Andy, this is remarkably disappointing.

That’s the problem with nerdy-hot guys. They can so easily tip over into just nerdy.

Everything here is bad, from the cut of the Bar Mitzvah suit to the Rachel Maddow hair and glasses. He looks so cute on his show (which is hilarious, by the way). Maybe he should consider just dressing up like his character from now on. Or hiring a stylist, at the very least. This pretty much screams DIY styling. We’re pretty sure he found that tie at the bottom of his closet.

    You don’t know how happy it makes me that you two watch and like “Brooklyn 99”. It is indeed hilarious and he is indeed adorable on it.

    So is Chelsea Peretti. (“Did you make the cover of Hair Pulled Back Magazine?”)

    • Jenna621

      He looks fantastic on that show. I started watching it and couldn’t get into it, but my sister-in-law talked me into trying it again and holy crap I’m so glad I did. Brilliant.

    • saintebeuve

      “He prolly wants to talk to you about your shirts not being tight enough, prolly.” (Spelling intentional!)

      You know she and Samberg were childhood friends? I love that they wrote it in to their characters.

    • misstressofsylar

      Indeed. Loved that show off the bat. They have the most hilarious cold openings. STD and dog or wife anyone?

    • enuma

      Melissa Fumero is the most adorable thing on TV, especially when her face is stuffed like a chipmunk with shame burgers.

  • Sarah

    Aw. That suit is needlessly embiggening. His head is cute, though.

    • Christine Hart

      Yeah he looks like he gained a little weight, but you can’t tell if its him or the suit.

      • demidaemon

        I’m going to take a wild stab here and guess the suit.

    • Imasewsure

      I love that new word, embiggening. We have to remember it and use it often

      • It’s from the Simpsons. It’s a perfectly cromulent expression.

      • DebbieLovesShoes

      The word embiggening is a WIN. And clothes that are needlessly embiggening are a category unto themselves! I’m not at all good at men’s fashion, and even I had the gasp reaction at how horrendously the jacket fits.

  • msdamselfly

    I appreciate the 100% nerd look– I think it’s cute.

  • majorbedhead

    He’s on my irrational dislike list and I can’t tell if it’s helping him or hindering him that I’m getting serious Ira Glass vibes from him. Because Ira Glass is my imaginary radio boyfriend….

  • JauntyJohn

    Well… he dressed up. That’s something.
    It is possibly the most unflattering suit he could have found — like he actually went out looking for one, which might be his goofing on this event — but oboy that is not a good look.
    You’re a handsome, young TV Star! There’s no need for this nonsense.

    • saintebeuve

      I’m adopting “there’s no need for this nonsense” as my mantra. It’s so… versatile! It could definitely fit in the TLo repertoire!

  • MilaXX

    He’s alway just been nerdy to me. He also annoys me in that can only take very small doses of him way that I can only tolerate Will Ferrell . As a result I can’t bring myself to watch his show. This look is exactly what is expect him to look like when he tries to dress like a grown up.

    • saintebeuve

      That was my reaction before I watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine but it’s really startlingly funny. They actually play up to that expectation, I think, for the first five or ten minutes – and then Andre Braugher’s character enters. And it is glorious.

      • MilaXX

        I like everyone else, but I cant stand Andy. It’s a deal breaker for me.

        • saintebeuve

          That’s fair!

        • lolaleen

          I said the *same* thing about 30 Rock because I can’t STAND Alec Baldwin, but once I gave it a shot I loved it. Just try one episode.

        • Trent

          1,000% Co-sign. The last few years on SNL he became so insufferably smug that I couldn’t stand him. I gave B99 a shot because I like everyone else on it, but I still cannot stand Andy. So I watch About a Boy on Tuesdays instead (and love it).

          Topic? Clearly Men’s Wearhouse had a clearance sale and Andy was first in line…

          • MilaXX

            and you know he’s gonna stick the joint up with extra doses of smug tonight. I’ll also bet good money Timberlake makes a cameo.

  • kimmeister

    I’d been wondering if his show was any good ever since it won . . . something or other (Golden Globe? Emmy? Can’t remember) and have considered putting in my Netflix queue. Sounds like I will.

    • slnelson98

      Yes watch, it gets better with every episode! 😉

  • jw_ny

    First thought on seeing THAT suit was it’s from his Bar Mitzvah. I’d like to think the funny man was having a joke on us, but doubt it. I do <3 this nerdy man though, Rachel Maddow hair, nerdy glasses, and all… 🙂

  • FibonacciSequins

    I like his look from the calves down – nicely cuffed pants, a splash of color from his socks, and newly shined oxfords.

    • JauntyJohn

      True, we rarely see the pants hem so right.

      • demidaemon

        Too bad everything else is so wrong.

  • demidaemon

    This suit makes him look so big and I’m pretty sure he is skinny hot, though I couldn’t tell here. NOPE.

  • Imasewsure

    I was going with Carl Sagan but “Bar Mitzvah suit and Rachel Maddow hair and glasses” is even more (in)appropriate.


  • ashtangajunkie

    Sad suit. But he’s still delightful.

  • rubigirl

    I’d still hit that! (Love that show and love him!)

  • DesertDweller79

    I, too, love B99. I think it is really funny. And he’s great in it. Yeah, he does look really good on the show.

    I don’t know what happened here. He looks so bland.

  • Elizabetta1022

    7th grade math teacher. And not the cute one.

    • alyce1213

      Oh, I think he’s the cute one. The cute, nerdy one.

      • Elizabetta1022

        Usually I do, too. He’s my type…but just not in this picture.

  • Kane

    Is it just me, or does it look like he gained weight & that his weight gain happened only between his top jacket button & the top of his inseam?

    He looks like he’s entering his second trimester.

  • nannypoo

    The only thing I like here is the hair and the glasses.

  • Truthiness2U

    Let me add to my love of Brooklyn 99. I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did, and that was in part how schmarmy I thought Andy’s character was going to be, but the show did well with toning that down, and now I like his character, and love the show.

    Alas, none of my good feelings about all of that, can translate to liking this look…beyond the hair and I do happen to like the glasses. But yeah, that suit isn’t good, and the fit of it, isn’t good.

  • Denise Alden

    Piling on with the Brooklyn 99 love. Never thought I’d watch it, let alone LOVE it. And I’m surprised by how adorable I find him here. Maybe my meds need some recalibrating.

  • Wendi126

    Andy Samberg takes a break from acting to continue his Talmudic studies

  • VicD

    Jr. Associate at a mid-sized law firm…

  • Jeremy Thomas Porta

    He’s so sexy. I think he should just lose the clothes altogether.

  • DebbieLovesShoes

    I actually really like the glasses.

  • alyce1213

    Bar Mitzvah suits are funny. Usually, we see them too short and tight because the Bar Mitzvah boy invariably has a growth spurt (accompanied by voice change) the week before the event, after the suit’s been bought. Anyway, this is too wide and too short, which is confusing.
    But he’s adorable and I love Brooklyn 99.

  • MartyBellerMask

    I like the frames and the shirt is. . . promising. But Heavens to Betsy, that is a horrible suit and the tie is worse.

  • unbornfawn

    The fit on that jacket is sad. He looks like a sweaty accountant.

  • H2olovngrl

    He is *this close* to being super cute! I wish a good stylist would get a hold of him.

  • Gatto Nero


  • “Everything here is bad, from the cut of the Bar Mitzvah suit to the Rachel Maddow hair and glasses.”
    What you got against my future bride Rachel Maddow?

  • OhSheila

    I totally have those glasses…on. with my prescription in them.right this moment. I don’t know how to feel about that.

  • Danielle

    The glasses are cute, I’d make passes at him.

  • He looked amazing doing his monologue on SNL on Saturday night. He should ditch this look and stick with that one.
    And Brooklyn 99 is our family’s favorite and best. Hysterical writing and amazing cast.

  • BitterOldQueen

    Just ick.

  • Beto

    He’s hot but he looks fat here. Sorry
