Sudeikis – who parlayed his “SNL” fame into big screen roles in movies including “Horrible Bosses,” “Hall Pass,” “The Campaign” and the upcoming “We’re The Millers” with Jennifer Aniston – said he is leaving the show with nothing but positive feelings.

“It’s been fantastic,” he told Letterman of his run on the show. “It’s been really, really amazing. I was very, very lucky.”
