Jon Stewart Wonders If Adam Sandler Makes Any Decisions For Himself (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 11th 2011 4:00AM
Adam Sandler, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Any chance of talking about 'Jack & Jill' went right out the door when Adam Sandler walked onto 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) wearing a thick brown corduroy shirt. He explained that he was wearing it for his wife, who'd decided it was time he updated his look.

He went on to say that he'd hoped to stick around New York to catch the Jets game, but that his wife and kids told him that he could watch the game on television back in LA, so he was headed home instead. This led Jon Stewart to wonder when the last time was that Adam Sandler made a decision for himself.

According to Sandler, the sweet spot for independence is between 1AM and 6AM. That's when he's a wild man!

Adam Sandler's Daughter Told Him How to Get Paparazzi to Leave Him Alone (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 10th 2011 4:00AM
Adam Sandler, 'Late Show with David Letterman'When you hear celebrities talking in detail about their experiences out in public with the paparazzi, it sounds like it must be one of the most annoying experiences in the world. Unfortunately, as Adam Sandler pointed out on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), they have another guy recording video right next to them, so you can't even lose your cool while they're completely invading your life.

After a particularly relentless encounter when he was just trying to spend some time with his kids, his daughter presented a way that he could get the paparazzi to leave him alone. "Stop doing so many movies," she told him. And she's absolutely right, that would probably work pretty quick.

Adam Sandler Talks About How Excited Al Pacino Was to Be Working With Him (VIDEO)

Adam Sandler, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'You might not have expected to hear Adam Sandler's new movie 'Jack and Jill' being talked about in the same conversation as 'The Godfather,' but it happened not once, but twice, on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

First, Kimmel was marveling at how much screen-time Al Pacino had in the film. "I expected Al would be in the movie for like two minutes, but Al is in the whole movie," he said. "Al is in this movie more than he was in 'The Godfather.'"

Later, Sandler said that Pacino was excited to be working "with the great Adam Sandler." He then related a story about Pacino tearing up on the set, forcing them to stop filming. According to Sandler, Pacino said he was crying because "it hurts knowing Marlon [Brando] will never work with such greatness."

Last night on 'The Tonight Show,' Adam Sandler commiserated with Conan O'Brien over his NBC woes by relating a story of when he and Chris Farley were fired from 'Saturday Night Live.'

"My manager kept calling me, saying, 'You know, we should look for something else to do.' And I was like, 'No, I like 'Saturday Night Live.' It's fun there,'" Sandler said. "And then, all of a sudden, [Chris] Farley ran into my office and is like, 'We're getting fired!'"

Everywhere around the world, they're coming to celebrate Chanukah

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 10th 2009 6:30PM
If I were Adam Sandler, I would be peeing my pants right now. I also wouldn't be wasting my day whining about primetime game shows and getting fat from sitting in front of my computer twelve hours a day. And I'm sure I'd have an official "pants guy" who could provide me with a pair of pee-stain-free pants at the push of an intercom button.

Holy music uber-god Neil Diamond has resurrected Sandler's famed "Chanukah Song," a song first made famous during his stint on Saturday Night Live, in a cover song for his new Christmas album A Cherry, Cherry Christmas. He also put together an animated video of the Chanukah carol that's not only hilarious, but marks the first and last time the world will see a collaboration involving Diamond, William Shatner and OJ Simpson, until, of course, the fourth Naked Gun movie gets a green light.

Adam Sandler's 'Turkey Song'

by Scott Harris, posted Nov 25th 2009 11:42AM
It's almost Thanksgiving and you know what that means: slow roasted turkey, the warm company of family and a song about Sammy Davis, Jr.'s missing eye.

Yes, what better way to celebrate the turkey day than by listening to the beloved holiday tune, 'The Thanksgiving Song', by Adam Sandler? Since it premiered on 'Saturday Night Live' back in 1992, 'The Thanksgiving Song' has become a modern classic, mixing nostalgia with non sequiturs to somehow create just the right mood for a day of feasting and friends.

Right now on Cinematical

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jul 11th 2009 9:03AM
The folks at our sister site Cinematical are working hard to give you news and reviews of the best -- and worst -- the silver screen has to offer. Here are some of their musings on the latest blockbusters, indies, and everything in between:
  • I've never been a fan of all-nighters, and flat-out refused to do them in college. But movies about all-nighters are always fun. Check out the latest Cinematical Seven: Movies That Pull an All-Nighter.
  • I saw Borat the night it opened and thought it was absolutely hilarious. So why do I have absolutely zero interest in seeing Bruno? Cinematical bit the bullet: you can read their review here.
  • The summer of 1981 was the first summer I was alive, so I probably wasn't watching too many movies. However, there were some great ones that summer, like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Fox and the Hound! See what else came out when Cinematical continues to examine their favorite summers.
  • Are you headed to Comic-Con this year? Check out the newly-released Comic-Con 2009 schedule here.
  • I'm really looking forward to the new Judd Apatow movie, Funny People. You can check out the new red-band trailer here, plus a bonus Adam Sandler prank call circa 1991.

Why isn't Jan Hooks famous?

by Eliot Glazer, posted May 9th 2009 12:50PM
Radner. Louis-Dreyfus. Poehler. Fey. Shannon.

jan hooks snlSuffice it to say, the number of women who became famous on Saturday Night Live before graduating to solo success is few and far between. Sure, Gilda Radner can be considered a pioneer in the art of sketch comedy. And Julia Louis-Dreyfus undoubtedly honed her comedic skills before becoming a sitcom icon on Seinfeld. And, yes, Tina Fey can easily be considered a heroine to comedy nerds everywhere who have witnessed her climb from Weekend Update anchor to Mean Girls scribe to single-handedly decimating the vice presidential chances of one certain gun-wieldin', six-pack-totin' Alaskan governor.

But, sadly, the number of men who left Studio 8 for the superstardom of Planet Hollywood (not the theme restaurant) easily outnumbers the ladies. For every Amy Poehler, there's a Will Ferrell. And a Bill Murray. And a Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler (although, to be fair, there's also a David Gary Kroeger, A. Whitney Brown, and Charles Rocket for every Melanie Hutsell, too). (And for the record, no, you shouldn't recognize those names.)

The Daily Show: June 5, 2008 - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Jun 6th 2008 12:37PM
Sandler and StewartUsually respectable news institutions have been suffering after failing to fact-check breaking news. Entertainment Tonight is no exception to this, making a boo-boo after falsely reporting that Angelina Jolie's never-ending pregnancy has actually come to an end. This also knocked the credibility of Jon Stewart's "Ultimate Celebrity Baby Website" ("Is Jamie Lynne Spears' baby pregnant yet?... Verne Troyer: Sort of celebrity baby").

Jimmy Kimmel to air primetime specials

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 4th 2008 3:03PM
Jimmy KimmelThe late night comedian will be appearing during your primetime schedule. Starting tomorrow, Jimmy Kimmel LIve will run special half-hour shows each night that ABC airs the basketball finals. Special guests include: David Beckham, Edward Norton, Charles Barkley, Liv Tyler, Adam Sandler, Eminem, Shaquille O'Neil, Magic Johnson and New Orleans Hornets guard and 2008 MVP contender Chris Paul, among others.

Out of the celebrities mentioned, I'm most interested to see Eminem. I haven't seen the Real Slim Shady on TV in awhile. He's always a good interview though -- all that contrived hostility and testosterone in overdrive. Who are you looking forward to seeing? Or is Kimmel's fabulousness enough to get you to tune in?

The schedule is after the jump.

The Not Ready for Prime Time Players who made it to the big time: 1986-2006

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 24th 2008 12:04PM

The SNL cast of the early 1990s -- one of the most successful during the show's runAs AOL Television continues their look at the 50 Best TV Comedies -- Ever with numbers 20-11, we here at TV Squad are also looking at television comedy, but with a slightly skewed difference. Last week, we took a look at the Saturday Night Live cast members from 1975-1985 that made it to the big time. This week, we focus on the SNL casts from 1986 to 2006.

Aside from the first season of Lorne Michaels' return to the show he created and the 1994-95 season, this period was a very successful one for SNL, introducing a slew of characters and sketches that fans of the show still talk about today. It also produced a good number of Not Ready for Prime-Time Players who went on to bigger things in television and the movies (and some theater as well). Sometimes those bigger things were movies or television shows based on characters developed on SNL.

Sony Pictures: "You Don't Mess With The Zohan"

by Richard Keller, posted Feb 4th 2008 12:17AM

Adam Sandler is special agent/stylist Zohan

It's not baby-talking Adam Sandler, it's not sensitive yet funny Adam Sandler, it isn't even serious and angry Adam Sandler. It's Adam Sandler as Borat. Well, from the preview that was shown it seems like he's channeling Borat.

I guess Adam is taking a break from some of his more serious roles to go back to his wacky comedy roots. However, since this isn't Cinematical I'm not going to debate whether or not this is a good idea for Sandler. All I'm going to do is rate the preview. Eh, not that funny. Seen it all in plenty of other previews before. Maybe the movie will be better.

The Daily Show: July 19, 2007

Chuck and LarryFirst of all, a big congratulations to both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report for their multiple Emmy nods! Comedy Central must be very, very proud. I don't know if Jon will bring up the nominations any time in the near future, but I think Stephen will do a bit of boasting soon.

"Harry Potter and the Endless Build Up": Senior Literary Correspondent John Oliver chimed in on the Harry situation (Haha, I just made that up, right now. I'm so good. So very, very good) regarding spoilers. His spoiler joke, "Harry is decapitated by Ron, who is actually Voldemort's robot son", got a good laugh from me, but judging from the mild response from the audience, there weren't too many fans in the crowd. Oh, I just remembered... Back when the sixth book was about to be released, Rob Corddry filed an absolutely hysterical report about spoilers. For once, Comedy Central's website has a clip I want, so check it out.

An ode to Bob Barker from Adam Sandler - VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted Jun 23rd 2007 11:00AM

Adam Sandler woos Bob Barker on the 50 Years in television specialI know most of you are going through Bob Barker withdrawl, so I thought I'd post this little clip to brighten your weekend a bit.

It comes from Bob's 50 Years in Television special that aired back in May of this year. It's been 10 years since Bob kicked the snot out of Adam Sandler in Happy Gilmore and he reminisced by playing that classic clip. After that, Adam makes an appearance on the special and woos Bob with a poem specifically written for The Price is Right host's retirement.

It's a cute little moment, and it reminds us that Bob was more than just the man who kissed all of the women and gave away all those brand new cars. He also had a mean right and left hook.
