Is Saturday Night Live losing another fan-favorite castmember?
Following Bill Hader's announcement that he was leaving the long-running NBC sketch comedy and Fred Armisen's send-off during the season finale, it seems as though Jason Sudeikis will also not be returning to SNL next season, if a tweet from castmate Jay Pharoah is any indication.
"Hader, Armisen & Sudekis the talent of those three and just them as people in general will be missed but we will be strong and carry on," Pharoah tweeted on Sunday before deleting the message.
When we chatted with Sudeikis on the red carpet at the premiere of Epic on Saturday, he played coy about his future on SNL, saying, "I'm not thinking about it yet."
Executive producer Lorne Michaels recently addressed Sudeikis' potential exit, as well as Armisen's, in an interview with The New York Times, saying, "I've said what I wanted to say to both. You never keep anybody there who doesn't want to be there, and there is a right time to leave, but it's more about where they are in their lives."
(E! and Saturday Night Live are a part of the NBC Universal family.)
