CBS - Mark McEwen (The
person conducting the interview)
CBS: ...where the comedy Big Daddy has been making some big noise at the box
office. Adam Sandler stars as a thirty-something who's unwilling to grow up, finds himself
taking care of a five-year-old orphan. Six-and-a-half (now seven) year old identical twins
Cole and Dylan Sprouse share the role, they're acting veterans. But Big Daddy is their
first feature film.
(Brief scene from the movie is now shown)
CBS: (Laughs at the movie clip)
