Breaking News - How Jason Sudeikis Landed 'SNL' (1125 words)
Sudeikis hadn't imagined himself in a comedy career until Rockhurst classmate Cam Lynch took him to a performance at ComedySportz.
Sudeikis' uncle is George Wendt, the former "Cheers" star and Second City alumnus, who up to that point had played no role in his nephew's career.
This spring Sudeikis was upgraded to an on-camera role, and early results suggest he's well on his way to becoming a top-tier, or repertory, player on "SNL." He's even auditioned for the "Weekend Update" job.
