Both during and after his time on SNL in the '90s, Adam starred in some of the movies that his career would be best associated with, including Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, The Wedding Singer, and, of course, The Waterboy.
The Waterboy Movie
In The Waterboy, Adam stars as Bobby Boucher, a man that is super passionate about water and eventually becomes a college student who joins the school's football team, becoming a standout player.
The coach of the team, referred to as Mr. Coach Klein by Adam's character, is played by generational actor Henry Winkler. The two have intertwining storylines throughout the movie, with Coach Klein fabricating some test scores (without Bobby's knowledge) to allow Bobby to join the team.
Henry Winkler's New Memoir
On October 31, 2023, Henry Winkler, who may best be known as his Happy Days character Arthur Fonzarelli -- AKA "Fonzie" or "The Fonz" -- has a brand new memoir coming out called Being Henry: The Fonz...and Beyond.
To help celebrate and also bring awareness to the new book dropping, Adam recently took to his Instagram page to channel his old character of Bobby Boucher, complete with Bobby's speech pattern and conversations with his "Mama" (who isn't shown in the Instagram video, but was played in The Waterboy by Kathy Bates.)
