Norm MacDonald, known for his smart-ass commentary as the anchor of “Saturday Night Live‘s" Weekend Update segment in the late ‘90s, is back to his roots packing comedy venues across the country. He’s doing a two-gig stint tomorrow night--7 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 21--at the Wilbur Theatre in Boston.
MacDonald, who will team up with his former “SNL” cohorts including Adam Sandler, David Spade and Rob Schneider as well as “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” funnyman Kevin James, is slotted to revisit the area in May for a 66-day film shoot in Boston centering around a group of guys who return to their hometown. Think a “Big Chill”-style comedy … but with a lot of laughs.
The made-in-Boston flick from Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions is tentatively called "Lake House." So far, film scouts for the flick have scoped out Franklin Park Zoo and locations in Wellesley, Wareham and Southboro.
