Now we can put our big foam fingers on in anticipation for the star-studded mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, which will center on SNL vet Andy Samberg taking on Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington in a marathon tennis match. Just what you thought it would be, right?
Surfboard. Maya Rudolph stole the spotlight in Saturday Night Live's season finale cold open last night, reprising the role of Beyonce for the opening sketch. As one of numerous guest stars to pop up in the episode, Rudolph garnered the biggest laughs of the opening bit, as she randomly worked lyrics to classic Beyonce songs into her "official" statement about the well-publicized elevator incident between her sister and Jay-Z.
Two years after leaving the show, the Emmy-winning Samberg is the latest in a long line of comedians who find post-SNL success, winning two Golden Globes for his consistently silly Fox sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The musical guest for the evening will be indie pop singer-songwriter St. Vincent, performing on the show for the first time, two months after releasing her highly acclaimed self-titled fourth album.
Adventure Time is gearing up for its fifth season finale next week, and we now have a look at a very intense moment for Jake that involves a voice appearance by Andy Samberg. Who's the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star playing in the Cartoon Network animated series? A rapping bear of course!
Cool beans, Cool, cool beans. Sorry, that just seemed like the only way to describe the directorial development that has the third member of The Lonely Island finally making his contribution to Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The comedy stars Islander Andy Samberg but fellow frontman Jorma Taccone already directed an episode and now, Akiva Schaffer will complete the connection
Man, the 2014 Golden Globes were nutty, eh? Awards season’s drunkest cousin on the block had its night in the spotlight on Sunday evening and as is to be expected, they did not disappoint. From minute one the show was off on a rocketing and riotous pace, with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler absolutely nailing their opening monologue and things only continued off the rails from there. In a good way, of course!
Among the new comedies headed to Fox this fall is Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a single-camera comedy from Dan Goor and Michael Schur, which stars Saturday Night Live's Andy Samberg and takes place in a Brooklyn police precinct. The trailer above gives us a good idea of what this series is all about, centering on Samberg's goof-off character, Jake Peralta, a cop used to bending the rules and having some fun. But that changes when Andre Braugher's Ray Holt arrives and puts his foot down.
Following word of a handful of drama pilots that received series orders at Fox for the 2013-2014 season, comes another batch of series orders at Fox, this time for comedies. Among the pilots going to series at Fox is the cop comedy starring Andy Samberg, and Surviving Jack, which will star Chris Meloni.
It's disappointing that things didn't work out for Shawn Ryan's Last Resort. The ABC submarine drama was cancelled last fall and has since finished up its 13-episode run, leaving its cast free to pursue other projects. For Andre Braugher, it looks like the future may include a return to comedy. The Men of a Certain Age star has signed on for a Fox comedy pilot, which will also put him back in a uniform.
Fox has found a co-star for Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samberg in the currently untitled detective comedy pilot from Mike Schur and Dan Goor. Tyler Perry’s Are We There Yet star Terry Crews has signed on to star opposite Samberg for the single-camera project.
Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur's comedy pilot with Dan Goor still doesn't have a name, but it does have an order at Fox, which makes it the first pilot order for Fox's 2012-2013 TV season. And that brings the comedy one step closer to us having Andy Samberg back on television stateside.
Since his departure from NBC's long running sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live, Andy Samberg has moved on to star in the BBC Three sitcom Cuckoo. We may be seeing him back on the small screen stateside soon enough, assuming things go well for Michael Schur and Dan Goor's untitled comedy pilot, in which Samberg is now set to star.
Andy Samberg just made his farewells to Saturday Night Live, and new TV gig is officially confirmed – he's going across the pond. He’s headed over to BBC Three to take on a role in a new comedy series called Cuckoo. The six-part series is gearing up for summer filming, so Samberg isn’t wasting any time with his next career move it seems.
Samberg is set to appear in Cuckoo, an upcoming comedy that will air on BBC Three across the pond. Samberg’s role will follow him as an indolent dude who marries a British lady. In the series, trouble will arise after Samberg strikes the wrong chord with his new wife’s father.
Saturday Night Live has often been a rather large stepping stone for comedic actors, many of whom have gone on to create names for themselves beyond their place on the sketch comedy series. Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis have already begun to do just that, having appeared in various films while also appearing on SNL. While it isn’t a huge surprise to hear rumors that they’re set to depart the show after this season, it’s still disappointing.
