Famous "Saturday Night Live" Actors
Transcript of Famous "Saturday Night Live" Actors
Chris Crosby Farley was born on February 15, 1964 and grew up in Madison, Wisconsin. He was discovered in 1975 by the "Saturday Night Live" producer Lorne Michaels. Farley was on the show for five years and also starred in many comedies such as Wayne's World, Billy Madison, and Tommy Boy. As Farley's fame grew, so did his problems with alcohol and drug addictions. Feeling trapped into being the "fat guy who always fell down", Farley overdosed to his death on December 18, 1997 on heroine and cocaine at age 33. Even though he lived a short life, Farley's legacy of funny guys will always live on.
Adam Sandler was born in Brooklyn, New York on September 9, 1966. Sandler was discovered by a man named Dennis Miller, who recommended him to the "Saturday Night Live" Producer Lorne Michaels. With many talents, Sandler soon left the show and started to act in movies such as Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, Big Daddy and many others, as well as write and produce them. He also writes and performs songs for his movies. He is still alive today at age 44.
David Spade was born on July 22, 1964 in Birmingham, Michigan, but moved around in the southwest during his childhood. After landing in a movie, Spade eventually joined the cast of "Saturday Night Live" in 1990 and stayed for six years. Always having a very sarcastic attitude, Spade was a perfect opposite to crazy, loud Chris Farley in movies such as Tommy Boy and Blacksheep. Spade has been in other movies such as The Benchwarmers and Joe Dirt. He now stars on the TV show "Just Shoot Me" at the age of 46.
