Born September 18, 1975, comedian Jason Sudeikis is perhaps best-known as a recurring cast member on Saturday Night Live.
The Kansas-bred comic studied at iO in Chicago before joining the Second City improv group; he later became a founding member of Second City Las Vegas.
In 2003, at the urging of Tina Fey‘s husband, Sudeikis joined Saturday Night Live as a sketch comedy writer. Within the next two years, Sudeikis became a featured player on the show.
Sudeikis has a recurring guest role on the NBC comedy 30 Rock; he also voices the characters Holt Richter and Terry Kimple on The Cleveland Show. In addition to television, Sudeikis has appeared in films such as What Happens in Vegas, Going the Distance, Hall Pass and Horrible Bosses.
Though Sudeikis wed actress/30 Rock writer Kay Cannon in 2004, they have since divorced. Shortly after their split, the funnyman began dating Mad Men‘s January Jones. After six months of dating, the two broke up in January 2011.
Sudeikis was engaged to Olivia Wilde for seven years before they called it quits in November 2020. They share son Otis and daughter Daisy.
