07/25/2013 by Kristina Lopez

After 10 years at "Saturday Night Live," Jason Sudeikis is leaving the long-running sketch comedy series.

The actor announced the news during his appearance on "Late Show with David Letterman" on Wednesday, July 23. Sudeikis, who is currently promoting his upcoming film "We're the Millers," told Letterman, "I'm definitely done."

"I'm going to leave. I'm not coming back next fall," he added. His announcement can be seen below.

Sudeikis later said that his time on the show has been "really, really amazing. I was very, very lucky."

The comedian impersonated a number of public figures on the show including Republican Mitt Romney, Vice President Joe Biden, Billy Ray Cyrus, Todd Palin and Taylor Hicks.

He also played the Devil in several "Weekend Update" segments and was also known for his quirky characters like the break dancer in the "What Up with That" sketch and the judge in the recurring "Maine Justice" sketch.

Sudeikis wasn't the only cast member to exit after the recent season of "Saturday Night Live." Both Fred Armisen and Bill Hader previously announced they were leaving the show.

In May it was announced that "Saturday Night Live" writer and cast member Seth Meyers would replace Fallon as the host of "Late Night" when Fallon moves over to "The Tonight Show."
