Adam Sandler on Forsyth St. for ‘The Cobbler’

Since few real-deal cobblers actually survived the advent of the new Lower East Side, Hollywood had to import one for the filming of the new Adam Sandler flick, The Cobbler. A fictional shoe repair shop called “Simkin Shoe Repair” is now operating at 110 Forsyth Street, and the neighboring barber shop was temporarily renamed to Jimmy’s Barber Shop.

The Cobbler will be camped here on Forsyth Street until the end of the week, so now’s your chance to really get to know Sandler. We hear he’s been hanging out inside the Don Juan bodega at the corner of Broome to stay warm.

As previously noted, the indie-drama stars Sandler as a cobbler who carries the metaphysical ability to assume the lives of the people whose footwear he fixes. It’s directed by Tom McCarthy. Meanwhile, another cast addition was announced yesterday via Variety – Downton Abbey expat Dan Stevens.

Oh yeah, and Method Man is in it, too.
