Jason Sudeikis is a funny man with big plans.

During an interview with Modern Luxury Manhattan magazine, the comedic actor discussed some of his upcoming projects, along with falling in love with the "sweetest woman I've ever known," and, of course, the rumors about whether or not he's leaving Saturday Night Live.

"You never really leave that place, and it never leaves you," he said of the long-running NBC sketch comedy show, "It's an emotional journey getting through a season, much less the final one."

Hmm, was that our answer?

"That first Tuesday night, I'd feel phantom anxiety, my fingers just moving, typing like this, whether I was in front of a computer or not," Sudeikis told the mag on what it would be like missing September's first SNL writing session while air-typing.

Regardless, the actor will be plenty busy with his upcoming films and projects. Oh, and wedding planning with one gorgeous woman named Olivia Wilde.

The adorable pair got engaged in January after dating (and living together) for a little more than a year. Jason and Olivia are often spotted out and about in New York City, whether it be walking their dog Paco or just sharing a steamy kiss, seemingly unaffected by their celebrity.

Sudeikis also credits his slimmer figure and healthier lifestyle to his leading lady, telling the magazine, "Being happy, and in love, for me, was the secret. I feel like I returned home to myself as an individual through the process of falling in love with the sweetest woman I've ever known." Awww!

The We're the Millers star also dished on his upcoming wedding, sharing that they're shooting for a date sometime in the next year and are currently seeking out a location that will be convenient for guests. "We want it to be not a plane-train-automobile situation—and not on Thanksgiving or Memorial Day weekend," he said.

And when it comes to having kids with Wilde, Sudeikis says, "I've certainly found a partner I'd be just as willing to make a child with as make a movie with, so for me that's a win-win."
