Diane Sawyer snaps up Ted Lasso's saucy date proposition: ‘I’m in’ - New York Post
Jul 26, 2021 56 secs

The 75-year-old broadcast legend has responded to her mention in the second-season premiere of the hit Apple+ series “Ted Lasso,” starring 2021 Emmy nominee Jason Sudeikis, 45, as a relentlessly positive soccer coach.

During Thursday’s episode, AFC Richmond boss Rebecca Welton (played by Hannah Waddingham) asks Coach Lasso “what [he] would say” to a post-match drink.

Quipped Lasso, “Oh, the same thing I’d say to Diane Sawyer if she ever asked me out on a date: Yes, please.”.

Never one to drop the ball, an earnest Lasso followed up with Sawyer, whose husband of 16 years, “The Graduate” filmmaker Mike Nichols, died in 2014

Reality and fiction have blended as both Sudeikis and the man he plays are currently embroiled in breakups — Lasso from his wife back in the US, and Sudeikis from ex-partner Olivia Wilde, with whom he shares two children

“That’s an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about,” he said of his relationship with Wilde, 37, who apparently left Sudeikis for a tryst with pop idol Harry Styles, 27

“It’s the closest thing I have to a tattoo,” he said about Ted Lasso
