Samberg who returns as the voice of Jonathan in the fourth and final installment in Hotel Transylvaniafranchise, which begins streaming on Prime Video on Jan. 14 realizes his favorite animated films from childhood might also age him.
"This is going to date me, but I used to watch the animated version of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with my dad a lot," he explained. "The first movie I ever went to the theater to see was The Black Cauldron, which I recently looked up and saw that it was a huge bomb and everyone hated it. I was like, 'I loved it.'"
Samberg's 4-year-old daughter whom he shares with his wife Joanna Newsom appears to be following her father's footsteps with her love of movies. She is currently "obsessed" with The Nutcracker.

Following the premiere of his holiday competition series Baking It with fellow SNL alum Maya Rudolph in December, the comedian is looking forward to focusing on some unusual fitness goals in 2022.
"I think I'm going to try to take off some muscle," he joked. "It's gotten out of control, especially during these times where I've just been focusing on my bod. If you're in comedy and you get too ripped, it's a turnoff."
