Jason Sudeikis, the award-winning writer and star of Apple TV+'s "Ted Lasso," is working with Abbott, a healthcare technologies leader, and Real Madrid, one of the biggest soccer clubs in the world, in a partnership that seeks to "support the health and nutrition of children globally," as described in a press release in 14 News.

Sudeikis, whose iconic Ted Lasso character, is an American idealistic football coach tasked with coaching an English soccer team, signed on to lend his star power to the partnership. In a hilarious interview with Today, Sudeikis jokes that he's afraid that "people are concerned that they've signed [him] on as a player possibly."

While Sudeikis has had a long career as a comedy writer and actor, the recent success of the Emmy-winning "Ted Lasso" has catapulted him to a new level of fame. This includes his upcoming debut as a host on "Saturday Night Live," a show in which he had previously served as a cast member and writer.

We love seeing Sudeikis use his platform for good - Ted Lasso is here to uplift the lives of children in addition to the characters around him on TV!

The Today Show team closed the interview out by getting Jason Sudeikis to open up about his real name. That's right, Jason isn't Jason's first name. His legal name is Daniel, he goes on to explain how he and his father share a first name but his mom would call him Jason so he knew who she was yelling at.
