How much weirder can the cast for Adam Sandler's comedy Jack and Jill get? It already features Sandler playing two roles, as a man and the man's annoying twin sister, plus Katie Holmes as his wife and Al Pacino playing. himself? Now the Los Angeles Times is reporting that not only are Shaquille O'Neal and Regis Philbin set for cameos, but one of Spain's most famous comedians, Santiago Segura, has signed on as well. Not only that, but Segura will be playing the boyfriend of Sandler's Jill character, who was unveiled in set photos about a month ago. Yeah, it's not a pretty picture, but I suppose Segura is a good comedian who will do just about anything for a laugh. It's always strange to see comedy translate across national boundaries-- even British comedies sometimes don't hit over here-- so hopefully Segura won't have too much trouble getting into »
Variety is reporting that Al Pacino has signed on the dotted line to appear in Arbitrage, a new film by writer/ director Nicholas Jerecki. The trade says that Pacino will play a hedge fund magnate under investigation for his double-dealings.

Just Jared has the first set photo of Adam Sandler in costume (red cardigan, plaid skirt and brunette wig) for his latest shitty romantic comedy feature film Jack and Jill. The storyline follows Jack, a family man, who must deal with his twin sister Jill, who visits for Thanksgiving and won't leave. And, that's right, Sandler plays both the titular Jack and his twin sister Jill. Hit the jump to see the horrific full photo. Steven Koren (Evan Almighty, Click) wrote the screenplay, and Sandler comedy director Dennis Dugan (Grown Ups, You Don't Mess with the Zohan, The Benchwarmers) is directing. Katie Holmes (Batman Begins, The Romantics) is playing Sandler's wife and Al Pacino is making a cameo as himself. An actor making a cameo as himself in a Sandler comedy.... but, that would be too obvious. See more photos from the set on Just Jared. »

Yes, it's true, many great comedians have played multiple roles in the same film. My favorite is the great Peter Sellers pulling this trick in many films, most notably Dr. Strangelove, but Adam Sandler is no Peter Sellers. His latest assuredly awful film is Jack And Jill, the story of a man who must deal with his annoying twin sister when she comes to visit. And yes, Sandler plays both parts, and what that's going to look like you can see below in this spy shot from Just Jared. It's »

Think what you will about Adam Sandler, but his movies make money. Since 1998, 11 of his 16 movies have broken 100 million dollars at the domestic box office. That’s a winning percentage for any movie star. And even though most critics didn’t enjoy Grown Ups (his lastest movie), the film went on to gross over 264 million at the worldwide box office. What I’m trying to say is…Sandler is very popular and I wouldn’t bet against him.
That’s why even though the thought of Adam Sandler dressing in drag to play his twin sister in Dennis Dugan’s (Happy Gilmore, You Don’t Mess With the Zohan) new movie Jack and Jill doesn’t seem like a good idea to me (especially after seeing these pictures), I know it’ll still make a ton of money and some people are going to love it.

The Thanksgiving-set story centers on Jack (Sandler), a family man whose twin sister (also Sandler) pays a holiday visit and then doesn't leave. In a bizarre twist, the movie also stars Al Pacino ... as himself.
"Jack and Jill" will be directed by Dennis Dugan, a longtime Sandler cohort. He most recently directed the former "Saturday Night Live" comic in "Grown-Ups," "You Don't Mess With the Zohan" and "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," but their relationship extends as far back as "Happy Gilmore."
