Adam Sandler Stars in Netflix’s ‘Hustle’

While veteran actor Adam Sandler is best known for his comedic work, in recent years, he’s shown that he has surprising range when it comes to dramatic, serious works. His role in Uncut Gems showed a lot of us that he knows how to play it straight when he wants to, and now he’s about to do it again.

Today, Netflix released the first trailer for Hustle, a new sports-themed film starring Adam Sandler as an exhausted talent scout for the Philadelphia 76ers and NBA player Juancho Hernangómez as a talented street baller with a checkered past.

“Stanley Sugerman’s love for basketball is unparalleled, but the travel weary Philadelphia 76ers scout who has higher ambitions of being a coach remains stuck on the road looking for the next unknown talent,” the official synopsis reads. “His search around the world leads him to Spain, when he discovers Bo Cruz, an incredible streetball player with a troubled past. Stanley and Bo connect on and off the court, with their passion for the game and as loving family men who want to prove they can win, in basketball and in life.”

It’s no secret that Sandler loves basketball, with the sport being a recurring element in many of his films, and this isn’t even the first time he’ll be starring alongside an NBA player. Compared to those instances, though, Hustle is shaping up to be a much more serious, down-to-Earth production. Hopefully, this one wins some awards, lest Sandler subject us to another Hubie Halloween as payback.

Hustle premiers on Netflix on June 8, 2022.
