Netflix The Wrong Missy: Secrets from behind the scenes of bizarre David Spade film

Netflix’s The Wrong Missy has been an enormous hit on the streaming platform this week, proving people in lockdown are desperate for a comedy fix and some escapism. What better way to achieve this than in the form of a bizarre David Spade film made by King of Comedy Adam Sandler’s production company? Well it made it into the top 10 so something worked. But it turns out the lead actor faced some “tricky” moments when filming that home-cinema viewers won’t be privy to.

Adam Sandler’s production company Happy Madison productions has helmed the movie, and stars the former’s friend in David Spade.

The comic genius takes a back-seat to his co-star Lauren Lapkus, who truly steals the scene in the hilarious plot-gone-wrong caper.

And as a result, he really struggled to find his footing with his character, a serious and cantankerous human who ends up botching a planned trip by inviting the wrong girl. Cue some crazy theatrics.

Speaking in a Jo Blo interview alongside his co-star Nick Swardson, he explained how the job was more difficult than his usual roles.

“First of all, Lauren being so funny was a big help because most of it is her and then me reacting,” the actor began.

“But I’m trying to keep it together by giving good reactions so you can try to get a laugh off of Lauren and me.

“With Nick, he’s saying crazy things; I’m trying to get a laugh on my end and then go back to Nick.

“So, you try to double up like that and be ‘the voice of sanity’ in the movie.”

The star continued: “But it’s definitely a tricky thing for me to play for me.

“It’s not my thing I do.

“I’m usually such, uh, thirsty for attention,” Spade laughed.

“Have you seen his Instagram?” Swardson chimed in. “Good Lord.

“Hey guys, remember me from 20 minutes ago? I’m still here!” Spade agreed.

National Theatre streaming: Which new shows are available to stream? List in FULL

The National Theatre has been forced, similarly to many theatres, to find a new way to show their performances. NT Live is a famous, pre-existing service where theatre shows are broadcast live into cinemas. With cinemas closed, however, there has to be an even newer way to make sure theatre-lovers don’t lose out.

National Theatre at Home launched to help theatre fans get their fix while forced to remain at home.

Since then, some major shows have been available to watch online, including James Corden in One Man, Two Guvnors, as well as Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, starring Arthur Darvill.

At the moment, Twelfth Night starring Tamsin Grieg is on stage, and fans have been desperate to make sure they watch it.

This falls perfectly around the time of Shakespeare’s birthday, though his official birth date is much contested.

Twelfth Night is about a young woman shipwrecked with her twin brother, Sebastian, who pretends to be a man to get close to the well-loved Duke Orsino, posing as her brother.

However, which shows are set to come to the streaming service next?

Frankenstein – arriving April 30 – May 8

The first arriving is Frankenstein, which turns Mary Shelley’s famous horror novel into an exciting new play.

The play follows Victor Frankenstein, a famously obsessive scientist, desires to understand how life works, so much that he tries to create life from dead body-parts.

His creation, known as the creature, is first despised and rejected, but learns about life as he travels and learns from his experience, before he and his maker meet again.

In this groundbreaking version, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller star as Victor Frankenstein and the creature, but with a twist.

During the live performances, the pair would swap roles, meaning they both played Victor Frankenstein and the creature, to show the duality of the characters.

For the National Theatre at Home, both versions can be seen and are available simultaneously, though only

Cumberbatch as the creature is available on April 30, while only Miller as the creature is available on May 8.

The play first came to the theatre in 2011 and sold out most shows, with 800,000 people seeing it live.

Antony and Cleopatra – arriving May 7-14

Another ode to Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra is one of the playwright’s lesser performed plays.

This version sees Ralph Fiennes take on the role of Antony, a fierce military commander, while his lover Cleopatra is played by Sophie Okonedo.

The play is a tragedy for the fated lovers, as General Mark Antony rules the Roman Empire after the death of Caesar and his assassins.

Of course, the war-torn empire’s fate is determined by more than just armies, as Antony has fallen madly in love with the Egyptian queen Cleopatra.

The pair must decide between what is their duty and their love for one another, while these decisions lead to jealousy, deceit and war.

The 2018 adaptation was a critical success, and was screened in cinemas as part of the NT Live performances.

Catch these plays on the National Theatre at Home website, with each new show arriving the following Friday
