Adam Sandler, These Careers Are Your Fault

Jul 08, 2011 Comments
Nick Swardson

Guilty of: I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Click, The Benchwarmers, Grandma’s Boy, Bedtime Stories and Just Go With It.
His shtick: Tends to play flaming gay guys or merely irritating (and horny) straight ones.
What’s to like: Swardson’s crowning moment of Sandler-dom came on the rare project they couldn’t get off the ground — the pilot for the sitcom Gay Robot, where Swardson provided the voice of the lead character. (Just the way he says “balls” is funny. Seriously.)
What’s not to like: His performance style is so aggressively annoying and over-the-top that it serves mainly to make Sandler’s work look nuanced.
