Andy Samberg is on Wikipedia!

Andy Samberg is on Wikipedia! He has his own page there, as I'm sure everyone does. Do you have a Wikipedia page?

Here are excerpts from this article:

"On September 13, 2005, the Lonely Island website confirmed that Samberg would be joining Saturday Night Live as a featured player... Samberg has had more prominence in non-live segments over live segments overall, including appearing as a young Chuck Norris, a hardcore gangster rapper in Viking apparel [in the Natalie Portman rap], a parody commercial for lettuce... in a game of spotting doppelgangers which results in Samberg being suddenly and illogically shot... [and in a] short [that] featured Samberg and Tom Hanks parodying the macho image of early 90's male groups such as Right Said Fred; both appear bald and sing to their lovers about their paranoia of harm done to their testicles. A live segment Andy was in involved him teaching a community class about how to use Myspace to internet predators and a concerned mother."

My introduction to the Lonely Island:

For those who don't know who The Lonely Island is, they are three budding comedians who did online short films on, they did a hit show, The Bu', on, they made three failed pilots, they started writing for MTV awards shows, they met Jimmy Falon, got introduced to Lorne, they were hired onto SNL, and they did Lazy Sunday, the Chronicles of Narnia rap.

Andy is a Saturday Night Live playa', Jorm is an SNL writer/producer, and Akiva is an SNL writer/director. Andy got the spotlight (and the other two didn't) because he was extra busy working the comedy clubs, which is pretty much the training ground for SNL actors. However, all three will hit the spotlight soon as they star in their first movie. Plus, Lorne would have to be crazy to not pull Jorma into the playa's club after their first season!

Well, Lorne was crazy. He promoted all the newbies to regular status (Jason, Andy, Bill, and Kristin), but he didn't bring up Jorma. It's understandable, because a lot has happened in the last two years with the cast changes. He better bring up Jorma next season! Pretty soon, the Lonely Island will be making movies full-time and won't have time for Saturday Night Live (Jimmy Fallon's dream).
