I think we can officially call 2011 “The Year of Sudekis,” because the profile on Jason Sudekis has pretty much exploded. His daytime job on Saturday Night Live, hosting awards shows, movies (including Horrible Bosses opening this weekend), and now we can add sharing screen time with Motherfuckin’ Kenny Powers.
TV Guide just confirmed that Sudekis will join the case of Eastbound & Down for season 3 in a recurring role that makes him a new friend of Powers (played by Danny McBride).
This news is pretty damn exciting for a few reasons. First, it means they are close to filming/launching a new season of Eastbound, who, with Powers has easily created one of the best comedic characters in recent memory. Second, with Sudekis getting more work he can give Kristen Wiig a run for her money as the most buzzed about current SNL cast member.
