Presenting Andy Samberg, Chief Shark Officer

"Shark Week" - a.k.a. the best seven days of the summer - has given us yet another reason to watch: First-ever Chief Shark Officer, Andy Samberg.

We caught up with the "SNL" star while he was on the set of his upcoming movie, "I Hate You Dad," to find out what it's like to swim with sharks and what he's got in the works with his digital-shorts cohort, Justin Timberlake. Doubles ice skating, anyone?

CNN: How does it feel to have the impressive title of Chief Shark Officer?

Andy Samberg: Well, it was a childhood dream, obviously. Even though I'm the first ever Chief Shark Officer, I assumed that someday they would invent that role and that when they did, I would be there and be completely qualified to be named it. It was one of those once in a lifetime things you get asked to do something that you never to be expected. FULL POST

11 most ridiculous Japanese ads with American celebs

The Internet is undeniably making the world smaller.

And while this is a great thing for friends trying to stay in touch years after moving away from each other, there’s a certain sect of people who must suffer while the rest of us thrive.

I’m talking, of course, about American celebrities who years ago starred in bizarre, unintentionally hilarious commercials in Japan (why Japan is the main purveyor of this advertising insanity, I have no idea), only to have the Internet unearth them for the whole planet to see.

Olivia Wilde: JoBros put a 'sex hex' on my house

Olivia Wilde isn’t getting any action - and it’s the Jonas Brothers’ fault.

The “Cowboys & Aliens” star, who recently moved in to the trio’s former Los Angeles pad, said it’s clear Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas placed a “no sex hex” on the home.

“We blame the Jonas Brothers for the lack of action happening in our house,” Wilde told Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday.

Han Solo, Chewbacca settle feud on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Two feuding costars you thought you’d never hear about - Harrison Ford and Chewbacca – addressed their “rift” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” this week.

Ford was plugging his new flick, “Cowboys & Aliens,” when a certain furry “Star Wars” co-star stopped by his dressing room to say hello. What ensued wouldn’t be out of place on a “Real Housewives” reunion special.

Friday's Top Five: Rock 'n' roll movies

Amy Winehouse’s passing is a reminder that so many music industry legends leave us too soon. For sad and mysterious reasons, it seems that many can’t make it past their 27th birthday.

Luckily, their stories are still with us in their music and, for some, also on film.

A few movies on this week’s list include rock bio pics. These have a pretty standard formula: The movies introduce the subjects before they were celebrities, and follow them as they rocket to fame and fortune.  In many cases, their lives either spiral out of control or result in some sort of tragedy (i.e. a first class ticket to rehab, an organ transplant candidacy, or an abusive relationship).

What are you favorite Rock n’ Rollas?  Here’s mine:

'The Ides of March' trailer released

We haven't seen many memorable political thrillers in the last few years, but, from the looks of "The Ides of March" trailer, we might finally have a drama we can get behind.

The film, starring George Clooney and Ryan Gosling, is based on Beau Willimon’s 2008 play "Farragut North," which is loosely based on Howard Dean’s 2004 political campaign. "March" revolves around Clooney's character, governor-turned-presidential candidate Mike Morris, and Gosling, who plays Morris' idealistic communications guru.

Academy favorites, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei and Paul Giamatti also appear in the flick.
