Adam Sandler

The best man at Adam Sandler's 2003 wedding was not a man at all, but an English bulldog named Meatball, dressed appropriately in a tux and yarmulke. Sandler, the comedian known for his goofball roles in films such as Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison, originally worked with Meatball's dad, Mr. Beefy, in the 2000 film Little Nicky. Sandler doted on Meatball, going so far as to film a comedy short with the pooch titled A Day with the Meatball, about a typical day in the dog's life. Meatball died of a heart attack at age four, but Sandler and his wife, Jackie, continue to enjoy the company of their other bulldog, Matzoball.
