Following in the footsteps of Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, and Seth Meyers, Jason Sudeikis is saying goodbye to "Saturday Night Live."

An eight-year veteran of the sketch series (and "SNL" writer for two years before stepping in front of the camera), Sudeikis confirmed his departure during an appearance on "The Late Show" yesterday.

"I'm definitely done," he revealed to David Letterman. "I'm not coming back next fall."

In recent years, Sudeikis has been building out his film resume, with starring roles in "Hall Pass," "Horrible Bosses," and "The Campaign."

Up next for the 37-year-old actor is "We're the Millers," in which he plays a small-time pot dealer who assembles a fake family to help him cross the Mexican border with a major drug shipment, on behalf of his mega-wealthy boss. That sure-to-be entertaining project, which co-stars Jennifer Aniston as a stripper/his fake wife, William Poulter and Emma Roberts as his pretend kids, and Ed Helms as the orca-owning boss man, hits theaters August 9.

As further proof that his big-screen career is ramping up, Sudeikis also has the films "Relanxious," "Tumbledown," and "Horrible Bosses 2" in the works.
