6 High-Profile Actor Bromances

Thursday, April 12 by

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

These guys are known to be best friends, so it’s pretty unsurprising to see them together; so much so that seeing them on this list is actually a bit of a surprise. How’s that for mindblowing? Anyway, Pegg and Frost have appeared in cult favorites Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead together, but also The Adventures of Tintin, Paul, the trailer Don’t for Grindhouse, and the TV shows Spaced and Big Train.

That’s true love right there, folks. In fact, their co-appearances have become so staid that it’s weird and unpleasant to see one without the other. Which is why he hope U.S. Congress bill H.R. 16211 passes, which would legally obligate these two actors to only appear in films together, because it’s kind of a bummer when there’s one but not the other.

Adam Sandler and Peter Dante/Allen Covert

Many of these pairings are celebrated, but Adam Sandler’s constant use of his buddies in the Happy Madison universe isn’t really taking anyone’s breathe away. These guys have been in pretty much every Adam Sandler film since Big Daddy, including Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds, Anger Management, and…I don’t really want to keep naming Adam Sandler films. It’s depressing. Almost as depressing as the fact that these guys really have trouble breaking away from Sandler’s golden teat.

Allen Covert was able to score a role in Freaks and Geeks as a Clerk, and on King of Queens in a recurring role, but let’s call a spade a spade. Those two gigs have Sandler’s name all over them.

Peter Dante’s most notable role away from the Sandman was as a cop in the terrible Farrelly brothers film Stuck on You.

Keep challenging yourselves, guys!
