Adam Sandler’s Emotional Tribute To Cameron Boyce In The Credits Of Hubie Halloween
Adam Sandler’s latest flick Hubie Halloween premiered on Netflix on October 7. The movie features a tribute to the late actor, Cameron Boyce, during the credits.
Remembering the 20-year old who passed away last year, Sandler dedicated a few lines along with a picture of the actor. The credit reads, “Gone way too soon and one of the kindest, coolest, funniest, and most talented kids we knew. You live on forever in our hearts and are truly missed every day.”
If you have watched the movie Hubie Halloween, or are planning to watch it soon, be prepared to get your heartstrings pulled at the end when the credits roll. Halfway through the credits, a title card pops up, paying tribute to the young actor with an emotional note.
Boyce had starred as Sandler’s son in Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2.
Cameron Boyce was cast originally as the bully in the movie. His Jessie costar, Karan Brar, then played the role. Boyce was supposed to join the movie cast for shooting around the same time he was found unresponsive in his Los Angeles home and was later pronounced dead.
In one of the previous interviews with Yahoo! Entertainment, Sandler recalled Cameron and some of the happy moments shared with him. He said, “He was supposed to come to do the movie maybe two days after [he died]. He was getting on a plane to come shoot our movie. That was devastating news for his family and for all of us. He was always great to my family. Cameron came to my daughter’s bat mitzvah three months before he passed away and every one of my daughter’s friends was coming up to him, and he took the time and talked to everybody, and signed autographs and took pictures with them. He was just a great kid, and everybody misses him.”
Adam also posted Boyce’s picture in his Instagram profile back in May wishing the late actor on his 21st birthday. Sandler had added the caption, “Happy birthday to Cameron. Would have been 21 years old. Such a great kid. We all miss him a lot. Especially his incredible family.” Sandler had added the link to the website knowsudepnow.org in the same post, to bring awareness of epilepsy risks and tackle epilepsy deaths.
