Review for Kevin James: 

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.  Mr. James also starred in Columbia Pictures' blockbuster Grown Ups (2010) along with Adam Sandler; previously, Mr. James and Mr. Sandler worked together on I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007).

Mr. James broke into the film world in 2005 in Columbia Pictures' Hitch starring opposite Will Smith, but his comedy career started well before that as a stand-up on the Long Island comedy scene.  After being discovered at the 1996 Montreal Comedy Festival, he signed a network development deal to create his own sitcom.

The King of Queens, which premiered in 1998, ran for nine seasons on CBS with Mr. 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, Mr. James brought his stand-up act to TV with Sweat the Small Stuff, a one-hour special for Comedy Central.  In 2005, Kevin James and Ray Romano executive produced and starred in the HBO Sports Special Making the Cut: The Road to Pebble Beach; a documentary about the Pebble Beach Pro Am Golf Tournament that was nominated for a Sports Emmy.

Aside from his on-camera work, Mr. James's voice has been featured in the animated films Barnyard (2006) for Nick Movies, as well as Monster House (2006) and Hotel Transylvania (2012) for Sony Pictures Animation.
