When Hollywood star Adam Sandler got to know that his character in The Do-Over shares its name with his real lookalike, he ended up inviting the guy to the premiere. Sandler’s character’s name in the movie is Max Kessler, which also happens to be a real person who shares a likeness with the actor.
Kessler posted a split image of himself and the actor on Reddit with the caption last month. The caption read: “The name of Adam Sandler’s character in his new movie, The Do-Over is Max Kessler. My name is Max Kessler. Oh yeah, and I look just like him.”
Sandler, 49, saw the post and responded with an image of himself holding a sign that read, “But can you do this, Max?” The actor finally invited Kessler, 23, to the premiere of the film.
“Ok! You can come party with the better Max Kessler at the Do-Over premiere on May 16! Rock ‘n Roll!” Sandler’s sign read.
The actor was all praise for Max as they walked together for the premiere. “It’s a younger, sweeter, better version of me,” Sandler told Entertainment Tonight at the premiere. “He’s a good kid. He’s funny as hell and I was happy to meet him.”
