Happy birthday to Adam Sandler, the Emmy and Grammy-nominated actor and comedian is turning 55 years old today. Sandler rose to prominence as a cast member of Saturday Night Live, creating several classic characters before eventually making the transition to big-screen star. In the decades since, Sandler has been one of Hollywood’s most in-demand performers, headlining numerous blockbuster comedies and even occasionally dipping into dramatic acting — in total, Sandler’s films have grossed more than $2 billion at the box office. Since 2016, Sandler has produced his films through an exclusive deal with Netflix, a lucrative move that allowed the funnyman even more creative freedom.
