Andy Samberg Takes on the World of Competitive Cycling in New HBO Mockumentary

Andy Samberg Takes on the World of Competitive Cycling in New HBO Mockumentary

John Cena seems to have found his calling when he takes a break from the squared circle to dabble in Hollywood. From Trainwreck to Sisters, comedy is definitely his strong suit. He will be continuing to prove that as part of the next HBO sports mockumentary, Tour De Pharmacy.

Featuring an all-star cast that includes Andy Samberg, Orlando Bloom, Maya Rudolph, Freddie Highmore, Dolph Lundgren, J.J. Abrams, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (among MANY others), Tour De Pharmacy delves into the world of drug use in professional cycling. Much like its predecessor 7 Days in Hell, Pharmacy looks like it is shot on video tape to give it that retro feel.

I can definitely see myself laughing from beginning to end of this film. The idea of cyclists doing nothing but screaming and getting into fights while at the same time trying to win a race is flat out hilarious to me. The cameo at the end of the trailer also gives it that self-awareness that will make it even funnier.

HBO is taking the SNL Digital Short format and turning into somewhat of a longer form product. Having Andy Samberg, who helped make the Digital Shorts the best part of SNL, as part of these mockumentaries is only going to make them get better and better.

Tour De Pharmacy premieres July 8th on HBO.

So what do you think? Will you be checking out Tour De Pharmacy and the obvious hilarity that will ensue? What sport would you like HBO to tackle next? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
