Jason Sudeikis never thought he was going to be an actor – let alone a male model!

The Saturday Night Live actor turned Hollywood hunk strikes a pose and models menswear for one of our favorite men’s websites, MR PORTER, which launched Issue 48 this week – and RadarOnline.com has all the photos and details.

The divorced actor, who is currently dating big screen bombshell Olivia Wilde, reveals that he never planned on a career in showbiz.

"I didn't really want to be an actor when I was growing up - I wanted to be whatever I was reading about or seeing at the time,” he reveals.  “When I read The Firm I wanted to be a lawyer; when I saw Top Gun, I wanted to be a fighter pilot. So that's why acting probably turned out to be a good thing for me because I get to be people for five minutes or 90 minutes.”

But his introduction to showbiz was courtesy of his uncle, George Wendt, who played Norm on Cheers.

"Having George as an uncle made acting seem like a viable career. He met his wife at Second City so I looked at him and thought, wow, this Second City place, you go there, you marry a beautiful woman and you get a job on Cheers - that place sounds magical!"
