Biography

After gaining a cult following with the online sketch group Lonely Island, Andy Samberg shot to stardom with the Gen-Y crowd in 2005 when he was added to the cast of Saturday Night Live. His first crack at the big screen came in 2007, when he was cast as the lead in Hot Rod, a comedy about a motorcycle daredevil directed by Samberg's Lonely Island cohort Akiva Schaffer. He voiced the lead animal in the animated Space Chimps, and appeared in I Love You, Man. The SNL Digital Shorts he created with his longtime collaborators helped make him one of the most popular members of the cast during his stint on that show and in 2012 he got to play opposite one of the venerable program's most celebrated alumni when he was cast as Adam Sandler's son in the comedy That's My Boy. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
