Jason Sudeikis’ only connection with movies was his maternal uncle, actor George Wendt. The family moved to Kansas when Sudeikis was a child. He started his career as a comedian at ComedySportz in Kansas City. The upbringing in Kansas helped Sudeikis to a great extend to mold his career as a popular comedian. With the newfound confidence and popularity from the success at ComedySportz, Sudeikis moved to Chicago to join the famous ImprovOlympic. The young man soon landed a major role in the Second City’s National Touring Company and went on to become one of their most popular comedians.
Sudeikis’ breakout success at the Second City’s National Touring Company put him in the radar of the ‘Saturday Night Live’ producers. In 2003, he joined ‘Saturday Night Live’ as a writer, which was a fruitful partnership that lasted for more than a decade. He forayed into television in 2007 with the popular comedy show ’30 Rock.’ The Cameron Diaz comedy ‘What Happens in Vegas,’ the online show ‘The Line’ and the voice role in the popular video game ‘Grand Theft Auto IV’ soon followed. In 2010, Sudeikis emerged as one of the most popular comedians of his generation with back-to-back titles like ‘The Bounty Hunter,’ ‘Horrible Bosses’ and ‘Hail Pass.’ His other major works include ‘Eastbound and Down,’ ‘Horrible Bosses 2,’ ‘Colossal,’ and ‘Mother’s Day.’
Though Sudeikis has delivered numerous outstanding performances in his long career, the actor is still revered for his unforgettable ‘Saturday Night Live’ episodes. He started his random appearances in the show when he was a writer in the mid-2000s. He used to turn up as an audience member in between the host monologue routine every week. He left the cult television show in July 2013 and returned as a guest star in the years 2015, 2016 and 2019. So now you might be wondering what is the next Jason Sudeikis movie or TV show? Well, here’s the list of upcoming Jason Sudeikis films and TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020.
