How many celebrities named Adam can you think of? The famous Adams below have many different professions, including notable actors named Adam, famous directors named Adam, and several politicians named Adam. This list includes Adam West, Adam Lambert, Adam Scott, and many more.

Love him or hate him, Adam Sandler is definitely one of the most famous Adams on this list. Playing a variety of wacky characters over the course of his career, Sandler definitely has his own brand of humor. Not to mention, he created a movie empire by starting his own film studio, Happy Madison Productions. While outrageous slapstick is definitely the norm for the actor, he also has a serious side. He starred as the intense jeweler and gambling addict Howie Ratner in the Safdie Brothers' drama Uncut Gems.

Another of the famous people with the first name Adam is Adam Levine. He is the lead singer of the popular rock band Maroon 5, crooning on such hits as "Moves Like Jagger" and "She Will Be Loved."  Levine also has a small film acting career, mostly playing himself. But in John Carney's 2013 movie Begin Again, Levine got to play the role of Dave Kohl, a singer who leaves behind his girlfriend when he strikes it big in New York City.
