Adam Sandler has had many instances in the past of taking the dramatic turn, with praised performances in Spanglish, Reign Over Me, Funny People, The Meyeroritz Stories, and of course 2002’s Punch Drunk Love. Despite being someone so attached to the world of comedy, when he gets into the dramatic spotlight, he always delivers. There’s yet to be a bad Adam Sandler dramatic performance, even if the movie isn’t so great.
Luckily, Uncut Gems, which follows a jewelry dealer with what seems to be a very dark history, looks like it’s bound to be a home run for Mr. Sandler, who received tremendous amounts of accolades for his performance already. Check out the trailer below to see yet another comedian turn to the dark side of drama.
