The Descendants 3 star was scheduled to have a part in the film before his tragic passing last year, having previously worked with Sandler on the 2010 flick Grown Ups before reprising his role as Keithie Feder for its sequel in 2013.

During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the 55-year-old comedian shed some light on how much of a great guy Boyce was and recalled that he even interacted with fans at his daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. "He passed away just a few days before filming," Sandler told Fallon.

"That kid was a great kid. His family is amazing. I watched him grow up and become a superstar," Sandler expressed. "My kids worshipped him. He came to my daughter’s bat mitzvah. He came and literally signed — I mean, that Bat Mitzvah was gigantic, there were 400 people there, and he signed every kids autograph.

The Happy Gilmore actor went on to gush over Boyce’s love for helping those in need, telling the talk show host that whenever he needed something from Sandler, it was usually always related to a charity event, which astounded the father of two.

"He was just the nicest kid. He would always have charities going on. He would always speak to me, 'Can you do this, can you do that?' It was always for charity. He never cared about anything else. Just a nice solid, talented kid.”

Fans who watched Hubie Halloween following its release on October 7 were quick to thank Sandler for his thoughtful message to Boyce, with some viewers insisting that the gesture had left them in tears.
