Sudeikis moved to New York from his home state of Kansas in 2003 with then-girlfriend Kay Cannon, who became a writer and producer for “30 Rock,” when he scored a behind-the-scenes writing job on “SNL.” The couple married in 2004, and Sudeikis graduated to full cast member on the show in 2006.

This once rich man moves in with his friend, but the two become distracted by wooing a character played by Olivia Wilde.
By the looks of things, you can probably fill in the blanks from there.
