Jason Sudeikis has left Saturday Night Live. The actor, who has appeared on the late-night NBC sketch comedy series for 10 seasons, confirmed his exit on the Late Show with David Letterman.

He said: "I'm definitely done. I'm not coming back next fall."

Sudeikis' representative confirmed the departure to The Hollywood Reporter.

Rumours that Sudeikis' SNL days were coming to an end surfaced last year, and in a recent interview it became apparent that the current season was most likely his last.

He told Modern Luxury magazine: "You never really leave that place, and it never leaves you.

"It's an emotional journey getting through a season, much less the final one."

Sudeikis will next be seen alongside Jennifer Aniston in We're the Millers.
