After years of working on television and in film Adam Sandler is finally getting his due. The comedian and actor will be awarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame according to the Daily News. Sandler will receive the honor on Tuesday, and it will celebrate his career, which spans two decades and consists of films that have grossed $3 billion worldwide.
The ceremony will take place at 11:30 a.m. in front of the W Hollywood Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard. He will be presented with his star by Henry Winkler (“Happy Days”), who co-starred with Sandler in the 1998 hit The Waterboy. This event conveniently takes place just 10 days before the release of Sandler’s latest film, Just Go With It.
Sandler is following in the footsteps of Donald Sutherland who received his star a week ago, right before the release of his film The Mechanic. Is anyone else surprised that Sutherland got his star a year or two after his son Kiefer? Does that seem strange to anybody else? Sometimes the placement and the timing of the recipients don’t make sense to us.
What do you think of Adam Sandler receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? Is it deserving?
