Kevin James, who is he?
Kevin James is a well-known actor who has been on both television and the big screen.
What else do we know about the Emmy-nominated actor? He’s perhaps best known for his part in the CBS sitcom The King of Queens, but what else do we know about him?
Kevin James, 56, is an actor and comedian from the United States.
Kevin, who was born in New York, rose to the top of his high school wrestling team, just ahead of future pro Mick Foley.
Kevin had a brief spell on the varsity football team at the State University of New York at Cortland before suffering an injury and retiring from sports.
In 1989, he began doing stand-up comedy, and after appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he became famous.
Following that, he appeared on The New Candid Camera, MTV’s SandBlast, and the hit CBS series Everybody Loves Raymond.
Kevin went on to star in his own sitcom, The King of Queens, which lasted from 1998 to 2007 and earned him multiple awards nominations.
He also starred in the 2016 sitcom Kevin Can Wait and the Netflix series The Crew.
Following a cameo in 50 First Dates in 2004, he co-starred in I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry with Adam Sandler, appeared in comedy Grown Ups with multiple Saturday Night Live alumni, and had a key role in comedy-drama The Dilemma with Vince Vaughn.
Kevin’s net worth is reported to be in the range of $80 million to $100 million dollars.
Much of this is reported to have stemmed from his role as Doug Heffernan on the CBS sitcom The King of Queens.
He was reportedly paid up to $400,000 each episode at one point.
Kevin is married to Steffiana de la Cruz, a fellow actress.
After meeting on a blind date three years prior, they married in 2004.
Steffiana, 47, is most known for her parts in Paul Blart: Mall Cop and Zookeeper. She used to be a model.
She even starred alongside her spouse in several episodes of King of Queens.
The couple is rather discreet off-screen, although Kevin frequently posts charming photographs of their lives together on Instagram.
Kevin wrote on their 16th anniversary in 2020: “16 years ago today! You, the kids, Friday night pizza, and Sunday pasta are all I need… but that’s all… you, the kids, pizza, and pasta. Deo Gratias, I adore you.” He also expressed his love for Steffiana on Valentine’s Day, writing, “Happy St. Valentine’s Day my darling… Nothing will ever be able to separate us… I adore all of you…… Brinkwire News in a Nutshell
