Hustle cast guide: Guide to the Netflix movie’s cast and characters (2023)

AfterHustle‘s theatrical release on June 3, Netflix subscribers are only days away from the highly anticipated sports drama film’s release on the streamer. With Adam Sandler starring in the leading role and an exciting premise, people will absolutely love the film.

Sandler plays Stanley Sugerman, a down on his luck basketball scout who sees an opportunity to get back into the NBA when he discovers a talented basketball player in Spain. Stanley brings the basketball player to the US without his team’s approval, which obviously ruffles some feathers and potentially gets him fired.

But Sandler isn’t the only well-known actor to star in the upcoming Netflix original movie. If you’re curious about who else is a part of theHustlecast, we’ve got you covered!
