If you didn’t know, Cameron Boyce was originally supposed to star in the new Netflix comedy Hubie Halloween!
Unfortunately, the late actor passed away just days before filming was set to begin on the movie.
Cameron‘s parents are now speaking out about the role and how they specifically asked Adam Sandler to cast his best friend Karan Brar in the role.
“Cameron was cast in that movie and unfortunately he passed away […] he passed away like a week before he was supposed to travel to, to shoot that movie. And then Karan actually took his place in the movie,” his mom Libby told PeopleTV. “Karan is his best friend. And, you know, we did ask Adam to cast Karan because that was the only person that could be in that role that wouldn’t break us.”
Cameron‘s dad Victor also dished on his relationship with Adam.
“Adam really got Cameron, you know […] his family, his wife, and his two daughters,” he said. “They all love Cameron like, like their own. And so, you know, Adam told me that he would like to dedicate the movie to Cameron. I’m like, of course, of course.”
“It’s not a surprise to me that [Cameron] and Adam clicked because Adam is just like Cameron […] they’re so real and raw and genuine that they just, they had that bond,” Victor added.
