Andy Samberg - New SNL bio

Andy Samberg has a new bio and image up on the Saturday Night Live bio page.

It says:

Andy Samberg is in his second season on “Saturday Night Live.”

Samberg, along with “SNL” writers Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, are best known for their innovative series of “SNL Digital Shorts” during the past season. The trio – who are childhood friends from Berkeley, California – brought viewers absurdist commercial spoofs like “Lettuce” and faux music videos, featuring Natalie Portman performing an expletive-laden rap and Oscar winner Tom Hanks channeling Right Said Fred. “Lazy Sunday” – a collaboration between “SNL” alum Chris Parnell and the trio – was an undeniable online phenomenon that amassed over one million hits on within days of airing on “SNL.” The short “burrowed its way into the nation's cultural consciousness” (The New York Times, 12/27/05) and sparked its own legion of Internet imitations.

Thanks to their innovative contributions to “SNL” and their previous work as the Los Angeles-based comedy trio “The Lonely Island,” Samberg, Schaffer and Taccone were honored by Wired Magazine with a “Wired Rave Award” in 2006, alongside geneticists and fellow online pioneers.
Samberg recently filmed “Hot Rod,” his feature film debut. The film is produced by “SNL” executive producer Lorne Michaels, directed by Schaffer and stars Taccone, alongside Oscar winner Sissy Spacek, Ian McShane (“Deadwood”), Isla Fisher (“Wedding Crashers”) and fellow “SNL” castmate Bill Hader.

Starting out in Los Angeles, Samberg worked with Schaffer and Taccone as “The Lonely Island,” whose short films were showcased on the popular “untelevised television network” show and website: Channel Some of their popular shorts included the “O.C.” parody, “The ‘Bu,” and their full length pilot, “Awesometown.”


By the way, here's my lame attempt at a music video like Andy's SNL Digital Shorts. It's called Bucket Full of Cheese:
