Shaq to Make Cameo in Adam Sandler Comedy

O’Neal will join a host of other celebs in the latest Sandler vehicle. The Wrap reports: “Famed New York Knicks fan Adam Sandler has drafted a division rival for his upcoming movie ‘Jack and Jill,’ as newly-acquired Boston Celtics center Shaquille O’Neal will appear as himself in the Columbia comedy, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap. The Big Shamrock (if you will) is set to make ‘a very small cameo’ in the film, which stars Sandler in dual roles as the titular twins and Katie Holmes as his wife. The story finds Bronx resident Jill traveling to Los Angeles to spend Thanksgiving with Jack and his family … and then refusing to leave, much to her brother’s dismay. The context of Shaq’s brief appearance is being kept under wraps, but with Al Pacino also set to play himself, it’s possible that the project could be littered with celebrity cameos since it’s set in L.A.”

    Don’t be alarmed CelticsNation-this is going to be standard operating procedure for the Big Shamrock. Hollywood comes with the package. I really don’t mind-I see absolutely no chance of him being a distraction. Guys like PDub, Ticket and Ray are strictly-business. Hell, if they can deal w/ Starbury (even though it was only for 1/4 of a season) anything’s possible. (pun intended)

    re: “He Got Game” you missed the point Jake..strictly biz as in not easily distracted. And Wayno’s right-Sandler’s act is tired.

  • xplore

    shaq was great in scary movie. GIVE HIM A STAR ROLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yesse

    I think Shaq should act more. He was more in the movies before, but now he hasn’t made alot of appearances.

    how dope would it be if there was a movie where shaq was neon boudeaux and ray allen was jesus shuttlesworth in the league? i guess they’d have to be old, but it could be fun. penny could be butch mcrae and be washed up by now and have beef with neon. denzel could get out of jail to try and convince them to retire instead of making another run at a ring because the warden is boning lebron’s mom. i dunno, i’m just brainstorming here.

  • total scrotal implosion

    Of course the warden will be played by delonte ‘extra hot sauce in the bag’ west

    Adam Sandler had alot of celebs playing themselves in ‘Funny People’, which wasn’t all that funny… except for the scene between Ray Romano and Eminem.
