On Monday, July 8, students were treated to an impromptu Q&A discussion with veteran actor, comedian, director and writer Rob Schneider, who happened to be in Central Florida over the weekend.
Schneider spent more than two hours answering students’ questions and talking about the television and film industries. The audience consisted of students from Full Sail’s Film Bachelor of Science degree program, as well as students who responded to the announcement of Schneider’s surprise visit on Full Sail’s Facebook page.
Schneider has starred in a number of hit comedies, including Grown Ups, Big Stan (which he also directed), 50 First Dates, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo and Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, The Hot Chick, The Benchwarmers, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, and The Animal. He has also appeared in many TV shows, including his 2012 series Rob, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, and Men Behaving Badly. He has been nominated three times in the Primetime Emmy Awards for his contributions as a writer for Saturday Night Live.
