Adam Sandler: five seasons (1991–95)
Adam Sandler, 56, joined the cast in 1991 and created many memorable characters, including Opera Man, Canteen Boy, and Cajun Man. He also introduced the live holiday hit “The Hanukkah Song.” He was fired from the show in 1995, however, alongside many of his co-stars.
“We rather quit at the same time he was fired,” Adam Sandler told The Daily Beast in 2014.
“It was very painful at the time,” he added, “because we were young and didn’t know where we were going, but it all worked out.”
While still on the show, he starred in the iconic film “Billy Madison.” After leaving, Sandler starred in a number of other popular films, including “Happy Gilmore,” “Waterboy,” “The Wedding Singer,” “Big Daddy,” “Little Nicky,” “Mr. Click.”
Most recently, he signed two deals with Netflix to produce and star in eight films at once for the streaming service. One of those films, “Murder Mystery,” had 30.9 million views in just three days, breaking a streaming record, according to Variety.
She also returned to “SNL” for the first time in 2019 to host the show, and was later nominated for an Emmy. Sandler is considered one of the biggest insults at the 2020 Oscars, as he wasn’t even nominated for his role in the Safdie Brothers film, “Uncut Gems.”
Sandler has many projects in the future, including a sequel to “Murder Mystery,” the sci-fi film “Spaceman,” and the untitled Safdie Brothers film.
