Adam Sandler as Danny Friedman
Even if he isn’t the main star, Adam Sandler is the main draw to You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah. Before he became one of the most famous comedy actors of his era, Sandler got started as a stand-up who caught the public’s attention doing bits with Colin Quinn on the MTV game show Remote Control. Sandler later joined Saturday Night Live and quickly became the show’s most popular cast member, thanks to characters like Opera Man and pepper boy Carlo.
During his prime years, Sandler released bizarre comedies like Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison, slowly adding more schmaltzy elements to movies such as The Wedding Singer and Click. However, Madison has earned acclaim for his occasional dramatic roles, working with James L. Brooks in Spanglish, Paul Thomas Anderson in Punch-Drunk Love, and with the Safdie Brothers in Uncut Gems.
Sadie Sandler as Ronnie Friedman
The eldest daughter of Adam and Jackie Sandler, Sadie Sandler has only appeared in her father’s films. She has small parts in Hubie Halloween, The Ridiculous Six, and Grown Ups, among others. Her most notable performance thus far came in Hotel Transylvania, in which she voiced the child version of the main character Mavis.
Sarah Sherman as Rabbi Rebecca
If the name Sarah Sherman doesn’t ring a bell, you may know the comedian under her stage name Sarah Squirm. Known for her work with performers such as Eric Andre, Sherman excels at the comedy of discomfort, trying to disgust her audiences while making them laugh. Sherman joined Saturday Night Live as a writer and featured performer and also wrote bits for Jackass Forever. Most recently, Sherman lent her voice to the Netflix animated film Nimona, portraying Coriander Cadaverish.
Luis Guzmán as Eli Katz
One of the greatest “that guys” of all time, Luis Guzmán has a filmography that would make any actor jealous. Guzmán is a favorite of auteurs such as Steven Soderbergh (appearing in Out of Sight, Traffic, and The Limey) and Paul Thomas Anderson (playing supporting roles in Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and beside Sandler in Punch-Drunk Love). He stole scenes in Carlito’s Way and Runaway Jury, and has had notable runs on tv series Oz, Narcos, and Code Black. Most recently, Guzmán portrayed Gomez Adams on the hit Netflix series Wednesday.
