Mathew Imaging/WireImageJason "Laying the Groundwork" Sudeikis' smooth skills of seduction have apparently paid off: the deceptively unassuming actor-comedian is quietly dating bombshell actress Eva Mendes, Page Six reports.
Sudeikis and Mendes, who must have ended her 10-year relationship with boyfriend George Augusto, were spotted in New York City on a double dinner date with Jason Bateman and his wife, Amanda Anka. (Is it just us, or is Bateman constantly double dating with co-stars? First Jennifer Aniston, now Sudeikis. Perhaps his publicist is "canoodling" with Page Six.)
"Eva and Jason went out for a smoke break, and he told her, 'We make a great team,'" says an eyewitness at L'Artusi, an Italian restaurant in the West Village.
What a line. And it's allegedly working.
