NEW YORK, Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Longtime "Saturday Night Live" star Jason Sudeikis will be on the New York sketch comedy show when it kicks off its 38th season Saturday, NBC said.

Known for his spot-on impressions of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and current Vice President Joe Biden, Sudeikis has been part of the "SNL" ensemble since 2005.

EW.com said Sudeikis' previous contract expired and it was unclear all summer whether he was going to sign a new one and continue on the show.

NBC told the entertainment news website Tuesday he will, in fact, be on Saturday's season premiere.

"SNL" veterans Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg left the show last spring.
