Since being hired as a writer (and later cast member) on saturday night live in 2003, Jason Sudeikis set to work, almost non-stop. Between his years SNL, his ever-growing resume of movie roles and a few savvy real estate investments over the years, Jason had already amassed an impressive net worth by the time he landed his real lucrative gig as an Apple TV+ star. Ted Lasso (more on the height of this payday in a moment).
And now? Now his net worth is skyrocketing.
All together, Jason Sudeikis has a reported net worth of $25 millionwhich must make him feel the IRL MVP vibes in a big way, every day.
Yes, $25 million. While there isn’t a ton of information available on his specific salaries on different projects over the years, his high-profile contract for the third season of Ted Lasso was so huge that it made headlines on its own.
What does Jason Sudeikis do for Ted Lasso?
Since the first day, Ted Lasso was a huge payday for Jason, who reportedly earned between $250,000 and $300,000 (and by some reports as high as $400,000) per episode over the show’s first two seasons. Upon renegotiating his contract for season three, however, Apple TV+ gave the actor a big pay raise, bumping his salary to around $1 million per episode. “The sum also includes the creator’s fees and compensation for his role as head writer and executive producer of the show,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
To be fair though, it looks like Jason more than earned the raise since he said that in terms of runtime, season 3 (which would be the show’s final season) is actually almost like two seasons on its own.
“If anything, the effort took as long as it did because of the density of stories,” he said. Variety. “…And so, while we’re flattered by the curiosity of ‘Is This the Last Season,’ the fact is that content-wise, if you’re just sticking with the length, this season has a Season 4 in it. -even.”
Of course, thanks to his higher salary, Jason *might* have more incentive to sign for a potential Ted Lasso season 4, for which we would be completely there.
How much did Jason Sudeikis earn for SNL?
Like we said, not a lot of no-Ted Lasso salary information is public, but we can make educated guesses about his earnings in his saturday night live days, based on some general information about SNL throw away wages.

It’s hard to guess what Jason’s salary was during his first two years at SNL while strictly behind the scenes as a writer, but in 2005 he made his on-screen debut and was eligible for the show’s standard freshman cast salary, which Celebrity Net Worth said is currently around $7,000 per episode, or $147,000 per season. In their second season, the cast members get a raise of $8,000 per episode (which works out to $168,000 per season), then they get another bump on their fifth anniversary, when they start getting $15,000. $ per episode (or $315,000 per season).
Current NBC Standard SNL the pay scale would top out at around $25,000 per episode, which equates to $525,000 per year (but there are outliers – Kenan Thompson, who was a cast member for a record 20 seasons, is expected to earning $2-3 million a year now, after his two decades of wage negotiations and raises).
Jason spent nine seasons as SNL actor before leaving in 2013, and, based on the current SNL pay scale, safe estimates of his earnings while performing on the show would be between about $2.5 million and $3.4 million (the lower assuming he no longer received increase after his fifth season and the highest assuming he immediately got bumped into SNL‘s max standard in its sixth season and earned it until its release).
It also makes brand mentions.
In addition to his work as an actor/writer/comedian, Jason has, like many other celebrities, sometimes had a scramble to promote brands. In 2012, he became the voice of Applebee’s, who joked on Twitter that he paid him in apps for work:

In 2014, he and his ex-partner Olivia Wilde lost $6.5 million on a 6,500-square-foot, 9-bedroom townhouse in Brooklyn (well, technically, two trusts that we’re just assuming they own have lost that money). As late as 2021, the couple reportedly still owned their Brooklyn home, even after they split in 2020. In 2015, after buying the Brooklyn townhouse, Jason and Olivia put their old home in New York up for sale. York, an apartment in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District that reportedly sold for $3.8 million.
The couple also owned property on the west coast. In 2019, they reportedly purchased a $3.35 million, 2,800 square foot Spanish-style home in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood, which they also appear to still own.
