Last night brought the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards to Fox, and you can find the full list of big winners from television’s biggest night right here. But in addition to the awards being handed out, some fun was hand thanks to host Andy Samberg.
While Samberg’s jokes struggled here and there, his earnest charm and goofiness helped some of the more silly jokes land pretty well, unless of course you just don’t like the Saturday Night Live veteran.
And if you missed last night’s telecast completely, and you’re just looking to catch some of the funnier highlights, we’ve got Andy Samberg’s 2015 Emmys opening monologue, as well as the really fun opening musical number featuring our host joined by the likes of Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion and Jon Hamm. Speaking of Jon Hamm, there’s also an awesome Mad Men spoof that you should just watch for the shocking conclusion. Read More »

Right now you can catch Saturday Night Live veteran Bill Hader as the love interest of Amy Schumer in her hilarious summer comedy Trainwreck from director Judd Apatow. But this fall, he’ll be returning to the small screen with one of his fellow SNL pals.
Hader will be the new captain in the third season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the Fox comedy series focusing on a New York City police precinct that counts Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero, Joe LoTruglio, Terry Crews, Chelsea Peretti and the scene-stealing Andre Braugher among its ranks.

Briefly: Pack your bags for a trip to the Lonely Island next summer. Universal has set June 3, 2016 as the Lonely Island movie release date. Andy Samberg leads the cast as Conner, a rapper whose latest career setback forces him to reunite with his old boy band. Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer also star and will direct. The new date pits the Lonely Island boys against the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel and the romantic drama Me Before You.
Also starring are Tim Meadows as Conner’s “upbeat and overworked” manager and Sarah Silverman as Conner’s “sharp and sarcastic” publicist. Judd Apatow is producing. The film was previously referred to as Conner4real but was called the Top Secret Untitled Lonely Island Movie in Universal’s latest notice. [Deadline]

Jon Snow isn’t exactly known for his lively sense of humor, but actor Kit Harington clearly doesn’t mind getting in touch with his silly side from time to time. Even as Game of Thrones races toward another (we assume) grim finale, HBO has released the first funny promo for Harington’s other HBO project, 7 Days in Hell.
The Christopher Guest-style mockumentary centers on a fictional tennis match that goes down in history as the longest ever. Harington and Andy Samberg play the exhausted rivals. Watch the 7 Days in Hell teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably heard about the special Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special that aired this past Sunday night. It was a three and a half hour trip down memory lane, featuring a true dream-team of comedy’s elite.
Among the many highlights came early in the show when a 5-minute video montage was shown of cast members’ first auditions. Not fake auditions, like we’ve seen in the past. The actual, real auditions for stars like Will Ferrell, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon as well as classic cast members like Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner and John Belushi. Here, you can see them in the auditions that would change their lives forever. It’s pretty special.
As a bonus though, there are also auditions from people who didn’t make the cut. They’re people you’ve definitely heard of who auditioned, but didn’t make the show.
Below, check out the Saturday Night Live auditions video as well a few of the other highlights from the special including Celebrity Jeopardy, Wayne’s World and more. Read More »
They’ve put their D’s in a box, had some lazy sundays, been on a few boats and now they sold another movie. The musical comedy trio Lonely Island – Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone – just sold an untitled comedy pitch to Universal set in the world of music. Judd Apatow will produce and Schaffer and Taccone will co-direct. The pair also co-directed Hot Rod, which starred Samberg, and you’d imagine that dynamic will carry through here.

The first teaser for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 introduced an island overrun by food/animal hybrids — the sort of place a hungry Jules Verne might scribble down in a notebook. A featurette showed off more of the “foodimals,” and now the full trailer for the film serves up a few additional glimpses of the weird beasts.
This trailer also gives more of a lead-in to the story, telling how the events of the first film are followed up in this sequel, and throws out quite a few more food puns. Read More »
