Andy Samberg has shared how it feels to have Adam Sandler as his eccentric father in "That's My Boy". Admitting that he's been a big fan of Sandler since he was younger, the former "Saturday Night Live" star says he's glad to be the "Jack and Jill" actor's on-screen son especially because people always say that both of them have similar faces.

Samberg tells Examiner, "There are not a lot of parts suited better for me than Adam Sandler's son, if he had a son in his teens, because we're the perfect age different." He adds, "I've been told my whole life that I look like him and remind people of him, which was not coincidence because I was obsessed with him growing up and modeled my career after his. So when my agent gave me the script, I called him and said I was dying to play the part, and he was very sweet about it."
