This is great! Andy kept his career alive with his digital shorts (and CD and hosting MTV Movie Awards), and it looks like it caught up with him with a few movie deals, including a huge potential one like this. Congrats Andy!
Hilarity shall ensue!
Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg are currently in talks to star in Columbia Pictures/Happy Madison's upcoming comedy
The story is about "a father who moves in on the eve of his son's wedding and promptly begins feuding with the bride-to-be." Sandler would play the dad, and Samberg would star as his son.
Wow. We can't believe that Billy Madison has gotten to a point where he's playing "the dad" in a movie. What happened to the angry kid swinging golf balls in Happy Gilmore???
Thanks to Anony for the scoop!
Meanwhile, in 2011 Adam has Just Go With It next month (he gets Jennifer Aniston to lie for him), Zookeeper coming (a Kevin James followup to Paul Blart) and Jack and Jill (where Adam plays both roles) with Katie Holmes and Al Pacino.
In 2011, Andy has supporting roles in What's Your Number (Anna Faris & Chris Evans) and Friends with Benefits. (Justin Timerlake and Mila Kunis). So a prominent role in "I Hate You Dad" is exactly what Andy needs for his career. Let's see if it happens!
What do you think?
