Jason Sudeikis cashes in 'Bounty'

To star opposite Jennifer Aniston in comedy

Floyd is moving from Liz Lemon to Rachel Green.

"Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" regular Jason Sudeikis has been cast in the Columbia comedy "Bounty Hunter" opposite Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler.

The movie centers on Milo (Butler), a bounty hunter hired to track down his ex-wife, Casidy (Aniston), who has skipped out on bail. Sudeikis will play Stewart, a work friend of Casidy's who falsely believes he is her boyfriend and takes off after her when she goes on the run.

Andy Tennant ("Fool's Gold") is directing a script by Sarah Thorp ("Twisted"). Neal Moritz is producing through his Sony-based Original Films.

Sudeikis, repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners, was a writer on "SNL" before becoming a cast member four years ago. He recently had roles in "The Rocker" and "What Happens in Vegas."
