Kevin James talks about Zookeeper, losing weight for MMA movie
James said at first he didn’t want to do a kids movie, but he loved the script and the cast — which includes Henry Winkler and Selma Hayek.
He said he’s working on another movie where he’s a biology teacher who becomes an MMA fighter and ends up on UFC. He had to lose a lot of weight for it. James said that he knows he can never be that kind of fighter for a living.
James, who is a Mets fan, is very happy for Derek Jeter, who he’s met and considers friendly. “He’s just a good man,” James said.
