BIG DADDY

ADAM SANDLER (Sonny Koufax/Executive Producer/Screenwriter) recently starred in and co-wrote the megahit comedy The Waterboy, which broke numerous box office records with a No. 1 opening weekend gross of $39 million. It went on to gross $161 million in the U.S. alone. The success of The Waterboy was preceded by another hit film, The Wedding Singer, in which Sandler starred with Drew Barrymore.

Sandler's other film credits include Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison. As with The Waterboy, both of these hit comedies were based on Sandler's original ideas and co-written with Tim Herlihy, a former New York University roommate and current head writer for "Saturday Night Live." Sandler re-teams with Herlihy on Big Daddy, marking their fifth collaboration for the big screen.

The Brooklyn native began his career doing stand-up at local comedy clubs while still a student at New York University. After graduation, he was hired as a writer for "Saturday Night Live" and eventually became a popular cast member on the late-night show for five seasons.

Sandler's unique brand of humor has generated a tremendous following, garnering multi-platinum comedy albums and sold-out shows around the U.S. His fourth album, a follow-up to the popular "What's Your Name?", is entitled "Stanley and Judy's Kid" and is due in stores in September. The album consists of songs and comedy skits.

Sandler's next film is New Line Cinema's "Little Nicky." He also recently entered into an animation deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment. Sandler co-wrote and also serves as an executive producer on Big Daddy.
