Kevin James, producer, co-writer, and star of the hit comedies Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009) and Zookeeper (2011), can be seen this October in his latest film, Here Comes The Boom. James starred with Adam Sandler in Columbia Pictures’ blockbuster Grown Ups (2010) and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007), and he broke into the film world in 2005 in Columbia Pictures’ Hitch starring opposite Will Smith.

The King of Queens, which premiered in 1998, ran for nine seasons on CBS with James starring and executive producing, and it garnered him an Emmy nomination in 2006 for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.  The show concluded its run in 2007 but continues to air daily in syndication across the country and around the world. In 2001, James brought his stand-up act to TV with Sweat the Small Stuff, a one-hour special for Comedy Central. For more on Kevin visit
