Kevin James

Had the sports management program at Cortland University been more engaging, the world might have been deprived of the everyman humor and charm of Kevin James.

Born Kevin George Knipfing, the future comedian was a college football player and former high school wrestler (Mick "Mankind" Foley was a wrestling teammate) with his sights set on a sports career. After three years studying sports management at Cortland, he realized he wasn't on the right path, and returned home to Long Island, N.Y.

To break up the monotony of the summer, James got involved with community theatre. His enjoyment performing in -- and experiencing crowd reaction to -- a comedic role in a play led James to join his brother Gary's improvisation group.

After hitting comedy clubs with his brother, James realized he also had a flair for comedy, and embarked on a stand-up career that included appearances on "Star Search" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

Thanks to a breakout performance at the 1996 "Just For Laughs" comedy festival, James nabbed a recurring role on stand-up pal Ray Romano's new sitcom, "Everybody Loves Raymond," which led to his own hit show, "The King of Queens," in 1998. The show aired until 2007.

He made his movie debut in 2005 in the Will Smith comedy "Hitch." He then went on to star alongside Adam Sandler in "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry." Since then James has starred in a number of other feature films, including "Paul Bart: Mall Cop," "The Dilemma" and "Zookeeper." His most recent film was "Grown Ups 2," released in 2013. His next film, "Little Boy," is expected to hit theaters in 2014.
