Shaq during the scene in Sandler's movie "Hubie Hallowen"

Shaquille O'Neal may be one of the best and most dominant players in NBA history, but the big man owes a lot of his fame to his off-court activity. From commercials and hip-hop songs to movies, "The Big Diesel" can do everything with style. But one of his more recent movie appearances had a fun twist to it when Adam Sandler decided to prank him.

Shaq is Hollywood

Adam Sandler is an actor mostly known for his witty comedies, but lately, he has been involved in more serious projects such as Hustle or Uncut Gems. But that doesn't by any means imply Sandler has lost his comedic touch. Quite the contrary, as Shaq told the story of Adam pranking him on the set of their 2020 movie called "Hubie Halloween."

"The last Adam movie I did was called Hubie Halloween. And I had to do this scene where I'm eating this sandwich with this girl and French Kissing her at the same time. So Adam made me do it about 50 times. Cut. Cut. Cut. I looked back at Adam, like what the hell!... The girl that he had me kissing, she was kind of getting into it. I was like: 'Hey lady, this is just for the movie. Adam cut!'"

Gotta give it to Shaq. He was being a true professional, and it seems the lady doing the scene with him didn't mind it all that much. But he has a lot of experience doing movies, especially with Adam Sandler, who is his great friend. Aside from Hubie Halloween, Shaq appeared in the Grown-Ups franchise, Jack and Jill, and Blended with Adam. And, of course, a couple of other classics without Sandler like Kazaam, Blue Chips, Uncle Drew, and many more.

Shaq has been Hollywood ever since his playing days, and his charismatic and comedic nature mixed with the gigantic size just make him a sight to see whatever he's doing. It's no wonder he's so successful in life. On the other side, Adam Sandler is a noted NBA and Lakers fan, as he is often even seen playing with NBA stars in pick-up runs despite being 55 years old. Just two unique and hilarious guys.
