On the latest episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, the 131-part television documentary about Seth Meyers' time at Saturday Night Live, guy who makes that face Jason Sudeikis got a chance to see his favorite old, unproduced SNL sketch finally make it to air.
Jason Sudeikis announced tonight on Letterman that he's leaving SNL. He's the third male cast member to leave the show since last season, following Bill Hader and Fred Armisen. Seth Meyers, set to replace Jimmy Fallon when he jumps to the helm of the "Tonight Show," will also leave sometime over the next season.
When asked on hardball investigative show the View whether he would return to Saturday Night Live in the fall, Jason Sudeikis tried to evade the question. Eventually he cracked under all the pressure and answered that he has no idea whether he will return to play the show's resident normal Dad, Devil, Joe Biden, A-Hole, overzealous backup dancer, or DJ Supersoak. But it sounds like he's got lots of other options.
Saturday Night Live opened its 37th season tonight with a parody of Thursday's Fox News/Google Republican presidential debate. Despite being too long and wrought with cliche—Newt Gingrich has a huge head! Michele Bachmann's eyes are crazy!—the sketch managed to work thanks to Bill Hader as debate moderator Shep Smith and Alec Baldwin as the same confused, babbling version of Rick Perry that showed up to the real thing. A video of highlights is above; the full sketch is viewable here.
Here's a trailer for the comedy A Good Old Fashioned Orgy, a movie about a very sexy Labor Day party. Well, it's not sexy, is the point, it's a bunch of regular old weirdos having an orgy.
Back in February—when he wasn't cozying up courtside to Rihanna—Justin Bieber participated in the NBA's Celebrity All-Star Game. It seems like SNL's Jason Sudeikis wasn't impressed with Bieber's skills considering he had this to say about his teen opponent on tonight's Jimmy Kimmel Live!: "I didn't even know it was him for the first two quarters, I thought it was a Make-A-Wish situation."

Here's a trailer for Horrible Bosses, the new star-studded comedy about a trio of unhappy dudes who decide to kill their, well, horrible bosses. The cast is great (Charlie Day! Colin Farrell! Aniston!) and the concept is fun, so why does it look so... dull?
This weekend, Sir Elton John will be Saturday Night Live's host and musical guest. While Elton John's name isn't necessarily associated with hysteric laughter, this cute promo gives some reassurance to his comedic chops.
