And a review:
Moving on, Andy worked on yet another movie that first premiered a few months ago (he had a crazy movie-filming summer). In this one, he co-stars with *GASP* Adam Sandler, who is one of Andy's all-time biggest heroes! The movie's title, which had previously been changed 3 times before being settled on, is "That's My Boy", and the official release date is in June. Andy plays the Adam Sandler's character (Donny)'s son, Han Solo Burger.... Yeah. In the movie, Andy's dad had fathered him when he was still in middle school, and the mother was his teacher (played by Susan Sarandon, who coincidentally played Andy's mother in the "Motherlover" and "3-way" digital shorts alongside Justin Timberlake, remember??). Adam Sandler's character can't take care of his kid since he himself was just a kid, so Han Solo Burger was taken into foster care. The movie flashes forward 25 or so years later to when Andy's character has become successful in whatever he ended up doing, he is rich, and is getting ready to marry is fiance, played by Leighton Meester. Donny, having lived the rest of his life barely getting by, finds out his long-lost son is rich, and shows up right before the wedding in search of money. That's about all I know about this film!
Anyway, Andy and Adam Sandler showed up on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Sunday after the Superbowl to talk about the movie. There are three parts to the interview, two being on the first link, and the last on the second (enjoy!):
Aaaaand last but not least for today's post, there has been some last-minute change up about yet another Andy movie, "Hotel Transylvania". This is an animated film that is currently being worked on, and also stars Adam Sandler, if you can believe it. For the last few months, the creators were talking about how Miley Cyrus will be playing the part of Andy's love interest in the film, but it seems something else is up their sleeves now: Selena Gomez has replaced Miley! Not much of a difference, considering both are WAY too young to play Andy's love interest in a non-animated film, they have both been Disney Chanel stars, and everyone in the world either REALLY hates them, or REALLY loves them. Personally, they don't concern me too much, but if either one is going to be in a movie with Andy, all I care about is that the bring their A-game!
Here's the link to the review of Selena Gomez:
That's it for today. A long, boring post, I know, but since TAE left without warning and all for a whole month, it was kinda necessary. I will try my best to post as often as possible, but until then, please enjoy the fact that the Andy Samberg Blog is NOT dying!!
