Andy Samberg

  1. Karen Gillan and Game of Thrones‘ Kit Harington Are Going To Be In An HBO Sports Mockumentary Together

    With bonus Andy Samberg!

    File this under Relevant to our Interests: Amy Pond and Jon Snow are going to play childhood friends in HBO’s 7 Days In Hell. And Amy makes a sex tape with Jake Peralta from Brooklyn Nine-Nine. And Clara from Back to the Future Part III is there. It's a maaaaadhouse!

  2. Andy Samberg Spoke at Harvard, So Watch This Instead of Thinking About That’s My Boy [Video]

    For A More Civilized Age

    This is not a commencement speech for Harvard's new graduates. Nor is Andy Samberg receiving any kind of honorary degree. Nope, he's just speaking at the university's Class Day, being funny, bestowing some thoughtful advice upon Harvard graduates who probably have nothing to worry about. It's 21 minutes of Andy Samberg that doesn't involve Adam Sandler as his horrible father, so I highly recommend it. And yes, he does Mark Wahlberg and Nicolas Cage, and that's reason enough to watch.

  3. “Lazy Sunday 2″: Andy Samberg’s Final Digital Short [Video]

    so long and thanks for all the fish

    If there's another Saturday Night Live departure I'm sad about, it's Andy Samberg's. I can't tell you how the Digital Shorts saved my sanity a few years back, and probably the sanity of others. And while I'm psyched to see what Hollywood has in store for Young Sandwich, it'll be a slightly less raptastic weekend for all of us from now on. Samberg's departure is still not officially confirmed, but he said all we needed to hear in his (presumably) final video as a cast member: "That's how Imma finish it!" We present to you "Lazy Sunday 2," featuring Chris Parnell, who wants you to know that he's been working out a lot. Best of wishes, and hugs & air kisses! (via Saturday Night Live)

  4. Kristen Wiig Leaves Saturday Night Live In an Emotional Goodbye

    Officially Official

    What's been rumor for a while now has finally been confirmed -- after seven seasons on NBC's Saturday Night Live, Kristen Wiig is moving on. Last year, the superstar comedian proved she could draw an audience beyond the late-night institution with her script for and performance in Bridesmaids, the former of which got her an Oscar nomination. So, yes -- it will be sad to see Wiig's brand of demented but lovable characters gone from Saturday nights. But she's going to be just fine. That doesn't mean that some of us, including Wiig, didn't cry about it, though.

  5. Because It’s Nearly Valentine’s Day: We’re Gonna Make Technology Hump [Video]

    Romance

    Yay! After debuting with Emma Stone in November, "We're Gonna Make Technology Hump" is now a recurring sketch! This week, Saturday Night Live host Zooey Deschanel joins Andy Samberg in watching/making technology hump! I hope this gets its own movie. Because '80s-era technology humping is soooo weird and hairy, amirite? Retrotastic! I swear, I'm not a perv for Duck Hunt shooters. (via Saturday Night Live)

  6. Another Glorious Video From Stand Up to Cancer Featuring Celebrity Geeks

    For A More Civilized Age

    Back in September, we showed you the first video by Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) featuring a slew of celebrities acting out scenes from Star Wars like an adorable bunch of nerds. The organization teamed up with Lucasfilm for the promotion, and now they've released another! This one features a behind-the-scenes look at the first one, plus some more touching stories about how the actors -- Bill Hader, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg, Emma Stone, Aziz Ansari, Jaime King, Zach Galifinakis, Ken Jeong, and Samuel L. Jackson -- have been affected by cancer in their lives. (Stand Up to Cancer via Big Shiny Robot) Previously in Stand Up to Cancer

  7. Saturday Night Live Totally Geeked Out Last Night

    The Boob Tube

    Last night was Emma Stone's second time hosting Saturday Night Live, and there's a good reason she was invited back: she is very, very funny. But if she was going to be talking about The Amazing Spider-Man, then we were definitely going to be paying attention. And she did! And while I'm having extremely mixed feelings on her Gilda Radner-inspired bumper (pictured above), there was some pretty sweet geek material to talk about. Get ready for some Spidey action and technology -- humping!

  8. Melissa McCarthy’s SNL Hosting Gig Got Strong Ratings

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    The reviews are pouring in for Melissa McCarthy's hosting gig on Saturday Night Live last night, and they are a little crazy. In a good way. Generally, this time of the year, SNL's ratings drop off after the season premiere. This year, the ratings went up, by 4%. That's a pretty big deal. Especially considering that the season premiere was hosted by perennial favorite -- and now hosting record holder -- Alec Baldwin. And if you're wondering if McCarthy was a shrinking violet of a host, playing a lot of straight parts and letting the cast get the laughs, you'd be greatly mistaken.

  9. Melissa McCarthy Hosts SNL Tonight, Watch Her Promos Here! [Video]

    million dollar lady

    It's always great to see a woman host Saturday Night Live, but it's even better when that woman is a wonderful comedian. It is the Year of Melissa McCarthy after she killed it in Bridesmaids and then went ahead and won an Emmy for her work on Mike & Molly. Here's to hoping she gets some good sketches tonight! Above, her promos with Andy Samberg, and after the jump, her promos with Kristen Wiig.

  10. Joy of the Day: Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg, and Elmo

    it's time to play the music

    Elmo took up a guest spot on last night's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, engaged in a bit of monologuing, and revealed that there's definitely something strange between him and Andy Samberg. Sesame Street's 42nd consecutive season debuted this weekend, and focuses on a STEM curriculum (that's Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), so as you might have noticed, that's right up our alley. Or street.

  11. Things We Saw Today: An Amazing Welsh Star Trek Lesbian Wedding

    Things We Saw Today

    This might be the most specific instance of glorious and heartwarming geekery we've ever posted. The brides, Anita Bayliss and Margaret Wood, met on a Star Trek forum online (that was run by Wood) and fell in love. Fourteen years later, they held their wedding at Liberty Stadium in Swansea, Wales and required every guest to show up in a Star Trek costume. We wish them nothing but the very best and that they live long and prosper together for the rest of their years. (via Blastr)

  12. Celebrities Are Star Wars Nerds, Too [Video]

    For A More Civilized Age

    Celebrities are just like us! A group of Hollywood types -- Emma Stone, Seth Rogen, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Jaime King, and a few others -- got together to re-enact their favorite scenes from Star Wars as part of an awareness campaign by Stand Up to Cancer, which raises money for cancer research. Celebrities waving their nerd flags high is pretty fun, so we support this silly video effort. (Stand Up to Cancer via Nerdist)

We are happy to know that this shoot was successful and that he has all his limbs. Because sharks, man. Sharks. (BuzzFeed)

    Ask a Muppet

    As promised, we bring you the second part of "Conversations With Bert," in which Bert interviews Andy Samberg. Discussed: the subtle nuances of the perfect dry white toast joke, a continuation of the topic of socks, and Andy's favorite number. You can see Part 1 here. (The High Definite)

  15. Andy Samberg Is Hosting Shark Week

    Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

    Geek heartthrob/my "TV boyfriend" Andy Samberg has signed on as the host of Discovery Channel's 24th Annual Shark Week. He is also being named as the first-ever Chief Shark Officer (CSO), which means he's like a boss. A boss of sharks. Sharks with whom he might swim. According to the incredibly excited press release:
    As CSO, Samberg will host the network’s 24th annual SHARK WEEK celebration, cable’s longest running programming event and the official mark of summer. He will film on-air wraps for the weeklong event, host a SHARK WEEK special and may even take the plunge and dive with the apex predators ... Said Samberg: “I’m overjoyed about being appointed CSO. Everyone loves Shark Week. It’s the Bill Cosby of week-long television blocks dedicated to sea animals.”

  16. 10 Geeks Who Turned Geekdom Into Comedy Gold

    Power Grid

    Some might say that most comedians were some form of nerd or geek. Insecurity tends to breed comedy, usually when the target of a joke wants to beat someone else to the punch. But how many comedians have truly, honestly held on to the geekiest parts of their lives and then turned it into amazing comedy material? Only the best of the best. In honor of April Fools Day, this week's Power Grid takes a look at 10 geek comedians who had the last laugh and have been voted "Most Likely to Make a Reference to Something You'll Have to Google."

  17. Fake SNL Products That Were Actually Created

    IRL

    AdFreak reported today that a Mexican brewery has begun manufacturing the "world's first gay beers," Purple Hand Beer and Salamandra. Well, I knew this was already factually incorrect. Not the "gay beer" part. The "first gay beer" part. Because everyone knows that the first "gay beer" was Schmitt's Gay Beer, from the independent brewery of ... the Saturday Night Live writers' room. But gay beer is not the only SNL "product" that became real. Let's take a look back, shall we?

  18. Mark Zuckerberg Was Adorably Psyched to Be on SNL

    Oftentimes, when a public figure has been maligned in the press, they try to redeem themselves by showing that they have a sense of humor about themselves, that they're not the self-absorbed wanker we think they are. Saturday Night Live is usually a choice venue for redemption because most likely, the cast and writers have already had their shot, but they're a bunch of comedy nerds who don't really want to cause a stir with people they come into direct contact with (who are also billionaires). Sometimes, these public figures come on the show and fail. But Mark Zuckerberg? Success.

  19. An Invitation: Go Forth and Geek up Time’s ‘Most Influential People of 2010′ Poll

    When someone puts a general poll on the internet, we get Lara Croft Way and Computer Engineer Barbie; in other words, wonderful things happen. In this spirit, we'd like to give you some links to the more than 2 dozen geeky and geek beloved people on this year's list of 200 vying for a spot in an issue of Time through open internet poll. If it's going to be mostly unscientific anyway, let's tilt it in our favor!

  20. “Lazy Sunday” Goes Live On Fallon

    Back in 2005, the first viral video hit that put Saturday Night Live's Digital Shorts on the map was "Lazy Sunday," which touted the virtues of the Chronic(...les of Narnia). With former SNL cast member Chris Parnell a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the taped short was performed live for the first time last night:
