Andy Samberg seems to be like he’s having a fairly good quarantine, based mostly on his look on Conan. His new film Palm Springs (out now on Hulu) has obtained good evaluations, and he’s often serenaded by his spouse, grillmaster Joanna Newsom. “I hear her play and practice because she’s gotta stay in ‘harp shape,’ which is a thing she tells me is a real thing.” On the present, Conan factors out that Samberg not solely starred in Palm Springs, however he’s additionally an government producer. He should, due to this fact, have ideas on when “people can go back to acting and making things again,” because the coronavirus pandemic has shut down movie and tv manufacturing. So Samberg lays out his grand imaginative and prescient for the way forward for Hollywood:
“I have a feeling … look — it can go one of two ways: We’ll get it under control; there’s a vaccine; we come up with some great protocol that actually feels safe. Or, and hear me out, everything goes mo-cap. Motion capture. And we all get Ready Player One–style mo-cap rigs in our homes, and you can audition this way, and then actually shoot this way. It’s like Avatar-style, but it’s in your little pod,” Samberg proposes. Sounds truthful sufficient, till he retains going.
“And, like Ready Player One, with a diaper. Because you don’t want to waste time by leaving set. That’s also from Ready Player One the book — not for all you posers who just saw the movie. They cut out the diaper thing. Also the virtual sex, they cut out. Such a sellout, Spielberg. Unbelievable. Anyway, I think if you can get a really good mo-cap rig and a little blue screen or green screen room in your house, with one of those 360-degree cameras, and a diaper, a big ol’ diaper, a big, like, multiple trips diaper …”
At this level, Conan cuts him off asking, “wait, so you’d be using the diaper over and over again without changing it?” Samberg solutions, “Yeah, so you can just shoot for days, you know? Like in Ready Player One the book.” It’s good to know that Andy Samberg is captivated with precisely three issues: his household, Prepared Participant One, and diapers.
