Hustle trailer
Netflix

Adam Sandler's new Netflix sports drama Hustle has seen the actor receive widespread acclaim for his performance as top basketball scout Stanley Sugerman.

Sandler, who is a certified basketball fanatic in real life, stars alongside Queen Latifa, Ben Foster and Robert Duvall in the movie which has already achieved a rare Rotten Tomatoes score for the often maligned leading man.

However, following his performance in the cult hit Uncut Gems, Sandler's talents shouldn't have been in doubt and Hustle is even more impressive given that the majority of the supporting cast are actually professional basketball players in the NBA and elsewhere within the sport.

Starring opposite Sandler is Juancho Hernangomez who plays a 22-year-old basketball prospect that Sugerman meets while in Spain and attempts to get him an NBA contract. Hernangomez is actually a real basketball player from Madrid who currently plays for Utah Jazz, having previously represented Denver Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs.
