‘SNL’s’ Jay Pharoah Confirms Jason Sudeikis’ Exit
This past weekend during 'SNL's' heartwarming season finale, cast and crew bid adieu to both Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, while less in focus was the fate of fellow veteran Jason Sudeikis. Sudeikis has kept mum on the prospect of his 'SNL' future, but has cast member Jay Pharoah accidentally spilled the beans?
Ben Affleck's season finale'SNL' hosting gig certainly gave ample spotlight to the departing veterans, but might Sudeikis' comparatively muted presence imply the actor changed his mind about leaving 'SNL'? Not so, according to series star Jay Pharoah, who tweeted a goodbye to all three, before promptly pulling the post down.
"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 wrote yesterday before deleting the message. SplitSider managed to get a cap of the tweet before its removal, as nothing stays buried on the internet.
'SNL' and Sudeikis' reps have yet to make any kind of comment about the incident, but what say you? Do you think Sudeikis will make a quiet departure in advance of next season, or stick around through the fall like Seth Meyers?
