Blake Shelton and Vanilla Ice cast in Adam Sandler film

Musicians Blake Shelton and Vanilla Ice have been tapped to join the star-studded cast of Adam Sandler's new Netflix movie.

The funnyman signed on to star in four original movies shown exclusively on the Internet streaming service, and the first film, Ridiculous 6, puts a comedic spin on ensemble westerns such as The Magnificent Seven.


Sandler, who also co-wrote the script with frequent collaborator Tim Herlihy, will play a man who grew up as an orphan on a Native American reservation.


Country star Shelton will make his film debut as legendary sheriff Wyatt Earp, while rapper-turned reality TV star Vanilla Ice has been cast as noted American author Mark Twain, according to TheWrap.com.


Nick Nolte, Luke Wilson, and Taylor Lautner are also set to star in the film, while Sandler movie regulars such as Rob Schneider, Steve Buscemi, Dan Aykroyd and Jon Lovitz will also make appearances.
