— -- Andy Samberg has a new title to add to his resume: Emmys host.
The actor is set to host the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards this year, it was announced today.
“It’s wonderfully fitting that we have Andy Samberg, an Emmy Award winner himself, as our host for this year's Primetime Emmy Awards,” said Bruce Rosenblum, chairman and CEO of the Television Academy.
“Andy has excelled in all aspects of the television universe, both from behind and in front of the camera. His humor, insights and charisma will be an exciting addition to our annual celebration of television’s best and brightest," Rosenblum said.
Samberg, 36, won an Emmy in 2007 while he was on "Saturday Night Live," and currently stars in the Fox series, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." He won a Golden Globe for his role in the show last year.
“Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers!” he said. “Like, in general you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road. Also, if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should strongly consider becoming one this year, because I’m hosting, and it’s gonna be a wild ride. So buckle your seat belts.”
The Emmy Awards will take place Sept. 20, and nominations will be announced July 16.
