Adam Sandler on set in Palma. | Majorca Daily Bulletin reporter

Mallorca appears to be very much on everyone’s lips in Hollywood. Apart from the fact Morgan Freeman is currently filming on the island and Nicole Kidman is expected any day now, Adam Sandler, who filmed much of Hustle on location on Mallorca last summer, has just been nominated for a Screen Actors Guild SAG Award for Best Actor for his role in the film which also stars two top Spanish basketball players.

The movie tells the story of a washed-up basketball scout (Adam Sandler) who discovers a talented new player, (Canarian NBA player, Juancho Hernangómez), when he’s on holiday.

Without the approval of his team, he decides to take him back to America to prove that they both belong in the NBA.


Canarian NBA player Juancho Hernangómez made his acting debut in ‘Hustle’ alongside Hollywood heavyweights, Queen Latifah and Robert Duvall.
