Next week, the beloved comedy trio Lonely Island will bring their talents back to the big screen with Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, a parody of behind-the-scenes concert films such as Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. The movie shot in secret last year, with the full title and premise being kept under wraps until the first poster and trailer were revealed back in March. Today we have new details about this comedy, revealing that of the Lonely Island's mentors has quite the unusual cameo appearance.
Andy Samberg stars as the pop mega star Conner4Real, with his Lonely Island cohorts Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone co-directing from a script all three of them wrote. During an interview with Billboard, the trio reveal they got some guidance from producer Judd Apatow on the script, and he even makes a full-frontal nude appearance during one scene in the movie. Here's what co-director Akiva Schaffer had to say about this unique scene.
"It's actually his dick in the window of the car. He wanted to show it because he was like, 'I've had this normal but really well-proportioned dick my whole life, and I've never shown it. And I'm afraid I'm getting older and going to lose the bod soon.'"
Since we don't know anything else about this naked scene, it isn't known if Judd Apatow shows his face, but we'll have to wait until June 3 to find out for sure. Andy Samberg also added that Judd Apatow, who produces alongside Rodney Rothman and the Lonely Island trio, helped them with story structure while pitching some "super funny s--t" for the movie. Last weekend, the first music video debuted from Popstar on the season finale of Saturday Night Live. Today, we have yet another music video.
The new freestyle music video dubbed "I'm a Weirdo" from Conner4Real (aka Andy Samberg) just debuted exclusively on Vevo, which you can check out below.
