Adam Sandler takes on a hair salon

The waiting game has started again on the carpet as the first major movie premiere invaded Hollywood since "What Happens In Vegas." Last night Adam Sandler and crew headed down the carpet for the World Premiere of "You Don't Mess With the Zohan."

The waiting was as bad as there were limos lined up 5 deep to drop off A, B, C and D list actors well maybe not D List Actors. The majority of the cast showed up sans Alec Mapa, Chris Rock and the much anticipated Mariah Carey. African-American mainstay event photographer Bill Jones was a bit upset as he said his main reason for coming to the premiere was to shoot Miss Mariah Carey Cannon. Oh well, we still had Adam and Rob on the carpet.

Only problem with Mr. Sandler is he's either chewing gum, not looking at photographers or just walking fast through the carpet. Last night was no exception as he walked briskly through the red carpet. He did take a moment to stop and sit in one of the hairstyling chairs that were on the carpet for props.

Jenna Dewan showed up without her man Channing Tatum. Are they still together?

Lainie Kazan is definitely a crazy and cool lady to photograph on the carpet. I missed the shot of her rubbing Zohan's privates!!!

Kevin James gives photographers strict orders to take good photos of him and his wife Steffiana.

The lovely "27 Dresses" star Malin Akerman knows how to give us that sexy look in a hairstyling chair.

In You Don't Mess With the Zohan, a comedy from screenwriters Adam Sandler, Robert Smigel (Triumph the Insult Comic Dog), and Judd Apatow (Knocked Up), Sandler stars as Zohan, an Israeli commando who fakes his own death in order to pursue his dream: becoming a hairstylist in New York. Dennis Dugan directs.

Channing and Jenna are still dating. He's filming 'G.I. Joe' in Prague right now, so he was not able to attend the premiere.

Adam Sandler is classic in his own way, though he tends to do his best work when he stays casual, not trying too hard to be funny or deep, etc.
