Our Sean makes the cut playing Irish Tiger Woods

HOLLYWOOD actor Adam Sandler has confirmed Xposé presenter Sean Munsanje's cameo as an Irish Tiger Woods has made the final cut in his next blockbuster.

Doppelganger Sean was selected to parody the US golfer in upcoming big-budget flick The Zookeeper after actor/producer Kevin James approached him to take on the role during an interview for the TV3 show last year.

Although the part was written especially for him in a new movie starring Sandler, Sylvester Stallone, Cher and Rosario Dawson, up until yesterday Sean was convinced his scene would end up on the cutting room floor.

Speaking to the Herald, Sean (29) said: "I met Kevin and Adam at the Gravity Bar after-party for the Grown Ups premiere and they told me I'm going to be in the movie.

"They've already seen the final cut and they said my scene is hysterical so they kept it in."

The news comes as a significant boost to Sean after it was revealed his contract with Xposé is not being renewed and he will finish up in just a few weeks' time.

"I wasn't sure my part was going to be in the movie after the whole Tiger Woods scandal but I'm on cloud nine now."

The movie was originally due to hit screens in October but has now been pushed back to July next year.

"Basically the test screenings went so well that they decided it was in a position to be released as a big summer blockbuster. It's exciting and I can't wait to see it," said Sean.
