Kevin James: New York Jets Fan
Actor and comedian Kevin James is a New Yorker, having grown up on Long Island. However, unfortunately for Michael Strahan, he’s not a Giants fan. Kevin is a die-hard Jets fan, so the two of them can barely be in the same room! Kevin likened it to keeping two animals who shouldn’t be together in the same cage.
Of course, Kevin did admit to having respect for Michael, despite the fact that he’ll never turn on his favorite team. He even got to attend a Jets game and do the famous Jets call. Michael said that The King of Queens is one of his favorite shows, and he would always get angry when he saw Kevin wearing Jets stuff!
Kevin James: Disciplining Three Kids
Kevin has three children, but as you might imagine, he’s more of the fun parent. His wife is the main disciplinarian, so when she leaves the house, the kids know that they’re in charge!
Kevin recently took his five-year-old daughter to the movies, and she had to go to the bathroom. He panicked, but eventually took her to the men’s room with him. He lined the seat with sheets and sheets of toilet paper, and then stood by the stall waiting for her– which totally creeped out all of the men who came in!
Kevin James: Training as an MMA Fighter
In order for his new role in the film Here Comes the Boom, Kevin trained as a Mixed Martial Arts Fighter. He plays a high school science teacher who takes up MMA in order to raise money for the music program in his failing school. Kevin trained and worked with real fighters, so he actually got really hurt! He also lost an amazing seventy pounds getting into athlete’s shape (most of which he’s gained back).
