In the fall of 2005, Samberg, Taccone, and Schaffer joined the staff of NBC's late night variety show Saturday Night Live. Since then, The Lonely Island has been responsible for creating more than 60 SNL Digital Short films including the YouTube favorites "Lazy Sunday" (featuring Chris Parnell), "Jizz in My Pants", "I'm on a Boat" (featuring T-Pain) and the Emmy-winning "Dick in a Box" (featuring Justin Timberlake). Taccone produces much of the music for The Lonely Island including Lazy Sunday, "Dick in a Box" and many other tracks that appear on The Lonely Island's first album Incredibad which was released February 2009. As a director, Taccone is responsible for the SNL shorts MacGruber, Business Meeting, Sloths, Giraffes, and others. He also directed a MacGruber Pepsi commercial spot for the 43rd Super Bowl which aired February 1, 2009.

He also plays Guy #2 in "We Like Sportz", reprising the role from "Just 2 Guyz". Taccone played the lead role of Brett in The Lonely Island's The ’Bu, the group's record-breaking contribution to Channel 101, where he played a ninja who did not belong. The ’Bu, a parody of The OC, also starred Sarah Chalke (Roseanne, Scrubs) as Melissa and Andy Samberg as Aaron. In the group's first Channel 101 show, "ITV Buzz Countdown", Taccone played Chris Hoffman, a fictional VJ on a parody of MTV's Total Request Live. He made a cameo appearance in Role Models as Mitch from Graphics, in which he sings a karaoke version of the Scorpions' "Rock You Like a Hurricane", he co-stars in the Gnarls Barkley music video for the song "Who's Gonna Save My Soul".
Taccone appeared as Chaka in Universal's 2009 film Land of the Lost, starring Will Ferrell.
In August 2009, Taccone directed his first film, an adaptation of the Saturday Night Live sketch MacGruber.
Taccone was featured as part of the group male vocals on Lightspeed Champion's album Life Is Sweet! Nice To Meet You.
