Andy Samberg to appear on Sesame Street

Stars Flock To "Sesame Street"



PBS's "Sesame Street" is bringing in the celebrities for its 42nd season, which kicks off September 26. The Hollywood Reporter has learned Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Seth Rogen, Robin Williams, Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, Mark Ruffalo, Mila Kunis and Sofia Vergara will all be appearing, among others. We can only imagine the types of skits these talents will have on the children's show.

It’s season 42 of Sesame Street come Sept. 26 (check your local listings), and the guest list could not be hotter.



Among those on tap: Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Robin Williams; up-and-coming actresses Emma Stone, Mila Kunis, and Amy Adams; Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Rico Rodriguez; Community’s Joel McHale and Ken Jeong; The Office’s John Krasinski; late night hosts Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, and Conan O’Brien; musicians Elvis Costello and Bruno Mars; The Daily Show’s Samantha Bee and Jason Jones; The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki; funny guys Seth Rogen and Andy Samberg...

The new season focuses on a STEM curriculum, an acronym for science, technology, engineering and math.

Hopefully, the celebs joining in on the fun are a little bit nerdy; this season will focus in on math and science, part of the nation's push to emphasize those subjects.

A sample sketch, per the press release: “Telly, Elmo and Rosita are playing Shape-O-Bots, robots that transform into shapes to help people. Andy, a guy in need of shapes, played by Andy Samberg, rushes in several times and asks the group to transform into octagons, triangles, pentagons and rhombuses!” I feel like that should involve a leotard, but it probably won’t.

===============================

Awesome! I love the show, and I'm glad they're going to hit math and science more. Can't wait to see Andy in action?

Of course, Bert already interviewed Andy Samberg:

Who would you want Andy to go head to head with on Sesame Street?

Enjoy!
