So it turns out Jason Sudeikis’s first name isn’t really Jason.

Actors often use stage names, but Jason Sudeikis uses a different name for a completely different reason.

On Monday, the “Ted Lasso” star told “Today” that he was actually born Daniel Jason Sudeikis; however, he uses Jason because his father shares his name.

“We were looking for you on Google over the weekend. True or False: Is your real name Daniel? asked co-host Jill Martin.

“That my real name is Daniel?” My name? It’s true. I was Daniel Jason. [My dad’s] Daniel Joseph and my mom decided to call me Jason so that we know who she was screaming against, ”Sudeikis said.

Sudeikis appeared on the morning show to promote his debut as a host of “SNL”. He will return this Saturday, almost eight years after leaving his role as a writer and actor.
