Jason Sudeikis hinted in a profile in the LA Times today that he might be the next cast member to leave "Saturday Night Live." The 36-year-old actor told reporter Rebecca Keegan that he was interested in flexing certain creative muscles that he hadn't been flexing while on the show.

"I'd like the opportunity to use creative muscles that ... haven't been asked of me for the first nine years that I've worked there," he said.

Sudeikis went on to say that his impression of Mitt Romney, which has garnered acclaim, won't be enough to keep him on the show, even though he'd likely get lots of air time as the presidential election heats up.
