Jason Sudeikis leaving 'SNL' cast

July 25th, 2013 in News

NEW YORK (AP) - After eight years on the air at "Saturday Night Live," Jason Sudeikis says he's calling it quits.

Sudeikis used another late-night institution to make his announcement, telling David Letterman in the taping of Wednesday's show that he's leaving NBC's weekend program. Sudeikis had a busy election year on "Saturday Night Live," portraying both Republican Mitt Romney and Vice President Joe Biden.

Sudeikis told Letterman that his time on the show has been "really, really amazing."

It's an exodus of male cast members at "SNL." Both Fred Armisen and Bill Hader previously announced they were leaving the show. Seth Meyers will be replacing Jimmy Fallon on his late-night talk show when Fallon moves up to the "Tonight" show.
