Adam Sandler revealed that the host of “The Price is Right”, Bob Barker wasn’t his first choice for “Happy Gilmore’s” famous fight scene. While promoting his new movie “Hubie Halloween” on Netflix (which is howl-ishish BTW) Sandler said he wanted Ed McMahon for the cameo fight scene. The problem was Ed never responded to Sandler’s request. What Sandler got dissed?
Sandler also revealed that Barker would only do the movie if he could win the fight. Seems the TV Icon and host had been training with his neighbor, martial artist and actor Chuck Norris. The only thing better might have been a tag team fight in this scenario! See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLQTqD1hEbg
