STORKS

ANDY SAMBERG (Junior) has a diverse range of comedic talents, and has emerged as a captivating leading man on the big and small screen. A Golden Globe and Emmy award- winning actor, producer and writer, he continues to achieve critical acclaim both in front of and behind the camera.

Fox selected the comedian to host the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. He most recently co-wrote, produced, and starred in the HBO special presentation "7 Days in Hell," alongside Kit Harington, and the Judd Apatow-produced film "Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping," which he co-wrote, co-produced, and stars in with his The Lonely Island partners Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone.

Samberg was last seen in the third season of Fox's hit comedy series "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," which was recently picked up for a fourth season. In 2014, the show won the Golden Globe for Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical and Samberg won Best Actor in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy for his role as detective Jake Peralta.

As young comics, Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone originated the highly successful digital short group The Lonely Island, a name coined from the cramped West Coast apartment the trio shared as upcoming comedians. After joining "Saturday Night Live" in 2005 - Samberg as a cast member and Taccone and Schaffer as writers and directors - The Lonely Island became responsible for re-invigorating the series, creating the popular "SNL Digital Shorts." Some of their notable shorts include "D**k In a Box," "Lazy Sunday," "I'm On A Boat," "Jack Sparrow," "YOLO" and "The Natalie Portman Rap." In 2007, the trio won an Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for "D**k In a Box" and a Peabody Award for the 2008-2009 season. In 2012, Samberg completed his seventh and final season as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live."

In 2014, The Lonely Island signed a development deal with Fox to incubate potential Fox and FX comedies on digital platforms. The venture was named the "Party Over Here" initiative. That same year, the group co-wrote the song "Everything is Awesome" for "The LEGO Movie," performed by Tegan and Sara in collaboration with the trio. It was nominated for Best Original Song at the 2015 Oscars.

The Lonely Island boasts 1.62 billion overall views on their YouTube channel, three Platinum singles ("I'm On A Boat," "J**z In My Pants" and "I Just Had Sex") and two Gold singles ("Like A Boss," "Everything Is Awesome"). The Lonely Island's debut album, Incredibad, released by Republic Records in February 2009, is the first comedy album to reach No. 1 on iTunes. Their 2011 sophomore album, Turtleneck & Chain, which debuted at No. 3 on Billboard, was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Comedy Album, and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "I'm on a Boat." They released their third LP, The Wack Album, in June 2013, featuring Hugh Jackman, Kristen Wiig, Robyn, Adam Levine, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Too $hort, Pharrell Williams, T-Pain, Billie Joe Armstrong, and Solange. Billboard's year-end issue recognized them as the No. 1 Comedy Albums Artists, No. 1 Comedy Albums Title (The Wack Album), No. 1 Comedy Digital Tracks Artist, and No. 1 Comedy Digital Tracks Title for "YOLO."

 In 2009, Samberg hosted the MTV Movie Awards, which were the highest-rated Movie Awards since 2004. Also in 2009, Samberg was nominated for the Outstanding Music and Lyric Emmy Award for his song "Motherlover," performed alongside Timberlake.

Samberg's additional film and television credits include the hit BBC Three sitcom "Cuckoo," with Greg Davies; Lee Toland Krieger's critically lauded film "Celeste & Jesse Forever," written by and co-starring Rashida Jones; "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and its sequel, alongside Anna Farris and Bill Hader; "Hotel Transylvania" and its sequel, alongside Adam Sandler; John Hamberg's "I Love You, Man," opposite Paul Rudd and Jason Segel; and Akiva Schaffer's "Hot Rod," starring Ian McShane, Sissy Spacek, Isla Fisher, Danny McBride and Hader.
