Woo-oo, new DuckTales star Bobby Moynihan’s having a moment.

On a very special episode of The Mothership, USA TODAY’s geek culture podcast, the former Saturday Night Live regular comes aboard to chat about his role as Louie, one of Scrooge McDuck’s three adventurous nephews on Disney XD’s DuckTales reboot (premiering Saturday).

Moynihan also discusses being a new father, his memories of being on SNL for nine years, his Star Wars fandom and playing a 40-year-old single dad on the CBS fall sitcom Me, Myself & I. (For those who want to hear him in action, check out the usatoday.com exclusive premiere of a clip from DuckTales.)

Plus in our Nerd Alert segment, Brett and Brian discuss the pros and cons of Porgs, the furry penguin-like creatures that first appeared in a behind-the-scenes video for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and now have divided the Internet.
