  8. Jason Sudeikis Is in Talks to Be the New Fletch

    Amos Barshad

    Technically, Jason Sudeikis has already had his non-SNL big-screen breakthrough. First there was the surprise success of 2011's Horrible Bosses, which cracked $200 million (and is getting a sequel, out in the fall); then there was the e...

  10. Kanye and Ben Affleck March Joylessly Through Their SNL Promos

    Amos Barshad

    This weekend's Saturday Night Live has the auspices of greatness. It's not only the season finale, but also the last episode for Bill Hader (and quite possibly for Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis as well). And while Hader has already said there's not...

    Amos Barshad

    As THR points out, Bradley Whitford is appearing in an upcoming episode of Matthew Perry's Go On — which, considering the, uh, less than pristine reputation of Aaron Sorkin's one-and-done SNL-y-drama, is the closest we'll most likely ever come ...
