Adam Sandler is a Jewish American actor, comedian, producer, and musician. He is best known as a successful stand-up comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member. He has starred in seven $100 million films.

Sandler started in the mid 80's playing Theo Huxtable's friend, Smitty, on The Cosby Show. He also performed for MTV's game show, Remote Control, portraying made-up characters "Trivia Delinquent" and "Stud Boy". He started performing in comedy clubs by taking the stage at a club in Boston. Then, he was discovered by fellow comedian Dennis Miller, in Los Angeles. Miller recommended Sandler to Saturday Night Live producer, Lorne Michaels. He was hired in 1990 as a writer for the show and quickly became a featured player the following year. He would perform amusing songs, such as "The Chanukah Song." He left Saturday Night Live in 1995.

Sandler first tasted success in 1989's Going Overboard. But, in 1995, Sandler starred in Billy Madison, where he played a grown man repeating grades 1-12 in order to inherit his father's multi-million-dollar hotel empire. This became a huge success for Sandler. He followed Billy Madison with other successful comedies such as Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, Very Bad Things, and The Waterboy. He also appeared in more serious roles, such as Punch-Drunk Love and Spanglish. Critics believe that Sandler possesses an acting ability that has been previously wasted on poor scripts and characters with no development.

Sandler was considered for a role in Collateral, which later went to Jamie Foxx. He was also a finalist for the role of Willy Wonka, along with Jim Carey and Johnny Depp, in Charlie and the Chocloate Factory. Depp ultimately won the role. He starred in Click,a comedic movie about the stresses of everyday life. His next film Reign Over Me, is a drama about a man who lost his entire family in 9/11 and tried to rebuild a friendship with his old college roommate. I Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, his next comedy, will co-star Kevin James. They portray firemen who
pretend to be a gay couple in order to receive domestic partner benefits.
 
Adam Sandler is known for his trademarks in his movies. These include having Rob Schneider making a guest appearance; many of his movies ending in a cheering large audience; often casts former Saturday Night Live stars to be in his films; and usually wears Syracuse Orange sweats in his movies. He is also known for product placement in his films for such items as Snack Pack, AT&T, Subway, Popeye's Chicken, McDonald's, Yoo-Hoo, Hooters, and Spam.

SMITH, ANNA NICOLE

Birth name: Vickie Lynn Hogan
Born: November 28, 1967
Location: Houston, Texas
Died: February 8, 2007 in Hollywood, Florida
Awards: 2003 Playmate of the Year
Children: Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern and Daniel Wayne Smith (deceased)

Anna Nicole Smith was an American model, actress and blonde celebrity, who first gained popularity as Playboy magazine's 1993 Playmate of the Year. She was also known for her marriage to, octogenarian billionaire, J. Howard Marshall, who was 63 years older then her.

She is the daughter of Donald Eugene Hogan and Virgie Mae Tabers. Her half-sisters are Donna Hogan and Amy Hogan. When she was very young, the family moved to Texas and shortly after her parents divorced. She was brought up by her mother, a law enforcement officer, and her aunt. Anna Nicole always said that she wanted to be the next Marilyn Monroe. In 1997, she recorded a cover version of "My Heart Belongs To Daddy," originally made famous by Marilyn Monroe. The song was released in France & a video featuring Smith was made to promote it.

She was 17 when she had her first job at Jim's Krispy Fried Chicken. There she met her first husband, Billy Wayne Smith. She gave birth to their son, Daniel Wayne Smith (January 22, 1986-September 10, 2006), a year later. They divorced and after a few odd end jobs like Walmart and waitressing at Red Lobster, she became an exotic dancer.

According to Wikipedia, Smith's career took off after she was chosen by Hugh Hefner to appear on the cover of the March 1992 issue of Playboy wearing a low-cut evening gown. She was subsequently called "the next Marilyn Monroe" in press reports, a comparison she encouraged by wearing a hairstyle reminiscent of Monroe's, as well as her trademark white dress.  She first appeared nude in May of 1992 and in 1993 she was Playmate of the Year.

She met elderly oil billionaire J. Howard Marshall in the strip club she was working at, Gigi's. They dated for two years and eventually married.  This resulted in a great deal of gossip about her marrying him for his money. After being married fourteen months, Marshall died on August 4, 1995. After 5 years of fighting with his son, E. Pierce Marshall, for half of the 1.6 billion estate, she was awarded $449,754,134. On June 20, 2006, E. Pierce Marshall died at age 67 after an infection. His widow, Elaine T. Marshall, now represents his estate.

She was highly publicized in movies that she appeared in and she also produced the 1997 thriller, Skyscraper. Comedians often used her as a subject because of her legal battles, her weight gain, and her bizarre behavior.  In 2002, she debuted in her own reality TV series on the E! cable network, The Anna Nicole Show. The series focused on her personal and private life. The debut of the The Anna Nicole Show was the highest rated series on the network, but critics blasted it and ratings dropped with each successive week. The show was cancelled in 2004.

In October 2003, she became a spokesperson for TrimSpa, which helped her lose a reported 69 lbs.  As of 2006, Smith gave up modeling, although she remained a spokesperson for TrimSpa.
Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern was born in September of 2006. Anna Nicole says that the father is Howard Stern, her lawyer, but her ex-boyfriend, entertainment photojournalist Larry Birkhead, filed a lawsuit for paternity. A judge in the United States ordered that DNA tests be performed to determine who is the biological father of Dannielynn.

Wikipedia states that on February 8, 2007, Smith was found unresponsive in a room at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. At 1:38 p.m. a nurse called 911 and at 1:45 p.m. a bodyguard administered CPR before she was rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital at 2:10 p.m. and pronounced dead at 2:49 p.m. She was later pronounced dead upon arrival. Smith's boyfriend, Howard K. Stern, was with her when she died and has reported to Entertainment Tonight that her temperature was running high the night before.

STALLONE, SYLVESTER

Location
: New York City
Height: 5'9"
Awards: Academy Award Nominated
Status: Married to Jennifer Flavin
Children: Sage, Seargeoh, Sophia Rose, Sistine Rose and Scarlett Rose

Sylvester Stallone is an actor, director, producer and screenwriter. He is often referred to by his nickname, "Sly". He achieved his greatest successes in a number of action films, notably the Rocky and Rambo series.

At fifteen, his classmates voted him the one "most likely to end up in the electric chair." In the 1960s, Stallone attended the University of Miami for three years. He came within a few credit hours of graduation, before he decided to drop out and pursue an acting career. After Stallone's request that his acting and life experiences be accepted in exchange for his remaining credits, he was granted a Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFA) degree by the President of the University of Miami in 1999.

Stallone's career began with the leading role, Stud, in a hard-core pornographic film called Party at Kitty and Stud's. Stallone did not gain world-wide fame until his starring role in the smash hit Rocky (1976), the film was awarded the 1976 Academy Award for Best Picture. The movie has made the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art a Philadelphia tourist attraction.

Stallone is listed 7th in the list of the top heroes of all time by American Film Institute in 2003.Many consider him the most famous film star of the 80's and one of the most popular celebrities of the decade after the release of Rambo and it's sequels. Sly does most of his own stunts including much of the dangerous stuntwork in the Rambo films and Cliffhanger.

Stallone claims to have been able to bench press 385-400 lbs and squat 500 lbs in his prime. While in a bench pressing contest with former Mr. Olympia Franco Columbu, he severely tore his pectoral muscle and needed over 160 stitches on it. This is why one half of his chest is more veiny than the other.

Along with acting and directing,he wrote all six Rocky films, Stallone also wrote Cobra and Driven. He has co-written several other films, such as F.I.S.T., Over the Top and the first three Rambo films. His last major success as a co-writer came with 1993's Cliffhanger.
