Adam Sandler even had an idea that Drew Carey could appear in the movie. Carey replaced Bob Barker as The Price is Right host. Barker was in Happy Gilmore in a hilarious scene where he and Happy brawled on the golf course, with Barker beating Sandler’s angry golfer up.

“I would love Drew Carey to be in this movie out of respect to Bob,” Adam said.

Someone else rumored to be appearing in the movie is Kansas City Chiefs star tight end — and Taylor Swift’s boyfriend — Travis Kelce. This came from a fan prediction and Jason talked about it on his New Heights podcast with brother Jason Kelce.
