Getting back to the movie world, Kevin James, illustrious actor of “Paul Blart: Mall Cop,” and “Overeaters Anonymous (haha, he’s fat!)” fame has soiled the proverbial gym shorts of the MMA world by agreeing to star in a film being produced by Sony Pictures (and quite possibly Lucifer) about the zany side of MMA.
“James is attached to play a physics teacher whose school faces drastic cutbacks. In an attempt to save his best friend’s job and the music program his students love, he moonlights in the octagon as a mixed martial arts fighter, ultimately leading to brawling.”
And yet, guys like Keith Jardine have to eat out of dumpsters instead of fighting under the UFC banner. That’s awesome.
So, who’s gonna direct this “masterpiece,” anyway? M. Night Shyamalan? (Laughs heartily, rereads article carefully, sweats bullets).
Contrarians may be tempted to point to this as yet another positive sign for MMA, and UFC in particular, and furthermore, definitive proof of the growth in acceptance of MMA as a legitimate sport and mainstream form of entertainment. A movie can only help UFC, right? Allow me to submit my counterargument:
[Editor's note: TF choked himself out before the trailer was complete. I guess that means he thinks this Kevin James movie will be bad. Personally, I loved "King of Queens." That chick that was supposed to be his wife was hot!]
