Susan SarandonIf you’ve been keeping track of Adam Sandler’s career (and in 2011, who hasn’t?), then you have probably already heard that he’s going to be playing Andy Samberg’s dad in the upcoming film I Hate You, Dad. This is an interesting proposition because Samberg is a young comedian who has utilized digital media to skyrocket his career into the stratosphere and Sandler is an aging funnyman who hasn’t done anything good in over a decade, yet still keeps making billions of dollars on name value alone. What will happen when the irresistible force meets the immovable object, funny or no funny?

We’ve got a while until we can judge, but until then there is a lot of casting news about who else will be filling this film out. Susan Sarandon is an actress you might have heard of, she’s been in a movie or two, and she’s been cast as a sexy teacher who has a romantic entanglement with Sandler’s character. The premise of the film is that Sandler’s father character moves into his son’ s house right before the kid is going to get married. So seeing as Samberg is already cast as the son, that means there needs to be a fiancé as well. Never fear, because Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester has been cast in that role. Lucky Andy Samberg. Add in the fact that Beverly Hills 90210 alum Ian Ziering and white boy rapper Vanilla Ice have also been cast to appear as themselves, and it’s starting to look like we’ve got a movie! Let’s all just hope that the fact that it’s an Adam Sandler movie doesn’t keep it from being a funny one. I’m counting on you Samberg.
