Adam Sandler is determined to make Jennifer Hudson a star in the new full-length trailer for the upcoming Netflix comedy "Sandy Wexler."
So, what's the difference between an agent and a manager? Well, while playing an eccentric Los Angeles talent scout named "Sandy Wexler" in this 1994-set goofy comedy, Sandler offers a relatively straightforward answer: "an agent is business, but a manager is family."
And, so, that means Wexler is looking out for the best interest of his oddball clients, which now includes his latest and greatest find: Courtney Clarke (played by Oscar-and-Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson). But on the way of making Courtney a big mega singing star, Wexler discovers his new client isn't just family; she might be the love of his life.
The film, directed by Steven Brill (The Do-Over, Mr. Deeds, Little Nicky), boasts a large cast of Sandler regulars, including Kevin James, Colin Quinn, Terry Crews, Nick Swardson, Rob Schneider as well as a bunch of celebrity cameos by Conan O'Brien, Chris Rock, Vanilla Ice, David Spade, Dana Carvey, Penn Jillette, Judd Apatow, Pauly Shore and much more.
New Girl's Lamorne Morris, Jane Seymour, Carl Weathers and Arsenio Hall also co-star in the Netflix film, which is set to debut on Friday, April 14.
The film follows Sandy Wexler (Adam Sandler), a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, who diligently represents a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single-minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke (Academy Award and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson), a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park.
