INT: Andy Samberg
Andy Samberg is known as one of the current not ready for prime time players on Saturday Night Live who is getting his first shot at comedic leading man status in the upcoming HOT ROD. He portrays Rod Kimble, a wannabe stunt man living in his fathers shadow and constantly trying to gain acceptance from his a-hole step-dad. Yet he seems to fail every single time all the while still believing that he can be great. And his salute to FOOTLOOSE as he goes to his quiet place is absolutely amazing or maybe just bizarre.
When I sat down with Andy and we discussed his inner animal, he seemed to be much more grounded than one would imagine. His continued work with "The Lonely Island" along with HOT ROD director Akiva Schaffer and co-star Jorma Taccone has made YouTube.com a place to look for comedy as does his work on SNL. And now, taking on a role originally written for Will Ferrell, he lets loose. And you can check it out when HOT ROD opens this Friday.
