Jason Sudeikis Brings Midwestern Nice To 'Thundergong!' And 'Ted Lasso'
In addition to hosting a charity benefit as himself this Saturday, the comedian and actor will make an appearance as the Kansas coach he portrays on TV.
Actor Jason Sudeikis describes the challenges of putting on this year's Thundergong! fundraiser for the Steps of Faith Foundation, which provides prosthetics to hundreds of amputees. Sudeikis also spoke about how his Kansas upbringing influenced the television character Ted Lasso, "a small-time college football coach from Kansas hired to coach a professional soccer team in England."
