Kevin James to Play PSU Wrestler in Sandler Movie
Many expected this to be a big year for Penn State wrestling, but nobody thought that would include a role in a major movie production.
James, a former high school wrestling teammate of WWF star Mick “Mankind” Foley, will apparently play a former Penn State wrestler trying to make it in MMA. He is best known for his roles in cinematic gems like Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Hitch, and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, as well as his role on the television show King of Queens.
Interestingly, this news was uncovered thanks to two Facebook posts from Worldwide Sports Supply – Wrestling, who posted consecutive updates saying:
“We just received a call from Columbia Pictures. They are buying an early 1990s Penn State replica singlet for an Adam Sandler-produced movie called Here Comes the BOOM starring Kevin James. Pretty cool.”
“I guess James is a former PSU wrestler that turns to MMA to help pay bills 20 yrs later!”
