EXCLUSIVE: Andy Samberg will have another fellow Saturday Night Live alum along for the ride in the upcoming Lonely Island movie. Tim Meadows has joined the cast of Conner4real, about a rapper (Samberg) whose album bombs and leaves him with little career choice other than to re-form his old boy band. Meadows will play Harry, Connor’s constantly upbeat and overworked manager. Judd Apatow is producing the film, which is directed by and co-stars Lonely Island troupers Jorma Taccone and Akiva Shaffer. Universal’s Conner4real takes a potshot at fluffy music documentaries including Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and Katy Perry: Part Of Me.
Meadows was an SNL cast member throughout the 1990s and was a regular on NBC’s just-canceled comedy Marry Me. Other recent credits include the Grown Ups films and TV’s The Goldbergs, Bob’s Burgers and Suburgatory. He is repped by APA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
