Though many famous stars have lookalikes, Adam Sandler’s doppelganger doesn’t just bear an uncanny resemblance to the Hollywood actor.
In a surprising twist, Max Kessler not only sports Sandler’s looks, but also the name of a character in his new movie “Do-Over.”
Kessler posted a split image of himself and Sandler last month on Reddit with the caption, “The name of Adam Sandler’s character in his new movie, ‘The Do-Over’ is Max Kessler. My name is Max Kessler. Oh yeah, and I look just like him.”
The post went viral with over 8 million views to date and attracted the attention of Sandler himself, according to ET Online.
Sandler, 49, and Kessler communicated in a few back and forth photos holding up messages. Eventually, the actor invited the 23 year-old to the premiere of the film in a photo holding up a sign.
They met for the first time in Los Angeles on Monday.
“It’s a younger, sweeter, better version of me,” Sandler told ET. “He’s a good kid, he’s funny as hell and I was happy to meet him.”
Kessler, an accountant in New York City who has been told he looks like the actor his whole life, was still surprised to find his name as a character in the new film.
“First I called my mom and I said, ‘This is a joke, someone dubbed the script. Someone did something. there’s no way it’s my name.’ It was true, it was real,” he told ET.
