Jason Sudeikis - Jason Sudeikis Dreamed Of Acting After Cheers Visit

Jason Sudeikis knew he wanted to be an actor after watching his uncle George Wendt clowning around on the set of Cheers.
The Horrible Bosses star is nephew to funnyman Wendt, best known for playing Norm on the long-running sitcom, and was thrilled when he was invited to the TV studio to watch the cast at work.
And after seeing how much fun the show's stars were having, Sudeikis began to dream of a career in Hollywood too.
Sudeikis tells British talk show host Alan Carr, "I did (visit) once when I was in middle school, probably 13 years old. I remember they were rehearsing, him and Woody Harrelson and John Ratzenberger and Ted Danson, they were in the middle of a rehearsal.
"They had this long steel pipe and they made a homemade blow dart with a piece of tape and a nail. They were all sitting across the room, shooting across the bar, the Cheers bar, trying to hit a poster. I was like, 'This seems like the greatest job in the world, I wanna do that when I grow up.' Subconsciously... but now I got to (sic)!"
