The latest from producer Adam Sandler features Rob Schneider, David Spade, and Jon Heder as grown-up dweebs who come to bat for geeky kids terrorized by neighborhood bullies. ”We form this tournament and play baseball against all the other Little League teams for revenge — not just for us, but for nerds all over the world,” says Heder. ”Of course, we’re still horrible baseball players.” For the Napoleon Dynamite star, the shoot was like a field of dreams. ”I grew up watching Saturday Night Live, so to work with these two was just so surreal,” he says. ”It’s like, Okay, am I really here? And do I belong here?” (April 7)
