Every star or music group deserves a documentary, and that's just what Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island are kind of getting with their new movie, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
The Lonely Island's highly secretive project with Judd Apatow finally has received its first trailer and gives fans a first look at what they can expect—a ton of A-listers. Usher, Carrie Underwood, Simon Cowell, Adam Levine and even DJ Khaled make cameos, serving as the mockumentary's "experts."
"You tell me you didn't see him and say, 'He's the star,'" Usher says in an interview of Samberg's character, Connor4Real. (For real, that's his name in the movie.).
"This guy right here...he's going to make it big," adds Khaled, which, you know, makes Connor4Real's stardom a sure thing. But based on his dramatic entrances into sold-out arenas, Samberg's character really is that big—and requires a staff that large to boot.
While performing Connor introduces Levine's hologram, which obviously was "so expensive," but the Maroon 5 frontman is obviously worth every penny. The mockumentary also introduces viewers to some of Connor's staff, including his publicist (Sarah Silverman); his nemesis (Martin Sheen), his fans, appropriately named the Connfidants; his roadie (Bill Hader); and even his unicorn handler.
"I'd love to get Connor to the point where he's kind of like everywhere," Silverman, as his publicist, explains. "Kind of like oxygen or gravity or clinical depression. He's just everywhere."
As for why he needs more than 30 people on his payroll, Connor explains, "It takes a village to make me look dope."
