Jason Sudeikis as Bomba
Voiced By Jason Sudeikis
JASON SUDEIKIS (Bomba) is in his eighth season as a cast member on NBC’s venerable Saturday Night Live. Sudeikis worked for two years as a writer on the show before becoming a series regular in 2005, and has won over audiences with his impersonations of Vice President Joe Biden, American Idol winner Taylor Hicks, and the recurring hip-hop dancer character in the "What Up with That" sketch.
Sudeikis starred in the feature ensemble comedy Horrible Bosses, alongside Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston; the Farrelly Brothers comedy Hall Pass, with Owen Wilson, Christina Applegate and Jenna Fischer; and in the hit HBO comedy series Eastbound and Down.
He will star with Charlie Day in One Night on the Hudson, a TJ Fixman-scripted comedy that will be directed by Seth Gordon. This project re-teams Sudeikis, Day and Gordon from Horrible Bosses.
Among his other upcoming projects are the feature films We’re the Millers, which re-teams him with Jennifer Aniston; Adam Shankman’s drama This is Where I Leave You; and the comedy Relanxious.
Sudeikis’ previous film credits include The Bounty Hunter, in which he starred alongside Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler; Going the Distance, opposite Drew Barrymore, Justin Long and Charlie Day; What Happens in Vegas, with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher; and A Good Old Fashioned Orgy, co-directed and co-written by Pete Huyck and Alex Gregory; as well as roles in The Fan, Watching the Detectives, Bill, Semi-Pro and The Rocker.
Sudeikis received rave reviews for his arc on NBC’s Emmy© Award- winning series 30 Rock, appearing as Tina Fey’s charmingly funny love interest, Floyd. He can also be heard as the voices of two principal characters on Fox’s hit animated comedy series The Cleveland Show, created by Seth MacFarlane, and guest-starred on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia as the long-forgotten fourth member of the Paddy’s gang, Schmitty.
Born in Fairfax Virginia, Sudeikis grew up in Overland Park, Kansas. Attending junior college on a basketball scholarship, he was a class clown and admitted procrastinator who frequently dribbled himself in and out of trouble. He began his path in show business with classes at the ComedySportz Theater (now Comedy City) in Kansas City, before leaving basketball and college for Chicago, where he performed with The Second City National Touring Company, Improv Olympic, The Annoyance Theater and Boom Chicago in Amsterdam. Moving to Nevada, he was a founding member of The Second City Las Vegas. In 2003, Sudeikis was encouraged by his uncle, George Wendt, to send a tape to the producers of SNL. He started on the show as a staff writer and, after two years and many auditions, found himself on camera and never looked back.
Sudeikis is actively involved with The Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City as well as other charities.
