Hubie Halloween premiered on Netflix a few days ago and viewers are loving this Halloween-themed comedy. The film stars Adam Sandler as Hubie Dubois, a Halloween fanatic who loves celebrating the holiday in his hometown of Salem. However, his enthusiasm is often ridiculed by the members of the community. When the festivities are threatened, Hubie tries to report his findings to local law enforcement, but no one believes him. With time running out, it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween.
The film is currently at #1 on the streaming service’s Top 10 list, so it seems like this is another hit for Adam Sandler. However, I really don’t know why Sandler insisted on using that weird voice while playing Hubie; it’s basically the same one he used in Billy Madison.
Hubie Halloween features an all-star cast, including appearances from actors like Kevin James, Kenan Thompson, Steve Buscemi, Julie Bowen, Ben Stiller, and Rob Schneider, just to name a few. Former professional basketball player Shaquille O’Neal plays DJ Aurora, Salem’s local radio host.
Shaq and Betsy Sodaro in Hubie Halloween
Shaq’s role is revealed towards the end of the film, the duration of which the viewer is led to believe that DJ Aurora is actually a woman. Once Shaq’s identity is revealed, the actress playing his wife Bunny joins the scene. Funnily enough, Bunny’s voice is deeper than her husband’s! Like, a lot deeper.
If you’re wondering who plays Shaq’s wife in Hubie Halloween, then we have an answer for you. The actress’ name is Betsy Sodaro. You might recognize her from Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Disjointed, or Drunk History. Sodaro has also voiced several characters on Bob’s Burgers.
