Max Kessler was surprised when he heard that Adam Sandler’s new movie The Do-Over had him starring as a character named Max Kessler. That’s pretty neat, because it’s not the world’s most common name. But the similarities didn’t stop there.
Kessler posted the coincidence and a picture to reddit. One thing led to another, and Adam Sandler started sending pictures back and forth with Kessler. And then Sandler had Kessler flown to Los Angeles for the premiere of the movie on Netflix Monday.
