The ” Ted Lasso The star, 46, has been known – and credited – as Jason for many years now in film and television appearances.
However, during Monday’s episode of the show “Today”, the actor revealed his birth name is Daniel Jason Sudeikis while playing a game of “True or False?” With the third hour hosts Al Roker, Sheinelle Jones and Jill Martin.
The ” Saturday Night Live The alum confirmed that his “first name” is Daniel.
“I was Daniel Jason,” he shared. It is [my father] Daniel Joseph and my mom decided to call me Jason, so we know who she was yelling at. “
“He’s my mother’s younger brother,” he explained.
The love of rewards seems to run in the family too, like Sudeikis recently won two Emmys for his work on ‘Ted Lasso’ and was nominated for two more, while Wendt, 73, was nominated for six Emmys for playing Norm Peterson on the iconic sitcom.
Martin also lobbied Sudeikis for information on the upcoming third season of Apple TV+“Ted Lasso,” which just finished airing its second season on October 8.
The comedian has remained silent on the show – as well as its end.
“This is a question that even Wikipedia may not be familiar with,” he said.
Additionally, the actor said he felt “a lot” of pressure at the start of season three after the overwhelmingly positive response in the first two rounds of the series.
Sudeikis wasn’t the only one to win an Emmy for the series. Actors Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein also won awards for their performances. Additionally, the show’s casting, picture editing and sound mixing also won trophies.
Best Comedy Series was also nominated for an additional 13 Emmys, including performances by actors Jeremy Swift, Nick Mohammed, Brendan Hunt and Juno Temple.
