Sudeikis told the LA Times that after 9-years at the late night sketch show, he may be ready to move on to the big leagues.
“You start at ‘SNL’ when you’re young and hungry, but I don’t want my pro years to be my ‘SNL’ years… This is me getting to play for K.U. or Duke or North Carolina, with pro-caliber people, but I don’t want this to be it.”
If Sudeikis does stay at Saturday Night Live, he would have a lot of material to work with since it’s an election year. But even with the promise of honing his Mitt Romney impression, Sudeikis said that the election isn’t enough to keep him at SNL.
“I’d like the opportunity to use creative muscles that … haven’t been asked of me for the first nine years that I’ve worked there… It could be some sort of title change. The least of the concerns is anything financial … It’s more having a desire to give more to a place I really believe in. To stay just for the juice of being in the public eye – of being Mitt Romney – is not enough.”
Sudeikis is currently starring alongside Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in The Campaign. He also has five movies lined up over the next year according to IMDB.
