SNL’s Jason Sudeikis Attempts Jump to Feature Films


The next in a long line of SNL cast members to try their hand at film, Jason Sudeikis is co-starring with Jennifer Aniston for the upcoming Bounty Hunter – which is either about someone who tracks down criminals or a stay-at-home mom who needs some sort of quilted quicker picker-upper. He’ll stake his claim amongst the successes (John Belushi, Mike Meyers, Will Ferrell) and the failures (Chris Kattan, Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrll).

Although it looks like the film will mostly be about Jennifer Aniston‘s and Gerard Butler‘s characters (one the hunted, the other the huntee), it sounds as if Sudeikis will play a decently-sized supporting role as a co-worker of Aniston’s character who runs off after her when she runs off from Butler’s character.

This would all be simpler if I just said their character’s names. Milo. Casidy. Stewart. Respectively. Now read the sentence again as Casidy, Milo, Stewart, Casidy, Milo. There we go. Far less confusing.

Anyway, this sounds like the stock romantic comedy that we’ve been really hoping Aniston would branch out and do after all of her meaty dramatic roles. But I’m not one to judge ahead of time. It may be the case that this film is a bit deeper, perhaps a bit more complex and the average…and oh shit, that guy who directed Fool’s Gold is directing it.

What do you think? Did you know that the guy who directed Fool’s Gold‘s name is Andy Tennant? Do you know where he lives?
