Jason Sudeikis was seen for the first time since his ex Olivia Wilde was served custody papers on stage as he filmed scenes for Ted Lasso in London on Friday.
The actor, 46, filmed with extras on Richmond Green, happily chatting to crew members and co-stars in between takes.
Jason sported his character Ted Lasso’s recognisable thick moustache and styled his brunette locks in a slicked back style as he was seen taking pictures with fans.

He wore a blue jumper and shirt for one scene, showing him happily walking across the green and showing off his ball skills as a football crossed his path.
Jason was also spotted in a khaki green jacket and wearing headphones as he relaxed with his co-stars over a lunch break.
It marked the first time that Jason has been seen since his ex and the mother of his children Olivia, 38, was served custody papers live on stage at the 2022 CinemaCon.
The actress was in the middle of a presentation for 4,100 film industry executives about her upcoming thriller Don’t Worry Darling in Las Vegas last week, when she received legal documents from Jason.

Break: He was seen listening to music as he sported a pair of headphones in between takes as he was joined by members of the cast shooting outdoor scenes
Deadline sources claimed on that the manila envelope that was placed on stage at Caesars Palace’s The Colosseum, contained custody papers.
And Variety claimed Jason did not know she would be served the papers in such a public and humiliating way.
A source told the publication: ‘Papers were drawn up to establish jurisdiction relating to the children of Ms. Wilde and Mr. Sudeikis.
In character: Jason sported his character Ted Lasso’s recognisable thick moustache and styled his brunette locks in a slicked back style
Cast: Jason was joined by his co-star Brett Goldstein, who wrote the Apple TV+ sports comedy series and stars as Roy Kent, and Phil Dunster who plays Jamie Tartt
‘Mr. Sudeikis had no prior knowledge of the time or place that the envelope would have been delivered as this would solely be up to the process service company involved and he would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.’
Olivia and Jason began dating in November 2011 and got engaged in December 2012, before eventually splitting in November 2020. They share two children together – eight-year-old son Otis and five-year-old daughter Daisy.
Olivia is currently dating pop star Harry Styles, 28, who she met while she was directing her upcoming thriller, in which he stars alongside Florence Pugh.

Another source told HollywoodLife and expressed that Jason did not think that his former partner would have the documents delivered in such a public setting.
‘Jason was just as shocked as the rest of us when he found out Olivia was served at CinemaCon,’ they said.
The insider stressed that he did not ever anticipate that the actress would be given the documents during her presentation.
‘He knows that being a celebrity figure, you’re always in the public eye but he couldn’t have imagined it would go down the way it did,’ they expressed.

The source also pointed out that the actor did not hold any ill will towards his ex and that he did not direct anyone to serve her in such a manner.
‘Jason would never in a million years try to shame Olivia. She’s the mother of his kids and despite their relationship not working out he would never intentionally embarrass or humiliate her,’ they stated.
It had initially been reported that the documents were an unsolicited script sent by a fan in the hopes of receiving Olivia’s attention.
Olivia was briefly interrupted when an unidentified person approached from the front rows of the audience at the Vegas event, and slid the manila envelope across the front of the stage toward her.

‘This is for me?’ she asked, before opening the envelope and briefly reading the documents. She then continued with her presentation.
Details of their current custody arrangement remain private, and neither Olivia nor Jason have commented on the contents of the envelope.
Before her relationship with Jason, Olivia was previously married to photographer Tao Ruspoli, whom she divorced in 2011.
Olivia met her current boyfriend Harry Styles when he joined the cast of her upcoming film Don’t Worry Baby in 2020.
They were later spotted holding hands at his agent’s wedding in Montecito, California, in January of last year, confirming their romance in 2020.

A source spoke to Us Weekly and expressed that Styles and Wilde were respectful of each other’s professional commitments.
‘Olivia and Harry have an ease to their relationship, they love and support each other, but also let each other be free and work on their own,’ they said.
The insider also expressed that are in ‘constant communication when they’re not together.’
The source made a point of noting that Styles and Wilde deeply admired each other as performers.
‘Both of them respect the other’s work and never want to get in the way of each other,’ they stated.
