WWE Hall of Fame inductee and Redneck Island host "Stone Cold" Steve Austin returned for all-new episodes of his hit reality competition series on CMT this past Saturday, and we had the pleasure of sitting down with him for a quick chat. During our conversation, we also talked about Steve's role in the first-ever Adam Sandler sequel Grown Ups 2.
Watch our exclusive video, as Steve Austin reveals how truly funny the script was, and what his past relationship with Adam Sandler is in this all-star comedy ensemble. Is he the villain? Maybe...
"Man, let me tell you something. I had so much fun. I have to laugh out loud. First of all, when I read the script...It's the first script I've ever laughed out loud about. I'm not that guy. When you are sitting there with a script, by yourself, you don't just chuckle to yourself. You reserve that for when people are around. That's what you do when you are together. But this is going to be a laugh out loud movie. I don't want to give too much of my part away in the movie, but it was an outstanding time working with Adam Sandler
I saw a couple of the trailers, and...My gosh, it is a funny movie. I hear that it is testing through the roof. I think it's going to be a big, big hit for Adam Sandler
and the guys.
I play a guy that had some past dealings with Adam Sandler
back when we were kids. And I will leave it at that."
Grown Ups 2 was released July 12th, 2013 and stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello, Nick Swardson. The film is directed by Dennis Dugan.
