Comedian Andy Samberg is a married man after exchanging vows with his fiancee on Saturday (21Sep13). The former Saturday Night Live funnyman married his partner of five years, Joanna Newsom, at a ceremony in Big Sur, California in front of family and friends, as well as singer/actor Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel.
Samberg, who proposed to Newsom in February (13), previously said of his wedding planning, "So far, it's been nothing but stress and joy. The joy is the lady herself. The stress is the planning. We tried to go small and it was just impossible. There's too many relatives, too many friends."
Funnyman Andy Samberg and singer/songwriter Joanna Newsom will wed this week (ends22Sep13), according to the comedian's new TV co-star Terry Crews. The Expendables star let the news slip while promoting their new show Brooklyn Nine-Nine on TV in America on Tuesday (17Sep13).
Asked about his relationship with his co-star, Crews said, "He's getting married this week."
Crews, who will miss the wedding because he's too busy promoting his new comedy series, admits he has had a heart-to-heart chat with Samberg about the sanctity of marriage.
He tells Access Hollywood Live, "I've been married 24 years, so I'm like, 'Dude, be serious, this is real.'"
News of Samberg's engagement to his girlfriend of five years broke in February (13).
That wasn't a d**k in a box, it was a ring! Comedian Andy Samberg just got engaged to Joanna Newsom (and no, she didn't throw the ring on the ground). A rep for the Saturday Night Live alum and Lonely Island member confirmed to Us Weekly that the 34-year-old is getting married to his singer-songwriter girlfriend, 31. They have been dating for five years.
Samberg was into Newsom even before they met through mutual friends. "He liked her music and would go to her shows," a friend of Samberg's told the mag last year. "He had the biggest crush on her." The feelings were mutual for Newsom, as well. "She respects what he does with his songs," the friend said. "She's so proud of everything that he has accomplished [with Lonely Island]."

Hollywood.com reached out for comment but did not immediately get a response. Now that Samberg is headed down the aisle, maybe this will inspire new material for Lonely Island. Perhaps some marital sketches and songs? We know Samberg can put a new spin on old romance, thanks to his unforgettable "Mother Lover" collaboration/sequel to "D**k in a Box" with his recently married friend Justin Timberlake:
Even a celebratory "I Just Got Engaged" video in the same vein as "I Just Had Sex" would be awesome:
But we hope Samberg doesn't get any ideas about recreating "The Golden Rule"... we still have nightmares about that one.

That tweet has sent shockwaves through Hollywood - someone stole her T-Mobile Sidekick account back in February, 2005 and caused chaos in celebrity circles by gaining access to the numbers and details of the rich and famous.
The prankster posted numbers of numerous celebrities online. Those whose direct numbers were revealed included Christina Aguilera, Ashlee Simpson, Vin Diesel and even San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT?
Eddie Murphy is terrific in Imagine That as Evan Danielson an overworked financial advisor who is so immersed in his job he’s forgotten about Olivia his daughter from an estranged marriage. When he is given custody for a week and he gets too busy with work she retreats into her fantasy world imagining a group of princesses who as it turns out really know their way around big business. When Dad figures out his daughter’s special blanket and otherworldly friends have the magic touch for investment advice he becomes an instant superstar in his firm. But his newfound success soon sets up a confrontation with his chief rival Johnny Whitefeather whose presentations are often full of (Red) bull.
WHO’S IN IT?
From Dr. Dolittle to Daddy Day Care Murphy has carved out a solid alternate career as a star of family-friendly movies. But none of those previous works play to his overall talents as a comedian better than Imagine That in which he gets to merge his kid’s fantasy world with office politics for optimum laughs. The purely delightful premise in which Murphy faces off with skeptical business partners is perfectly toned to his talents and allows him to be widely appealing for both kids and their parents. As daughter Olivia newcomer Yara Shahidi won out over 3000 girls and is wonderful a real charmer who goes toe to toe with Eddie. Thomas Haden Church provides the perfect foil for Murphy as Whitefeather a guy who plays off a phony Native American heritage and spouts nonsensical advice like he’s E.F. Hutton. As bosses vying for Murphy’s newfound talents both Ronny Cox and Martin Sheen play it straight lending the appropriate gravitas to their roles. Nicole Ari Parker is winning in her few scenes as Olivia’s mom.
Murphy’s comedic tendency to go way over the top (i.e. Norbit) is kept in check with great results. He’s totally believable as a stressed-out businessman and his trip into his daughter’s imagination is handled realistically mined for the optimum number of laughs without sacrificing credibility. Credit for this goes to Karey Kirkpatrick (Over the Hedge) an animation director making his live-action debut for keeping cartoonish antics to a minimum and emphasizing heart and the father/daughter bond instead.
The scenes between Murphy and Shahidi are so effortlessly charming and real that you wish there were more of them. (One highlight is when father teaches daughter to sing Beatles songs which are heard throughout the film.) It’s the kind of thing Bill Cosby did so well on TV but could never pull off in movies. Murphy does.
Murphy is in top comic form all the way and is never better than when he berates Littlefeather’s hokey presentation then comes up with one based on his daughter’s doodlings that shows off the comic genius we haven’t seen in this actor’s comedy vehicles in quite a while.
NETFLIX OR MULTIPLEX?
Imagine That is a family film in the truest form and ripe for an outing with your kids. If you don’t have any rent one and go.
Wallace busted in dustup
Veteran 60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace, 86, was handcuffed and driven to a police station in New York Tuesday after arguing with city inspectors over where his driver had parked, The Associated Press reports. The dispute began as Wallace was leaving a Manhattan restaurant and saw two inspectors questioning his driver, whom they said was double-parked. The Taxi and Limousine Commission told WCBS-TV that Wallace became "overly assertive and disrespectful" and interfered with the inspectors. At one point, Wallace even lunged at one of the inspectors, according to the commission. The other inspector then detained Wallace and drove him to a police station, where he was issued a summons for disorderly conduct, AP reports. He was later released.

The list, which for the first time includes an international faction, was compiled by a panel of fashion experts and Esquire editors.
Zeta-Jones stalker tested by psychiatrist
A Los Angeles judge ruled on Tuesday that the woman accused of sending death threats to actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is to be examined by a psychiatrist to determine whether she is fit to stand trial, Reuters reports. Criminal proceedings were suspended in July after Dawnette Knight, 32, took a barbiturate overdose in her jail cell and her lawyer accused Zeta-Jones of driving Knight to attempt suicide. Knight, who is said to be obsessed with Zeta-Jones's husband Michael Douglas, faces a 25-count charge of stalking the actress through threatening letters and phone calls over an 18-month period. A Los Angeles judge said the psychiatrist appointed on Tuesday should file a report by Sept. 15 on whether Knight is competent to stand trial. Knight is in jail in lieu of $1 million bail.
Lil' Kim launches designer watch line
Rapper Lil' Kim has entered the world of fashion, launching her own line of designer watches, AP reports. "I love fashion and wanted to create a designer watch collection that would translate my personal style into a product which would appeal to stylish women everywhere," said Lil' Kim, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, in a statement Tuesday. The rapper will work with celebrity jeweler Jacob Arabo to manufacture the watches, which will range in price from $1,800 to $3,500, AP reports.
Janet Jackson makes Will & Grace appearance
Janet Jackson is set to make a guest appearance as herself on the hit NBC show Will & Grace, AP reports. In an interview with Access Hollywood, Jackson said her part involves Sean Hayes' character, Jack McFarland, "trying out as a dancer." "There's a little bit of a routine and they go on to do their thing from there," she said. "It's so funny. I have to catch myself because I'm cracking up in rehearsals. It's just funny to watch them. It's hilarious." The episode will air on Sept. 23.
Buffy, Grace clear charges of indecency
Speaking of Will & Grace, the show was recently cleared by the FCC on charges of indecency (let's just hope Janet behaves herself), along with the now defunct Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Reuters reports. The complaints filed by the Parent Television Council and Americans for Decency were dismissed in a 5-0 vote because the commission found the shows didn't violate indecency regulations. The episode of Will & Grace in question involved a "woman photographer [who] passionately kissed [a] woman author and then humped her (what she called a 'dry hump')," the complaint read, while the episode of Buffy showed the characters Spike and Buffy fighting before having sex. Both shows aired in primetime.
