I woke this morning to the news that Saturday Night Live and The Lonely Island are being accused of stealing material from a St. Louis production duo. Though it pained me to do so, I had to tear down several of my Shy Ronnie wall posters. Even the homemade ones.

Producers Aleric Banks (aka Rick the Ruler) and Monique Hines allege that they submitted their music to The Lonely Island‘s album through a mutual contact. The group then stripped the lyrics to create the hits “Shy Ronnie (featuring Rihanna)” and “Like a Boss.” The producers were initially thrilled that the songs became so popular. However, when payment didn’t come through, that delight quickly morphed into the frownies.

The plaintiffs say that before the release of Samberg’s album and skits, a Universal Music Group subsidiary label sent them a “producer declaration” form. Banks filled it out by stating that as the writer and producer of “Like A Boss,” he was a 50 percent owner of the copyright. Banks says he got a response letter claiming that he had entered into an agreement with Lonely Island that only entitled him to a 25 percent copyright interest.

Nevertheless, Banks says he hasn’t received any producer royalties nor any profits from SNL‘s exploitation of his music. NBC Universal, Samberg, The Lonely Island, and Universal Republic Records are now being sued for willful copyright infringement and unjust enrichment. (THR)

NBC Universal has no comment, but it sounds like they took the contract and…. THREW IT ON THE GROUND!!!

If you’re like me, the combination of the words “Gwyneth Paltrow,” “hosting,” and”Saturday Night Live” caused you to unplug your television until Sunday morning. Which means you missed this fun Digital Short starring Andy Samberg and Pee-wee Herman.

In the short, Samberg coaxes Herman off the milk-only wagon and learns that the beloved children’s entertainer has a bit of a problem. No, not that one. A drinking problem this time. Further proof that tequila changes a man. One minute your making ice cream soup with a room full of puppets, the next you’re assaulting police officers and respected news anchors. Totally reckless. Some drinking buddies are just bad for one another.

Adam Sandler To Play Andy Samberg’s Dad? http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/adam-sandler-to-play-andy-sambergs-dad/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/adam-sandler-to-play-andy-sambergs-dad/#comments Fri, 14 Jan 2011 06:37:54 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=16688 These two together in a movie?

Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg have a lot in common. They’re both Jewish, they’re both”Saturday Night Live” breakout stars, and they both have maybe done one too many musical bits in their career. (Can we have a brief moratorium on “zany” raps filled with camera mugging?)

One difference between them is Adam Sandler has had many box office hits, whereas Andy Samberg has never successfully top-billed a movie; Hot Rod crashed and burned with $13 million domestic. However, Samberg’s fortunes may change with a newly announced project. Happy Madison is developing a film called I Hate You, Dad, where Samberg would play a man about to be married whose dad, played by Sandler, moves in with him on the night before his wedding and seriously pisses off the bride.

Just checked their birthdays on Wikipedia. So… Sandler was 12 when he became a father? Eh, fancy Hollywood make-up technology and maybe some of that Benjamin Button CGI will fix the lack of an age difference. Actually, this project sounds promising, especially with a script partially written by David Wain and Ken Marino (Role Models). We’ll see if Happy Madison decides to greenlight this, or the Kevin James vehicle Fartasaurus Rex. (Hollywood Reporter)

The Lonely Island is back with another SNL Digital Short, and like mature, grown men, they’re boasting about their sexual conquests in song form. They always manage to churn out a catchy beat with a glossy, rap cliché-riddled music video. Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone take the verses this time around with Akon handling the infectious hook. If you look hard you can catch Akiva Schaffer, the third Lonely Island member, giving the the guys a pedicure. Let’s all scream this groove from the rooftops next time we’re lucky enough to lay with a girl, in the biblical sense.

‘SNL’ Vid Picks: Shy Ronnie 2, Jon Hamm Does Best Cry Ever Guy http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/snl-vid-picks-shy-ronnie-2-jon-hamm-does-best-cry-ever-guy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/snl-vid-picks-shy-ronnie-2-jon-hamm-does-best-cry-ever-guy/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I don't watch "Saturday Night Live" anymore, but I do watch the popular videos that make their way to the web the following Monday. This week, Jon Hamm hosted with musical guest Rihanna. Of course Andy Samberg and Rihanna did a digital short sequel to "Shy Ronnie" entitled "Ronnie and Clyde." It's not as funny as the first, but Rihanna is hot and I like that she returns to the bank to snag hostage Jon Hamm so she can bang him. Jon Hamm also appeared in a sketch in which he parodies Best Cry Ever Guy. If you don't know who that is, shame on you for not being more addicted to the Internet. You can check out the original video here and then the 'SNL'-ized, Hamm-ized version after the jump.

I feel like the Andy Samberg shorts are on a totally different level than the rest of the show. His heightened and irreverent humor always shines through, and he seems to get away with a ton of sh*t that never succeeds in the live skits. The Twizzle Wizzle short below is no exception. Imagine if The Wiggles did on television what I'm sure they do when they go back to their homes every night. Forced happiness wears on a person...
