Jason Sudeikis Renews Contract With 'Saturday Night Live'


Jason Sudeikis


With his return to the sketch series, Sudeikis will play an important role in the upcoming election season where he is expected to reprise Mitt Romney.

A familiar face will grace the 38th season of "Saturday Night Live". Following NBC's announcement of the show's new featured players, it was confirmed that Jason Sudeikis will make this season's team stronger by rejoining the sketch series.

Sudeikis' contract with "SNL" expired after last season. He will now become one of the show's pillars especially this election season where "SNL" has prepared two primetime specials. Sudeikis has been doing impressions of Mitt Romney, but playing the Republican nominee for president is not his only reason to stay.

"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," Sudeikis told the LA Times. "It could be some sort of title change. The least of the concerns is anything financial. I'm not buying a boat because of writing skits. It's more having a desire to give more to a place I really believe in."

Although his contract is renewed, it is yet known how long he will stay. "Right now the idea is that Jason will go through at least until January," exec producer Lorne Michaels told the NY Times. "[But] he's a fiercely loyal guy, both to the show and to me."
