Las sorpresas siguen: Adam Sandler

Adam Richard Sandler es probablemente el actor más rentable de Hollywood en la actualidad. Este cómico judío neoyorquino dio sus primeros pasos artísticos en el mítico Saturday Night Live (la mayor cantera de humoristas de la historia), y con "Waterboy" rompió todas las taquillas dando comienzo a una fulgurante serie de números 1 que le llegaron a convertir en el actor mejor pagado del cine. Su estilo se encuentra próximo al humor hiperbólico y provocador de los Farrelly, tal y como demostró en "Little Nicky" por ejemplo, pero también ha realizado comedias románticas como "50 primeras citas", o papeles más serios como en "Spanglish" junto a nuestra Paz Vega. Hace ya un par de años la revista Details sorprendía a propios y extraños al anunciar que Sandler era un secreto simpatizante de la derecha, pero el propio Adam se encargó de confirmarlo con sus declaraciones, asi como asistiendo recientemente a los actos de campaña de Rudy Giuliani, el alcalde republicano de su ciudad que pretende concurrir a las presidenciales de 2008, y a quien por cierto dio un "cameo" en "Ejecutivo agresivo".

It just so happens that, in its September issue, Details magazine is outing Hollywood GOP sympathizers. The magazine claims that, in order to address the celebrity deficit that the GOP currently has, the Republican National Committee has unveiled a list of stars who veer toward the Republican side of the aisle. Some of the names, like Jessica Simpson and Shannen Doherty, are already known. But others are more unexpected, like Adam Sandler and Freddie Prinze Jr., although Prinze’s wife Sarah Michelle Gellar has been known to lean right in the past.

Giuliani Event: Actor-comedian Adam Sandler was among the industry figures at former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s crowded fund raiser Monday night at the home of Bill Simon, with the prospective 2008 candidate offering much talk about security and Iraq, as well as getting ahead of the caustic political climate.
