The years have been good to Andy Samberg: The 33-year-old funnyman has lopped off his shaggy mop and joined the ranks of Saturday Night Live veterans who have gone on to do bigger and better things.
Already a member of the comedy group The Lonely Island, Andy got his big break in 2005 when he joined the cast of Saturday Night Live, with fellow TLI members Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer signing on as writers. From his hilarious raps — immortalized on The Lonely Island’s 2009 debut album Incredibad — to small-yet-amusing roles in movies like I Love You, Man and Friends With Benefits, Andy has established himself as one of the funniest dudes in Hollywood.
Only a couple weeks after officially retiring from SNL, Andy has already landed his next big TV gig: He’s set to star on a six-part BBC comedy series called Cuckoo as “a slacker full of outlandish, New Age ideas.” Amazing, right?
If you need an Andy fix, like, now, his latest film, the Adam Sandler comedy That’s My Boy, hit theaters Friday, June 15.
