Jason Sudeikis was the celebrity guest on last Friday's U.S. version of Who Do You Think You Are? A long-standing member of Saturday Night Live, Sudeikis has branched out to star in several movies. He was raised in Overland Park, Kansas, and was led to believe that his grandfather on his father's side died when his dad was only 2 years old.
He started out at his parents' home looking at pictures of his grandmother and trying to find out about his father's father which has always been a mystery. He soon discovered the reason his parents had never discussed the grandfather: he was an alcoholic and he died homeless.
Sudeikis also found out that his great-grandfather led a double life. It seemed he was married to two different women at the same time, one in Chicago and one in Connecticut.
This was an interesting episode. I did not get to see it Friday night because I was busy at the NGS conference in Cincinnati. However, I was able to watch it later on my computer by going to http://www.nbc.com/who-do-you-think-you-are/video/jason-sudeikis/1400995.
You can do the same. In fact, all of this year's episodes are now available free of charge on NBC.com at http://www.nbc.com/who-do-you-think-you-are/video/.
