Adam Sandler starred in yet another successful comedy in 1999, “Big Daddy,” alongside one of Hollywood’s most famous twins, Dylan and Cole Sprouse.


“Big Daddy” was one of the best parenting films in the ‘90s, which had Adam Sandler as a lazy law school graduate who had the best character development after raising his roommate’s child.

It has been over two decades since the movie premiered and the film’s stellar cast has changed much since then. Here’s a look at them in recent years.

His other films include “The Longest Yard,” “50 First Dates,” “Anger Management,” “Punch-Drunk Love,” and “Mr. Deeds,” all of which fall under the comedy genre.
