Madonna’s right hand man turns up in Zohan
In the action comedy “You Don’t Mess With the Zohan,” Maverick Records Chief Executive Guy Oseary turns up in a cameo role as an Israeli army counter-terrorism agent. Riding in a car with Adam Sandler (as the titular sexed-up terrorist killing machine-turned-hair stylist Zohan) in one scene, the Israeli-born Oseary, 36, inhabits the role of Avi, uttering the unforgettable line of dialogue “Zohan, go!” as Sandler leaps from the speeding vehicle.
Not exactly what you’d expect from Madonna‘s right hand man, the music industry hot shot who signed acts including Alanis Morissette, the Prodigy and Deftones to Maverick – who, moreover, is the godfather to the Material Girl and Guy Ritchie‘s son Rocco and manages Lenny Kravitz.
But the “Zohan” role makes more sense when you consider that Oseary is also the author of the book “Jews Who Rock“.
