Whoa—the casting news just won’t stop this week. The Hollywood Reporter has brought us some new details about the movie “I Hate You Dad” which will star Adam Sandler as a father who moves in with his son, Andy Samberg, and quickly begins to feud with his fiancee, Leighton Meester. Oh, but the casting choices only get more exciting from there. Our favorite mother/daughter duo—Eva Amurri and Susan Sarandon—will also be in this flick, with Susan playing a sexy older teacher who seduced Adam Sandler’s character when he was younger.

Both ladies have great style — I mean Blake’s been chosen as the new face of Chanel, and Leighton’s just gorgeous. But who would win in a true style showdown? Let’s take a look after the jump!
“I had bruises all over my body. I had scratches everywhere from falling out of the window and from Leighton breaking things over my head. My neck was sore from her choking me, I actually had little bruises under my jaw from her hands.”

“She worked with psychologists; she really studied the illness of the character, so much that at times on set I was a little concerned whether or not she was there because she scared me so much! The look in her eye was so surreal. I was in awe at how much she committed to it. … People on set would mistake her for being sort of antisocial. She would isolate herself from everyone.”
