Andy Samberg's Future in Film

Andy Samberg is a mystery to me. I liked him fine on Saturday Night Live, and I really enjoyed (most of) his Digital Shorts. And the first Lonely Island album, Incredibad, is actually quite great. But I don't find myself that interested in his transition to film: I worry there's not enough of a persona there to make me care. For Gawker, I decided to predict what sort of career Samberg is going to have in film. To make it more fun, I compared him to many Saturday Night Live alums to see if any of them might be a good fit. You can read my findings here.
