15 Little-Known Things About Jason Sudeikis

Jason Sudeikis became a household name after becoming a cast member on Saturday Night Live! During his time there, he played so many hilarious recurring characters, such as Officer Sikorsky, Gil and the dancer in the background of the "What's Up with That" sketches. Since then, Jason has gone on to have a very successful movie career. I've seen Horrible Bosses, its sequel and We're the Millers so many times! Jason has become a bonafide superstar and it looks like he's going to keep working for awhile to make audiences laugh! So here's everything you need to know about funny man, Jason Sudeikis.

1. Everybody knows Jason from Saturday Night Live, but did you know that he was first hired in 2003 as a sketch writer? In 2005, he became a featured player and then he was upgraded to repertory status in 2006!

2. Jason left SNLafter working there for 10 years! 

I'm seriously obsessed with Jason's dancing in the "What Up With That" sketch!

3. Like his SNL friends, Jason started off as a member of an improv comedy troupe. He was in the Second City Las Vegas group before he auditioned for SNL!

4. Jason's not the only actor in his family! His uncle is George Wendt who played Norm Peterson on Cheers

5. Jason was born with anosmia, which means he was born without the ability to smell. 

6. He said that he only noticed something was off because people would constantly comment on how things smelled. 

“You never notice it as a kid, because smell is only pizza and farts. And then at some point you get older, and after puberty people start complaining about the smell of your feet and you’re like... ’I can’t smell it.’”

7. Jason is engaged to the beautiful Olivia Wilde. But according to her, Jason played it very cool when they first met! They exchanged numbers and he didn't text her for a month! 

I would've never pegged Jason as someone who would ghost Olivia. I MEAN LOOK AT HER. WHY WOULD YOU GHOST HER.

8. Olivia also admitted that Jason had to make her want to be in a relationship after she had a tough time with her divorce from Tao Ruspoli. But lucky he was successful and now they're parents to two beautiful children. 

"'It's really hard to jump into a relationship after you feel you've been through a difficult time. I liken it to a burn victim jumping back into a Jacuzzi… It took a lot of coaxing."

9. When Jason was around 15 years old, he decided to take one of the life preservers from the airplane because he wanted to impress his friends. He ended up getting in trouble with airport security and his parents instead!

10. Jason has admitted that he had the biggest crush on Jennifer Aniston when he was in college. 

11. He went from crushing on Jen to starring in five movies with her! 

They worked together on Horrible Bosses, Horrible Bosses 2, Mother's Day, We're the Millersand The Bounty Hunter

12. When he was a kid, he revealed that he would collect Encyclopedia Brown books. Now? He's more into sneakers. He has over 100 pairs! 

13. He's a huge fan of magic. He said that his best birthdays were when he saw David Copperfield perform for his 16th and 26th birthdays!

14. He might not be known as Jason Sudeikis anymore! He said that when they marry, he might take on Olivia's last name! 

"I might take her name. It's much cooler, it's a much better name for me." 

15. Jason said that he wants to continue playing unlikeable characters and make them likeable!
