Adam Sandler News
Adam Sandler; best known for his work in super hit movies like Billy Madison, Anger Management and Longest Yard. He is probably one of the busiest persons in Hollywood, churning out films by the dozen through his Production Company Happy Madison. Adam stars in, produces and also co-writes a lot of his movies.
Currently, he is working on the film ‘Just Go with It’, in which he is starring alongside Jennifer Aniston for the first time; he has also written the movie. Adam Sandler handles the job of Producer, Writer and Actor with ease, constantly switching between roles by doing two or three films at a time. Adam Sandler is famously known to work with his close friends who include Rob Schneider, David Spade, Chris Rock and Kevin James. This motley crew of actors is sometime referred by the name of ‘Team Sandler’.
Adam started his career as a Stand-up Comedian. His first major role on T.V. was the role of Smitty on ‘The Cosby Show’, even though he appeared only in four episodes it was enough for him to get noticed by Dennis Miller. Miller suggested his name to Lorne Michaels producer of Saturday Night Live. Adam was first hired as a writer and later he started appearing on the show. Sandler was later fired from the show in 1995 alongwith Chris Farley by N.B.C.
His first starring role came in the movie ‘Going Overboard’, but it failed to create any buzz. Adam then tasted success with ‘Billy Madison’ which was loved by the audiences despite the negative reviews it received. Adam was here to stay. He went on to taste a lot of success with his later films Bulletproof, Wedding Singer and Happy Gilmore. And he hasn’t stopped since.
Even after dozens of films, Adam continues to work in many movies, juggling between his many roles as Actor, Producer and Writer.
