Daniel Jason Sudeikis (born September 18, 1975) is an SNL cast member. Jason was hired as a writer in 2003, and has made uncredited appearances during his writing stint, usually appearing as an audience member during that week's host's monologue.

Jason's most memorable audience member character was "Chris," who appeared on 1/15/2005 during the Topher Grace/The Killers episode. "Chris" got into an argument with Topher Grace, since Topher, in high school, changed his name from 'Christopher' to 'Topher' to stop people from calling him 'Chris'. "Chris", however, thought that Topher thought he was too good to be called 'Chris'.

Jason is the nephew of George Wendt, who was a frequent guest in the '80s and early 90's, most famously in the Bill Swerski's Superfans sketches.

Sudeikis is also known for his roles as Fred Searing in Hall Pass, Kurt Buckman in Horrible Bosses, Eric Keppler in A Good Old Fashioned Orgy and for voicing Holt Richter and Terry Kimple in the Fox animated series The Cleveland Show, the spin-off of the popular animated series Family Guy.
