Jason Sudeikis and Goldstein’s Reaction to the News
Ted Lasso has had quite a stellar year, after winning a couple of Emmy’s, earning 11 awards for the cast and show. Star of the show Jason Sudeikis has shown his excitement for the upcoming EA game release while Brett Goldstein on the other hand joked about not putting the Roy Kent CGI rumors to rest.
“I am truly fortunate and deeply grateful, to have had many special moments in my career thus far, and I consider this experience among the best of them,” Sudeikis said. “As long-time fans of EA SPORTS FIFA, having Ted Lasso and the whole AFC Richmond squad incorporated into the newest version of the game is truly a dream come true for myself and the rest of the fellas.”
Goldstein added in a statement that “It is so f***ing cool to be in FIFA. I’m not sure this is going to help dispel the CGI rumors but f*** it, totally worth it.”
