'It isn’t a handsome look': Adam Sandler reveals he has a different look in his next film with the Safdie brothers
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: In October, Adam Sandler confirmed he’s reuniting with the Safdie brothers for another flick. The actor worked with Josh and Benjamin Safdie on the critically-acclaimed 2019 release 'Uncut Gems'. The film received widespread critical applause, especially for Sandler's performance, which several reviewers described as the best of his career. 'Uncut Gems' tells the story of Howard Ratner (Sandler), a Jewish-American jeweler and gambling addict in New York City's Diamond District, who must retrieve an expensive gem he purchased in order to pay off his debts.
Sandler has been in many chick flicks like: 'Grown Ups', 'Just Go with It', '50 First Dates', so it is safe to say this will be another notch on his chick flick belt. Most recently Sandler was seen in Jeremiah Zagar's 'Hustle' where Sandler was seen as an NBA scout who discovers a raw but talented basketball player in Spain (Juancho Hernangomez) and tries to prepare him for the NBA draft. However, Sandler was seen teasing about his new and upcoming role in the Safdie brothers' new movie.

During a recent interview with Variety on the red carpet of Gotham Awards, Adam Sandler says he has a different look in his next film with the Safdie brothers but it isn’t a handsome look. Apparently, there will be no prosthetics involved and it is going to be tough.
Regardless, Josh Safdie of the Safdie brothers was seen paying tribute to Adam Sandler at the Gotham Awards. He said, “You pour so much humanity into every single moment. That’s why I cried every single day on set knowing that you get shot in the face at the end of 'Uncut Gems'.”

Adam Sandler lit up the 32nd annual Gotham Awards during his acceptance speech for the performer tribute award. The occasion marked Sandler’s first major stop of the awards season, campaigning for his performance in the Netflix basketball drama 'Hustle.' “I told my daughters Sadie and Sunny, who are 16 and 14, that I didn’t write a speech and they said phrases like, ‘Rude’ and ‘You’re mean,'” Sandler began. “Daddy’s f*****g tired. Daddy works hard, calm down. They were like, ‘Can we write your speech, Daddy? So you got something to say.’ I said, absolutely.”
Sandler then pulled out the growly southern accent that he has often adopted for formal speeches, “Dear well-dressed dignitaries, highly educated hipsters, and various other plus-ones of the Gotham Awards, thank you for giving our daddy, Mr. Adam Sandler, this prestigious lifetime, all-time, primetime G.O.A.T. achievement tribute award.” "While daddy is with you tonight, we’re doing everything we’re not allowed to do when daddy is home, like eat his Yodels or try on his Spanx or, dare we say, laugh out loud at Ben Stiller movies,” he joked. “The last time daddy caught us chuckling away at the ‘Meet the Parents’ trilogy, he immediately stormed into the room he calls ‘The Screaming Room,’ which we just call ‘the shower,’ and bellowed out the phrase, ‘Only the Sandman makes people laugh. F**k every other comedian.'”

Sandler then took a victory lap around his entertainment career, namedropping beloved films like 'Billy Madison,' 'Big Daddy,' 'Punch-Drunk Love' and 'Uncut Gems.' “Daddy’s silly film career began in 1988, formed by two guiding principles: people in prison need movies too and TBS needs content,” he concluded.
