Sudeikis famously accepted a Golden Globe earlier this year in a tie-dyed hoodie, and Evangeline paid homage to the look during the interview. “This is my ode to you Jason I wore it for you,” she said of her hoodie. “He's a real trendsetter, I don’t know if you've noticed.”
Jenn commented, “He really is. Listen, the crushed velvet suit at the Emmys made a huge splash now you saw Daniel Craig rocking it at the 007 premiere. Did you see that?” Jason replied, “I did see that, yes.”
Fans will see a different side to Jason in the gritty “South of Heaven” as he plays Jimmy Ray, who is nothing like Ted Lasso.
The movie follows ex-con Jimmy, who is out on parole, as he reunites with his childhood love Annie (Lilly), who is dying of cancer.
He vows to give her the best year of her life… until he gets roped back into a life of crime.
Sudeikis joked of Ted and Jimmy, “Well, first off I mean [Jimmy] does not have a mustache… but he does have a southern accent.”
He went on, “Jimmy Ray has been in prison for a decade or so and you know he’s looking to get out, to try and give his true love… you know, make up for some lost time… Then you get to meet the lovely angel that is Annie portrayed Evangeline Lilly.”
Evangeline said of her character, “She is relentlessly hopeful and very resilient and strong but has an extremely tender and soft exterior.”
Jenn pointed out to Aharon, “We can’t talk about this movie without talking about the gore and when it came to the violence, shades of [Quentin] Tarantino there?” Aharon said, “As for working with work tools and stuff like that I just whenever I write a story I always look for what can go wrong.”
The “South of Heaven” is in theaters and on demand now. On October 23, Jason will be hosting “Saturday Night Live.”
The comedian, who is a former cast member on the show, said, “I’m looking forward to it… There are still a few folks on the cast and writing staff who were there when I was there so it'll be good to see them… I'm excited to go back.”
