Before making a name for himself on “Saturday Night Live,” where he recently called it quits after — seasons, Jason Sudeikis studied improv in Chicago and toured with Second City.

Lately, the nephew of Beverly native George Wendt is making a name for himself as a big-screen leading man. “We’re the Millers,” with Jennifer Aniston, has taken in nearly $125 million domestically since its August 7 debut.

According to Variety, Sudeikis is also set to star alongside Kirsten Dunst in a romantic comedy from Gary Sanchez Productions (run in part by former Chicago improvisor/actor Adam McKay) and IM Global.

Sudeikis’ role, according to Variety, is that of “a good-natured womanizer who befriends a remorseful serial cheater, played by Dunst.”
