Rob Kim/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Jason Sudeikis, 37, confirmed last week that he’s leaving Saturday Night Live, but he’s not planning any weekend parties with his free time just yet.

“I don’t know if the first few [Saturdays] will be all that relaxing,” he told ABC News Thursday night at the We’re the Millers premiere, his latest movie. “There’ll probably be a lot of longing.”

Longing for his eight years on the show, which included satires of Mitt Romney, Joe Biden and even Jesus.

The loss of Sudeikis is a big hit to Saturday Night Live but not the only one. Sketch comedy vets Fred Armisen and Bill Hader are also leaving the cast.

Sudeikis may miss his  Saturday nights on the show, but another day of the week might become more enjoyable.

“I look forward to Tuesday nights,” he said. ”The writing nights, being eventually filled with doing something less stressful than trying to come up with an idea.”

The Horrible Bosses star is also set to marry actress Olivia Wilde and joked that his new movie opposite Jennifer Aniston did not in any way prep him for the real thing.

“We met under different circumstances than trying to smuggle marijuana into the country,” he said,  referring to the movie’s story line.
