ANDY SAMBERG: I help in the editing, so my brain is so scrambled in terms of the order. Where do you see it now, and where do you see it heading? The cool thing about the show is that, in my opinion, the characters are so well drawn by the writers that even when they make progress they still have their ruts that they get in, just like real people. MELISSA FUMERO N: Has Amy become more relaxed around Holt this season?
We shot one last week, and then I cut a new one tonight, and then the other one’s gonna air tomorrow. So they’ll jump ahead a bunch of steps through the force of extreme and intense events, that call for action and maturity and those sorts of things. MF: I think their relationship has definitely evolved.

While Drew is back on the market after ending her marriage to Will Kopelman in April, the actress and mom of two has been vocal about her fondness for falling in love; over the years, Drew has dated fellow Hollywood stars like Justin Long, Luke Wilson, and director Spike Jonze, as well as musicians Fabrizio Moretti and Eric Erlandson — and she's even guilty of "ghosting" on Christian Bale after one date back in the '80s!
The show is helped in no small measure by one of the strongest comedic ensembles in recent memory, including Andy Samberg as perennial man-child Detective Jake Peralta, Melissa Fumero as Jake’s crush/colleague, perfectionist Amy Santiago, and Andre Braugher as their unflappable Captain Raymond Holt.
I chatted with Samberg and Fumero recently about how their characters have evolved since we first met them, and what the future holds… [Laughs.] N: How would you say the relationship between Jake and Holt has changed?
NERDIST: What’s in store for Jake as this season draws to a close? To be honest, I could disappear and the show would still be incredible. Goor is really great at collaborating — [executive producers] Dan Goor and Mike Schur — and they bring me into the fold a lot. I feel like I’m able to affect the show a lot on set, and I have so much experience in that from SNL and doing the shorts. N: How will Jake’s love life fare by the end of this season? But I feel like that’s the only thing I’m not allowed to talk about. In the beginning it was antagonistic, but Holt quickly became a surrogate dad to Jake.
He attended Berkeley High School where he explored his interest in creative writing. After graduation, Samberg attended University of California, Santa Cruz.
