Shaquille O'Neal, Shaq, Superman, The Diesel, The Big Aristotle, Shaqtus... O'Neal has as many nicknames as he does talents. This Tuesday, Shaq took to Instagram to share some behind-the-scenes footage of a new movie he is involved in with legendary funny man, Adam Sandler.
Shaq is widely regarded as being one of the most dominant forces, if not the most dominant, the NBA has ever seen. While that is an exclusive accomplishment many would love to achieve, it was not enough for Shaquille O'Neal. After retiring, O'Neal has become an award-winning basketball analyst on TNT, an entrepreneur and even an actor.
Fans ought to be well aware that the Big Shaqtus is familiar with Hollywood. Apart from playing in Los Angeles for eight years, Shaq has over 40 credited roles on his IMDb page.
Three of those roles are parts Shaq got in an Adam Sandler movie. The comedian seems to be fond of using the former NBA great's talents. O'Neal participated in three of Sandler more recent movies: Jack and Jill, Grown Ups 2 and Blended.
It seems the two megastars will be joining forces yet again for Sandler's upcoming comedy project with Netflix, Hubie Halloween.
Both stars took to Instagram to post the following image while working on the upcoming comedy:
Sandler recently released Murder Mystery with Netflix. The movie is a comedic take on ... well, a murder mystery. Sandler stars alongside Jennifer Aniston in the Netflix movie which was released this June.
Clearly, Sandler is showing no sign of slowing down his work rate. Hubie Halloween has not yet been given a release date but judging by its title, sometime before Halloween would be a safe bet.
Also starring in the movie will be Maya Rudolph, Kevin James and Julie Bowen among others. We cannot wait to see how Shaq will fit into the mix in this Halloween comedy.
