Jason Sudeikis might be a regular at hanging with his fellow celebrities thanks to his work on “Saturday Night Live” and his gig hosting the MTV Movie Awards, but there still is one person he is dying to meet: Eddie Murphy.
MTV News caught up with Sudeikis to chat about “Horrible Bosses” during Sneak Peek Week, and one of the questions we tossed at him was about who his favorite ’80s action star or rock band was. Sudeikis (and yours truly) consider “Beverly Hills Cop” to be one of the great action comedies of that era, and that’s how Murphy climbed to the top of his list.
“I think he’s something else,” Sudeikis said. “I never got to meet him, but I think that’s who I would probably pick.”
The rock star question wasn’t as easily answered, unfortunately. “And I think, as far as ’80s rock stars, my gosh, there’s probably some guys out there I could find, but most of them I think would be frightening,” Sudeikis said.
The other question we threw at him and his “Horrible Bosses” co-star Jason Bateman was about what the one addiction is that they have a problem quitting. Bateman was quick to answer, “Sudeikis,” to which the “Saturday Night Live” star responded, “You just can’t quit me.”
On a (slightly) more serious note, Sudeikis answered, “No, not really. I can probably walk away from just about anything at this point. In a good way.”
