Kevin James and Salma Hayek looking at Here Comes the Boom
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Is Kevin James a legitimate A-list comedian? When did this happen? I feel like I was going along, minding my own business and then all of a sudden, Kevin James is a star. After the rousing success that was PAUL BLART: MALL COP, James has racked up the films. He can next be seen with Adam Sandler in GROWN UPS and is slated to star with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Connelly in the still-untitled Ron Howard comedy. But now he’s taking on another action/comedy with HERE COMES THE BOOM with buddy Sandler producing.
James wrote the plot that is still kind of secret, but it looks like another GROWN UPS co-star is involved as Salma Hayek is in talks for the female lead. To be honest, I didn’t give Mall Cop a chance and I don’t really have any problems with James. He’s a funny guy and he and Hayek should be a good match.
