When asked why he is suited for the role, Samberg said, "I think I'm Chief Shark Officer for obvious reasons. I love sharks. I'm a really bad swimmer. Justin Timberlake passed. What else? Mainly the third one."
Samberg is a Berkeley native. He graduated from Berkeley High School and went on to spend a few years at UC Santa Cruz before transferring to New York University.
