Owen Wilson in the comedy about two guys that are granted “a week of freedom” from their wives, and find out that it’s much more then they bargained. He will also star in Warner Bros.’ Going the Distance which stars Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, and in the independent feature A Good Old Fashioned Orgy.
His other film credits include What Happens in Vegas, The Rocker, Semi-Pro, Watching the Detectives, Bill, and The Ten. His voice may be heard in two roles on Fox’s “The Cleveland Show.”
Sudeikis also received rave reviews for his multiple episode arc on NBC’s Emmy award winning “30 Rock.” He was also a frequent guest on NBC’s “Late Night With Conan O’Brien.” He has been featured among young comedians to watch in Vanity Fair, and has made Entertainment Weekly’s Must List for “The Two A-Holes.”
In 2003, while performing with the Second City Las Vegas, Sudeikis was encouraged by his uncle George Wendt (“Cheers”) to send a tape of his work to the producers of “SNL.” Before becoming a cast member, Sudeikis started on the show as a staff writer. After two years, he found himself on camera and never looked back.
