Ted Lasso fans, AFC Richmond had a mini reunion over the weekend.
Jason Sudeikis teamed up with his AppleTV+ show’s co-star Hannah Waddingham on Saturday (Nov. 11) at the actor’s annual Thundergong! charity show in his hometown of Kansas City, Missouri, to perform a surprise rendition of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s Hot 100 chart topper, “Shallow,” from the 2018 film, A Star Is Born.
“There is nobody I would rather sing this song with,” Sudeikis said onstage to former Saturday Night Live star Wille Forte, who thought Sudeikis was talking about him before Waddingham stepped out to sing the track’s second verse.

Sudeikis’ Thundergong!, which raises money for amputees in need, raised $800,000 this year for the Steps of Faith foundation, according to KMBC. The show featured additional appearances from Brendan Hunt, Sam Richardson and Summer Breeze.
Waddington and Sudeikis’ duet comes just a few months after Ted Lasso wrapped its third and final season in May. In the show, the duo play Rebecca Welton and Ted Lasso, respectively, who grow into a loving friendship after years of working together at the AFC Richmond soccer team. The show has had an impressive 61 Emmy nominations over its three-season course, and has won 11 awards, including Sudeikis taking home the 2022 award for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series and the series winning the 2022 and 2021 award for outstanding comedy series. Waddington won the 2021 award for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series.
