Would he be funny?

Adam Sandler Weighed as Cruise Co-Star
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Adam Sandler, who stepped out of his usual comedic mold to star in Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Punch-Drunk Love” last year, appears to be eyeing another left turn in his choice of characters.
On Wednesday night, Sandler was scheduled to meet with filmmaker Michael Mann to discuss the possibility of starring opposite Tom Cruise in the director’s “Collateral” for DreamWorks.
If he joins the project, Sandler would play Max, the meek cab driver who picks up a passenger (Cruise) who takes him hostage.
