Man Messes With Adam Sandler And The 'Zohan'

The movie may be called 'You Don't Mess with the Zohan' but that isn't stopping one man who claims that he's the one who originally came up with the idea for the upcoming Adam Sandler movie.

Robert W. Cabell has filed a lawsuit against Adam Sandler looking to block the June 6 release of the movie. Ellis J. Pailet, Cabell's attorney, says the similarities are all too obvious between Cabell's gay crusader action hero in his novel 'The Hair-Raising Adventures of Jayms Blonde', who fights evil with his blow-dryer, and Sandler's hero, who fakes his own death in order to pursue his dream of becoming a hairstylist in New York.

"Your transformation of our client's gay character into your heterosexual character is not a fair use," says Cabell. "Like the Blonde logo, the Zohan logo used to promote your movie depicts your character pointing a blow-dryer as if it were a weapon."

Pailet also points out that Sandler and Rob Schneider, who co-stars in the film, were among the character's first MySpace friends when its website was created -- proving they were not only aware but a fan of the character.

"Your image unfairly competes with Blonde and your continued use would subject our client to legal liability and further damage to his intellectual property rights. This is patently unfair," adds Pailet.
