"Andy Samberg is an amazing comedian, just as offbeat as IFC," said Jennifer Caserta, IFC President and General Manager. She expressed enthusiasm for Samberg's chance to emcee the Spirits, calling it a "real treat" for their viewers.
 
Although he is best known for his numerous years on the cast of "Saturday Night Live," Samberg played opposite Rashida Jones in Lee Toland Krieger's "Celeste and Jesse Forever," which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and earned one nomination at the Spirit Awards.
