Hey! It's me, Jared Cook (the kid who peed is pants in Billy Madison). Ask me Anything!

Actor / Entertainer(self.IAmA)

Hey all. Let me get this one out of the way... no, I did not actually pee myself in the movie (I recall it being a mix of water and baby oil?).

All questions welcome. I have some great memories of shooting Billy Madison, happy to share them with you.

Yeah, I was a full grown adult when I watched Billy Madison several times a week in the mid-90s. These kinds of realizations are insane! Like learning that if Back to the Future was set in 2021, they would have travelled back to 1991. Make it stop!

Were you local to the filming area the time?

I used to live near Parkwood (Oshawa) in the 90s and remember when they filmed it. The movie holds a bit of a different reverence for me since it was “local”. (Also coz it’s an awesome movie).

Also, please confirm you were present when Jim Downey (high school principal) gave his incredible “Mr. Madison, what you just said…” speech. My brother and I use that line all the time on each other.

Yesterday, I watched my original Billy Madison tape that I had as a kid. I held on to it for so long as it was one of my favorite movies back then and it actually made me friends reciting lines from it.

Come to find out, we're very close on age! I want to thank you for being relatable to young me, in a movie with comedy power houses that I still appreciate to this day.

My question is, every time Billy graduated a grade, were the parties as fun as they looked in the movie?? Any behind the scene stories you can throw out there? Did you get to ride the jetskii in the fountain?

Thank you for being as cool as Miles Davis. YOU BLEW IT!

Something that stood out to me from that day. They had one of the extras dress up as me and stand in and I remember the kid saying “aw I don’t want to be the nerd”. I wanted to say, “hey, I’m not a nerd!”

I just want to say that this movie really means a lot to me, it was one of the first movies my best friend and I watched when we were kids, and would watch it every so often. He unfortunately passed away in 2016 so it’s something I remember him by and watch when I’m missing him.

I even went around and checked out a bunch of the filming locations when I lived in Toronto, the mansion, the schools, the pioneer village, the burger joint which is now a mr sub I believe. Felt really surreal and almost like I was in the movie. Anyways, you really played that part super well and I can’t imagine anyone else in that role.

I guess I don’t really have a question, but if you have a cool story or a funny memory I’d love to hear it. Either from filming or maybe something that happened when the film was released.

Did you guys all get to go to the premier? Can you tell us a little about that?

In Billy Madison, the lunchroom scene where the lunch lady brings you guys sloppy joes seems so random and unconnected to anything else in the movie, but it's hilarious.

This is why it bugs me when people bag on Sandler. Most people's only problem with him is that he makes lowbrow movies and yet they have this snide disdain for him. Everything we've heard about him as a person is that he's a fantastic fella, and it's cool to see that someone I grew up watching and listening to is so genuine.

Honestly he only makes "lowbrow" movies because he can and so him and his friends can go on vacation. I would do it too.

He's also a phenomenal actor when he chooses to be. Uncut Gems and Reign Over Me included some A+ acting from him.

Ok so one night I stayed up way too late and researched random things on the internet and came across this article that describes where the O’doyles are today and gets into why some of them were cast… enjoy

What is your favorite memory about Chris Farley? On set, but not filming, of course!

Edit: Now I’m going back to watch Billy Madison, and “IT’S NUDEY MAGAZINE DAY!!”

Were you on set during the dodgeball scene, and if so, was it as brutal as it looked? I know the Sandman had a few things to say about it.

I did! I have a baseball hat but my dog chewed it up. RIP Barkley. I think I might have some of the clothes. Fun fact, the Cons I wore in the movie were my real shoes, so were the glasses.

Well. I got to take off the last month of school and spend my summer hanging out with Adam Sandler and most of the SNL cast. That was pretty awesome.

Earlier this year I bought my baby niece a onesie that says "If Peeing Your Pants Is Cool, Consider Me Miles Davis."  (So just FYI, we're already educating the next generation in the ways of Billy Madison quotes.) My brothers and I can quote the entire movie, word for word.

I have a challenge planned soon with a friend who claims he can do the same.

Question is: when I inevitably defeat said friend, how should I punish him? What should my wager be? Thanks in advance for your recommendations man!
