The actor is a month out of winning two Emmys for his hit Apple TV+ show "Ted Lasso." He won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Comedy Series.
Sudeikis graduated from the Shawnee Mission School District. He went on to work around the county and globe, trying to make it big in the entertainment business and making people laugh.
His comedic magic got him the job of a lifetime in the early 2000s when he was hired to work at SNL and then became a regular cast member until 2013. The actor had hit characters on the show like "The Devil," the red tracksuit dancer for "What's up with that?," and even impersonated President Joe Biden and several other memorable characters.
