NEW YORK -

It's official: Jason Sudeikis is leaving "Saturday Night Live." The actor made the announcement on Wednesday while taping his appearance on "Late Show With David Letterman."

"I'm definitely done," he said when Letterman asked how long a person could work on the comedy program. "I'm going to leave. I'm not coming back next fall."

Sudeikis has been with "SNL" for a decade. He worked exclusively as a writer for the first two years, then in front of the camera for eight. He has impersonated several political figures, including George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Joe Biden. His recurring characters include The Devil on the "Weekend Update" segment, WXPD News anchor Jack Rizzoli, Sensei Mark Hoffman and many more. He's also done numerous celebrity impressions, including one of "Late Show" host Letterman.

Sudeikis isn't the first cast member to announce he was leaving "SNL" this year. Bill Hader revealed his exit in May after eight seasons on the show. "Weekend Update" host Seth Meyers is also on his way out, and will take over talk show "Late Night" after current host Jimmy Fallon heads to Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" desk next year. And Fred Armisen, who has been with the show since 2002, confirmed to Splitsider last month that he also will not be back.
