“In loving memory of Alec Musser. He was so kind professional and absolutely hilarious,” Hayek shared on Instagram. “His early departure breaks my heart. I feel so blessed that I got to meet him. My sincere condolences to his family and loved ones for this great loss.”

In the 2010 comedy co-written by Adam Sandler and Fred Wold, Musser played the role credited as Water Park Stud. The scene included Hayek, Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello and Joyce Van Patten at a water park. As the guys take the kids to a water slide, the ladies stay back to enjoy some downtime. They soon see a buff man looking their way and starts walking towards them.

“Hey, what’s up ladies,” the stud says in a high-pitched voice that takes the women aback. “I’m from Sascatchatoon! That’s up in Canada, eh? You American ladies ever been up to Sascatchatoon?”

The ladies erupt in laughter with Rudolph’s Deanne adding, “Everything was on steroids except for his voice.”

Hayek’s tribute also follows Sandler’s homage to Musser. Sandler shared on Instagram a still of Musser in the film and wrote the following: “I loved this guy. Cannot believe he is gone. Such a wonderful, funny good man. Thinking of him and his family and sending all my love. A true great sweetheart of a person.”

Musser died in his home in Del Mar, California at the age of 50, his fiancée Paige Press told us. Press didn’t disclose the cause of Musser’s death.
