andy-samberg-GQ-wiseass-of-the-year.jpgAndy Samberg, formerly of “Saturday Night Live” and now starring on FOX’s new comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” is GQ’s “Wisea** of the Year.” For his interview in the men’s magazine, they asked him about his favorite movie cops, to which he said:

Axel Foley, “Beverly Hills Cop
: “Eddie
Murphy’s gotta be considered one of the best ever. Certainly with my
character, Jake Peralta, there’s the rogue spirit of circumventing
protocol that you have with an Axel. And Axel’s partner — Judge
Reinhold — he’s not on my Mount Rushmore of detectives in comedies, but
certainly on my Mount Rushmore of people that have been caught
masturbating on film.”

John Kimble, “Kindergarten Cop”: “Wait — is he a detective in that, or is he just a cop? I think he’s a
detective. They were looking at the poster for that and were like, ‘If
it’s ‘Kindergarten Detective’ and his last name is
Schwarzenegger, that is just way too many syllables. It’s going to look
like a Russian movie.’ Also, no one wants to see a movie called ‘Kindergarten D***.'”

Ace Ventura, “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”:Of course. He’s the top-top. Because he’s a pet detective, which, in
this world, is more needed than ever. I’ve watched that movie probably
more than any movie on earth. Jim Carrey would make a good partner for
Jake. Him or Judge Reinhold. Just, you know, so I could walk in on him
jerking off.”

The Men of the Year issue of GQ is on newsstands now.
