Comedian Andy Samberg just signed onto a new gig. Check that, a pop culture phenomenon that was watched by 31 million viewers last summer. The Saturday Night Live star will host Discovery Channel’s annual “Shark Week” this summer and will also take on the sparkling new title as the first Chief Shark Officer!
As reported by the Huffington Post, in a statement Andy explained, “I’m overjoyed about being appointed CSO. Everyone loves Shark Week. It’s the Bill Cosby of week-long television blocks dedicated to sea animals.”
Looks like “Shark Week” won’t be the only highlight of Andy’s summer! As he wraps up another season on SNL, his comedy rap group “The Lonely Island” will release a new album, “Turtleneck and Chain.” As if that wasn’t enough, Andy will team up with SNL alum Adam Sandler for their new movie, I Hate You, Dad. He’ll also share the silver screen with Rashida Jones in an upcoming flick, Celeste and Jesse. Sounds like Adam is a very busy guy!
