Idina Menzel cast alongside Adam Sandler in Uncut Gems
Idina Menzel has been cast alongside Adam Sandler in ‘Uncut Gems’.
The 47-year-old actress – who voiced the part of Queen Elsa in ‘Frozen’ – has signed on to star in the new Netflix production, which will see Adam play the role of a jewellery store owner with a gambling addiction who is trying to sustain two relationships while also dealing with his increasing debts.
Idina has been cast in the role of Adam’s on-screen wife, according to Deadline, which reports that Eric Bogosian, Lakeith Stanfield and Judd Hirsch will also star in the movie.
Before Idina stars in ‘Uncut Gems’, she will be releasing her sixth album, which is due out next month, and she will then head out on tour with Josh Groban.
Idina is also involved with ‘Frozen 2’ – but she previously admitted that her new-found status as a role model hasn’t been entirely easy to cope with.
Reflecting on the impact of the first ‘Frozen’ movie, she said: "Everyone talks about me being a role model for young girls and that’s not always the truth in my day-to-day personal life. I’m not constantly practising what I preach.
"I’m a little uncomfortable carrying that banner. I’m not always ‘Oh, I feel so great about myself today. I’m a powerful, confident woman, and I’m not going to care what anyone else thinks of me!’
"I mean it’s all bull***t, really. I can be a mess. The older I get, I get wiser about some things, and yet I get more fragile and vulnerable about others."
