Adam Sandler Wanted Brendan Fraser In Airheads, But Not Everyone Was On Board


Brendan Fraser’s buzzworthy performance in Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale comes after the actor has been in the industry for over 30 years. In the early days, before he starred in The Mummy and George of the Jungle, he appeared alongside Adam Sandler in the 1994 comedy Airheads that lended to his up-and-coming success at the time. As Fraser and Sandler recently reunited, the latter shared how they came to work together. 

Apparently Adam Sandler really wanted Brendan Fraser to lead the movie about three band members (Sandler’s Pip, Fraser’s Chazz and Steve Buscemi’s Rex) who decide to hold a radio station hostage until they play their demo. Here’s how Sandler remembered how Fraser locked down his part in Airheads when in conversation with his former co-star: 

You were just a kid. Remember when Paulie discovered you, and I stole you from Paulie and I said ‘Get on over here!’ I saw you [in Encino Man] and I was like, this guy shouldn’t just be a caveman, he should be in a band. Michael Lehmann was very against you. He was like ‘I don’t get it, I don’t see the caveman being in this movie’, and I was like ‘He can do other shit.’ I eventually went to his house at four in the morning, woke ‘em up and he was like ‘Who are you?’ I said, ‘Never mind that, just know that Adam Sandler ain’t gonna be in Airheads unless ‘ole Fraser is in it’. So, he changed his little tune.
