Having stolen the limelight on SNL over the years with their digital shorts, The Lonely Island comedy trio head to the big screen with next week’s mockumentary/parody “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping”. Shot in secret last year, the film stars Andy Samberg as rapper Conner4Real.
Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone co-direct from a script all three of them wrote, while famed comedy filmmaker Judd Apatow serves as producer. Surprisingly it seems Apatow also has a cameo in the film and during an interview with Billboard, Schaffer revealed that not only did Apatow offer guidance but also makes a full-frontal nude appearance during one scene in the movie:
“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.'”
Nothing about the setup of the scene is known at this point, we may not even see Apatow’s face, but we’ll find out either way when the film opens next Friday. To celebrate the one week out mark, the film has released yet another music video entitled “I’m a Weirdo”.
