Updated: 

Adam Sandler has discovered he has a doppelganger - and he was so intrigued that he invited him to his latest premiere.

The actor was amazed when an accountant posted side by side shots of them online, showing that they look extremely alike.

In a strange twist, it turned out that the man is named Max Kessler - which is the name of the character Adam plays in his new movie The Do-Over.

Max wrote: "The name of Adam Sandler's character in his new movie, The Do-Over is Max Kessler. My name is Max Kessler. Oh yeah, and I look just like him."
