Max Kessler is a real person! Yes, he is more than a character from Sandler’s new movie. Also, yes, he really looks like Adam Sandler!
This was brought to light after Kessler posted his image on Reddit and captioned it: “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.”
49-year-old Sandler didn’t just see the post but also responded to it. He held a sign that said, “But can you do this, Max?” and made a funny face.
Of course, Kessler replied and finally, Sandler sent an image holding an invitation sign. This was no ordinary invite! It was an invite to the premiere of the movie.
“Ok! You can come party with the better Max Kessler at the Do-Overpremiere on May 16! Rock ‘n Roll!” Sandler’s sign read.
Monday, the two were seen together on the red carpet.
“It’s a younger, sweeter, better version of me,” Sandler said at the premiere. “He’s a good kid. He’s funny as hell and I was happy to meet him.”
