Jason Sudeikis Will Play His Ted Lasso Character In A FIFA Tournament With Trevor Noah

Sudeikis will compete alongside his Ted Lasso co-star Brendan Hunt, with other big-name celebrities like Trevor Noah, Becky G, and Nicky Jam also competing in the tournament that’s hosted by FIFA influencer Castro 1021.
