  • Susan Sarandon also played Andy Samberg’s mother in the SNL Digital Shorts “Motherlover” and “3-Way (The Golden Rule)” (skits recorded for Saturday Night Live by The Lonely Island (which Samberg is a member of) and Justin Timberlake).
  • Susan Sarandon also played a teacher who had a relationship with an underage student in 30 Rock: Queen of Jordan
  • The Boston Police cruisers come from the same fictional district of A-8 shown in The Town and Boston’s Finest.

  • The masseuse that ‘Adam Sandler’ (Donny) makes a pass at, is played by his real wife Jackie Sandler.
