With Andy Samberg confirming the rumor that he is joining Kristen Wiig in exiting "Saturday Night Live," will the sketch comedy show lose one more cast member? Jason Sudeikis, who has been rumored to be leaving "SNL" with Samberg and Wiig since Us Weekly reported the story on April 4, remains a question mark.

On May 22, the New York Daily News reported that Sudeikis told a group at a party after the show's May 19 season finale that "he wasn't sure about staying or leaving." The report said that he was upset that Wiig got a special "SNL" send-off on the finale, with host Mick Jagger leading the cast through a rendition of "She's a Rainbow" as Wiig hugged others and danced. At that point, no announcement had been made about any cast member's future.

Sudeikis currently portrays Mitt Romney on the show, so there will be a definite need for him in the fall. But like Samberg and Wiig, both of whom left for big screen prospects, Sudeikis has a burgeoning film career. He starred in 2011's "Hall Pass" and "Horrible Bosses," and is scheduled to appear in the upcoming Will Ferrell comedy "The Campaign" as well four movies next year.

Should Sudeikis return? If he leaves, which cast member are you saddest to see go? Who should play Mitt Romney? Check out his take on Romney:
