It's just a matter of time until the musician is a full fledged comedian. Josh Groban, Weird Al, and kind of/sort of Jamie Foxx have all made the transition from musical prodigy to comedic funnyman.
Deadline reports that Universal has picked up a film from Judd Apatow Productions that will star Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. Better yet, it will be a musical. So many people's dreams just came true.
The three will produce the film alongside Apatow. Duties are said to be split between Taccone and Schaffer. Both musicians directed many of the videos seen on the team's YouTube channel as well as SNL. Scaffer was also the one who directed the cult film Hot Rod starring Andy Samberg. He even took the reigns of the 2012 sci-fi comedy The Watch. Taccone directed MacGruber and episodes of Parks and Recreation and Samberg's Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
