South Africa fast bowler Dale Steyn will soon be seen making his debut in Hollywood. He recently shot for a scene alongside actors Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore for a movie titled Family Moon. The shooting took place in Los Angeles.

The movie is reportedly about a couple forced to live together after a blind date, with their respective children from previous marriages.

According to NDTV, Steyn essays the role of a cricketer in the movie.

“I have to pitch/bowl to Drew’s son, whom Adam is coaching,” Steyn was quoted as saying.

“The whole thing was amazing. Adam was great. He really made me feel welcome. They all did. The team at Warner Brothers and Happy Madison Productions were so friendly and professional.”

The bowler even posted pictures of himself with the cast of the film on his instagram account. He also posted picture of himself with basketball star Shaq O’Neil.

“It was also great meeting people like Drew Barrymore and Shaq O’Neil. Shaq is huge. I come up to his shoulder,” he said.
