Stay tuned for my full Q&A from today's interview with Andy Samberg of "That's My Boy," opening Friday. For now here's a small sample, including where Samberg dined in Chicago last night and if he thinks popular "SNL" guest host Justin Timberlake will ever take on a full-time role on the show.

Do you have any favorites in Chicago, places you have to go when you're here?

I went to Lula Café last night. It was delicious.

What did you order?

All kinds of schnizz. I had the duck, it was delicious. We had some kale. Had a couple cocktails. I’m not going to front. I’m not going to front on you.

What are the chances Justin Timberlake becomes a cast member, even just for a year?

Zero. [Laughs] He doesn’t need to. He can just show up and destroy it and have everyone talk about him for 10 years.

Every time he’s on, people say he would be a great cast member.

Yeah. Well, there’s a lot of people that are super talented that have other careers already. [Laughs] I think Timberlake’s probably making pretty good money doing other stuff.
