“Goodbyes are tough,” Saturday Night Live star Jason Sudeikis tells Men’s Journal, essentially confirming the swirling rumors that he, like Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg, won’t be returning to the sketch show next season. All three cast members made big-screen splashes this past year—Sudeikis with Horrible Bosses, Wiig with Bridesmaids, and Samberg with That’s My Boy. Undoubtedly, they hope to follow in the footsteps of Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Eddie Murphy, and Chris Farley, among others, who all bid adieu to Studio 8H and saw their careers skyrocket. But in the last 10 years, that kind of success has been elusive. Is leaving SNL really a good move for Sudeikis, Wiig, and Samberg? We grade their career prospects, as well as alumni’s varied post-SNL runs from the past decade.
