Shaq Confirmed in Cameo Roll for New Adam Sandler Film JACK AND JILL

     August 31, 2010

Love him or hate him, Shaq certainly knows how to stay relevant. With a long career spanning many teams in the NBA, most recently with the Boston Celtics, it’s safe to say he’ll go down as one of the most notable players in history. Combine that with his four rap CD’s (one of which went platinum), his film career in movies like Kazaam and Steel (for which he got a Razzie nomination), and his TV show Shaq Vs., one could argue that he’s also one of the most bankable athletes ever. All this proves good for Adam Sandler’s new movie Jack and Jill. The Wrap is reporting that Shaq, alongside Al Pacino, will play himself in a brief cameo in the latest collaboration between Sandler and director Dennis Dugan.

Jack and Jill is the new upcoming Dugan-Sandler movie. The duo have previously worked together on such films as Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, and most recently Grown Ups. The story is about Jill, a Bronx resident who flies home to L.A. to spend Thanksgiving with her brother Jack. However much to Jack’s dismay, Jill doesn’t leave and comedy ensues. Given that Pacino and Shaq have been confirmed for cameos, it wouldn’t shock me to hear that more celebrities get confirmed as being in the movie over the coming months.
