I had about 24 hours to mull over Home Team, the movie in which Kevin James plays Sean Payton in the most ridiculous sports film casting example in recent history.
So many people wonder “How did this happen? And the answer is simple: Adam Sandler. Sandler’s “Happy Madison” is producing the movie, and if there’s one thing we know about Sandler, it’s that he’ll always put his friends in the movies. Sandler is basically your best friend if you’re an actor because he’s going to make you work forever, even if that doesn’t make sense. Like, I don’t know, Kevin James playing Sean Payton.
It made me think. What if Sandler had been tasked with making films about the coach of EVERY NFL team. What would it look like? Now keep in mind that we’re not trying to pick the right people for the role. We’re trying to reproduce James as Payton here, so these have to be people that Sandler uses in his films over and over again whether they match or not.
