Andy Samberg originally made a name for himself on the comedy sketch show SNL. He appeared as a breath of fresh air at the time, being one of the younger cast members at the time bringing with him his satirical and comedic musical styling with his band The Lonely Island. Of course, SNL is the place for slapstick, over-the-top humor, though some are just recognizing that the actor could have a lot more to offer.
Though occasionally still appearing in the odd SNL sketch, Samberg has left those days behind him. The comedic actor has worked in a number of films, many of which are animated such as the popular Hotel Transylvania franchise. Many of his live-action films have unfortunately fallen flat, with Pop Star: Never Stop Never Stopping, a satire on pop stars such as Justin Beiber, becoming a box office bomb grossing only $9.5 million against its $20 million budget.
