Adam Sandler is searching for his doppelganger teenage self. Sony Pictures and Sandler’s Happy Madison production company have announced that they will hold open casting calls for boys 13 to 18 years old who bear a strikingly similar resemblance to the Hollywood funny man.


The upcoming feature I Hate You, Dad will star Sandler, Andy Samberg, James Caan, Leighton Meester and, yes that’s right, Vanilla Ice. It tells the tale of an irascible father who moves in with his son and his son’s gold-digging fiancée. Thus, irascible father and gold-digging fiancée engage in a Battle Royale.


With regards to the Sandler role of “Young Donny,” casting directors are seeking one boy 13 to 14 years old, and another around 18 years old. Both must be dead-ringers for Adam Sandler at these ages.


The casting calls have been issued for Minneapolis, Chicago, Richmond, Virginia, and Charlotte, North Carolina, between April 16th and April 21st. If you are, or know of a boy who is Sandler’s doppelganger teenage self and cannot make these dates, never fear, as there is an electronic submission as well. Send an email to In the subject line, put name, age and place of residence. In the email body, put the boy’s name, date-of-birth, parent or guardian's name and contact info. Also include any relevant acting experience. Attach two recent colour photos, and perhaps, just perhaps, Mr. Sandler will come calling.


Principal photography begins June 2011 in Boston, with a scheduled release date of summer 2012.
