It seems that Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake (pictured here) don’t want to cover up their “Dicks” at the Emmys.
Columnist Marc Malkin of Eonline is reporting that Timberlake and Samberg are in talks to perform their “Saturday Night Live” skit “Dick in a Box” at the Primetime Emmys Sept. 16. The broadcast’s host is Ryan Seacrest.
A source reports that things may have hit a snag because the show’s producers have apparently asked Timberlake and Samberg to change the words of the racy ditty to make it more family friendly.
Malkin writes: “I’m told the singer and the actor have balked at the request.”
When the holiday-themed skit debuted on “SNL” in December, the word “dick” was bleeped out 16 times. The skit features Timberlake and Samberg bearing gifts attached to their man parts while crooning to their ladies.
“Dick in a Box” is nominated for a Grammy for Original Music and Lyrics. In a sign of The State Our Culture Is In, here are the other contenders: “Family Guy”‘s “My Drunken Irish Dad,” “MADtv’s “Merry Ex-Mas” and “Scrubs” for “Guy Love” and “Everything Comes Down to Poo.”
The Original Music and Lyrics award will be bestowed Sept. 8 at the Creative Arts Emmy ceremony, a week before the Primetime Emmys.
Reps for Timberlake, Samberg, Fox, “SNL,” and the Emmys did not comment.
