PEOPLE's Ones to Watch: Andy Samberg, Sam Claflin & More Top This Year's List

Originally posted 10/09/2013 07:30AM

Whether a goofball comedian like Andy Samberg or an Oscar-contender such as Fruitvale Station's Michael B. Jordan, this year's coveted list of PEOPLE's Ones to Watch has something for everyone.

Samberg, who stars in Fox's new police comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, says the family member most proud of his success is his father.

"There's a joke now that my dad will somehow find a way to work into a conversation anywhere with anyone that I'm his son," says the actor, laughing. "Probably to try and leverage it to get free stuff. Where they live that happens about one in every thousand times because no one cares, but bless his heart for trying."

Hmmm ... Idol Gets Barely a Mention by Fox TV at Upfronts

Andy Samberg's Cop Comedy Shows Promise for Fox's Fall Lineup

Originally posted 05/13/2013 07:35PM

Very little time at Monday's FOX 2013-14 upfront presentation was devoted to the elephant in New York's Beacon Theater – America Idol's troubled, near-completed season – except to compare the show's long-running success to Gunsmoke's.

This caused a moment's pause, not only with the thought that the incredibly influential, always buzzed-about Idol could ever be gone, but also with the reflection that at some time in the future it would be completely irrelevant. Ah well.

The bulk of FOX's smoothly clockwork presentation, of course, kept an eye on that future, at least a few months from now, with clips of upcoming shows. Nothing looked as remotely silly as last year's short-lived Mob Doctor, which was a relief, and there were several premieres that will have people talking:

Performing songs from his new album The 20/20 Experience during a two-hour show, the pop star was supported by his wife Jessica Biel and pals like Jason Sudeikis, Olivia Wilde, Andy Samberg, Joanna Newsom, Brooke Shields and Uma Thurman.

Biel, dressed in a navy tank top and white pants, had a blast rocking out in the VIP mezzanine area during the show, which was sponsored by MasterCard. "She knew all the words to his songs and was dancing the whole time," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She looked very proud."

New Couple Alert? Rose Byrne & Bobby Cannavale Hold Hands at Portlandia Party

Rose Byrne & Bobby Cannavale Hold Hands at Portlandia Party in N.Y.C.

New couple alert?

Rose Byrne and Boardwalk Empire's Bobby Cannavale clutched hands as they surreptitiously made their way through the crowd inside the Hall of Ocean Life at New York's American Museum of Natural History Monday night. Though the duo never posed for pictures together on the red carpet, they looked to be very much together and enjoying each other's company at a bash to celebrate IFC's hit comedy Portlandia's upcoming third season (Jan. 4, 10 p.m. ET). (When asked if they were dating, Byrne's rep had no comment.)

The soiree, which began with a screening of two upcoming episodes from the series and an introduction by its stars and writers, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, continued into the vast ocean-themed room, lined with hundreds of models of sea creatures and bathed purplish-blue lights as a 94 ft. long blue whale hung from the ceiling.

A who's who of the comedy world stars – Martin Short; David Cross and wife Amber Tamblyn; and most of the current cast of SNL – mingled in the large room, chatting with each other and with fans (there was no separate VIP section) and grabbing drinks from the large bar in the center of the room or nibbling passed Hors d'oeuvre such as bite-sized waffles with Camembert cheese.
