Among his other projects, James is best known for voicing characters in numerous popular animations, including Hotel Transylvania 1-3.
Kevin James is an actor and comedian known for his nine-season television series, “The King of Queens.”
Kevin James began his career in comedy in the late 1990’s by playing Doug Heffernan on the show The King of Queens. Kevin received fame through the show’s conclusion in 2007, after which he went on to star in films such as Paul Blart: Mall Cop, and Here Comes the Boom. Kevin James came back to TV with a new show on CBS called Kevin Can Wait.
Kevin James was born on April 26, 1965 in Mineola, New York as Kevin George Knipfing. The Knipfings moved to Stony Brook, Long Island when the actor was twelve years old. He excelled in sports and graduated high school four years early. He continued playing football at SUNY Cortland and majored in sports management.
At Cortland, James developed a love for public speaking, and while back home on Long Island, he auditioned for a comedic part in a Shoreham-Wading River Community theater production. James was chosen as the lead and impressed audiences in the role. Based on the strength of the audience’s reaction and his burgeoning love for comedy, he chose not to continue attending college. Instead, he spent time with his brother Gary Valentine, who had performed regularly at Long Island’s now-defunct East Side Comedy Club in Huntington Station. At the club, James also became friends with actor and comic Mookie Barker.
During his time with the troupe, Kevin developed a friendship with club owner Richie Minervini and also adopted the stage name Kevin James as an homage to a favourite teacher. Minervini offered James a five-minute stand-up slot at the comedy club, and he lept at the opportunity. His official comedy debut was a raging success, and he soon became a regular presence on the Long Island club circuit, where he befriended fellow up-and-comer Ray Romano. To make ends meet, James worked at a local warehouse.
James spent roughly 10 years developing and perfecting his act, and eventually transitioned to performing in New York City. As he established himself, he became a frequent late-night talk show guest, and was eventually invited to perform on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. In 1996, his performance at the Montreal Comedy Festival earned him a network development deal, and after making several appearances on Romano’s sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, Romano passed the script for James to CBS head Les moonves who liked James’ everyman approach to comedy.
In September 1998, CBS premiered The King of Queens. Starring James as “average Joe,” Doug Heffernan, Leah Remini as his sharp-tongued wife and Jerry Stiller as his eccentric father in law, the show was impossible to ignore in its prime-time slot. After 9 seasons, The King of Queens—which made James an Emmy nominee—cancelled production in 2007.
James returned to TV in 2016 as Kevin Can Wait. He was joined by his old partner, Leah Remini in season 2. The show was renewed for a second season in 2017.
After Netflix decided to end its association with actor Kevin Spacey in light of sexual harassment allegations, a Change.org petition circulated online, calling for the role of Frank Underwood, which he played on the show House of Cards, to be replaced with James. The petition so far has nearly 18,000 signatures to date.
James teamed up with Romano to co-star in an HBO special entitled Making the Cut: The Road to Pebble Beach (2005). The production garnered a Sports Emmy nomination. That same year, James made his feature film debut opposite Will Smith in the romantic comedy, Hitch.
In 2007, he teamed up with Adam Sandler for I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. In 2009, he wrote Paul Blart: Mall Cop in which he also starred. In 2010, James teamed up with Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade to make the movie Grown Ups.
James tested different types of comedy in his later film The Dilemma (2011) and went back to comedic films with Zookeeper (2011) Hotel Transylvania (2012) and Here Comes the Boom (2012). He also did sequels including Grown Ups 2 (2013) and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015), before diving into new roles in True Memoirs of an International Assassin (2016) Sandy Wexler (2017).
James married his longtime girlfriend, Steffiana De La Cruz, in 2004 at St. Edward Catholic Church, and welcomed their first child, Sienna-Marie, in 2005. The couple had three more children: daughter Shea Joelle in 2007, son Kannon Valentine in 2011 and daughter Sistine Sabella in 2015.
