WTH? Eek

They are killing off the wife Donna and replacing her with Leah Remini! Apparently the actress who played the wife was fired after this first season ended for unknown reasons and they are taking the show in a new direction.

Uhh, so basically King Of Queens 2.0?

This is pretty bizarre and I wonder how this show will do going forward.

Kevin Can Wait Is Killing Off Its Female Lead—But Why?

I used to be a fan of his until I started hearing about what he's like off-screen. Apparently Kevin James is 180 degrees opposite of Dwayne Johnson.

He also seems to be very difficult to work with on set and if he doesn't like an actor/actress, they're gone. I don't watch anything with him in it anymore.

Huh. Didn't watch it faithfully, but it was kind of funny. Why didn't they just keep shooting "The King of Queens" if those two are just magic together?

That would be a mistake.
I liked K of Q but let it die and move on.
The new show is good and his character wife is great in the role.
Leah Remini starts to get on my nerves after a while.
Big Mistake. Frown

I never knew he was a giant douchebag in the real world until I read that here, always thought he was the chubby, goofy "aww shucks" kind of guy he plays on the screen.

IMO, I think this move just killed his show.

All they need to do now is bring in Jerry Stiller.

Was never a big fan of King. This new show was OK, can't say I'll be too upset when it tanks and goes away

I also heard about what he's like behind the scenes and kinda ruined him for me. I don't mind him IN an Adam Sandler movie every once n a while but other then that meh I don't care.

His off-stage douchiness that I read about turned me off too.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Yep.

Unamused to say the least. This blog entry gives a bit more detail.

The guy's a one trick pony but he thinks he's Elvis.

I've got news for this overrated douchebag- people tuned into King of Queens to look at Leah Remini. If it weren't for her, you'd be forgotten now, superstar. It's the truth. You wouldn't have gotten those shit movies you've made or anything if it hadn't been for that series, and the reason that series thrived wasn't because of you.

And now here she comes to save your limp ass once again.

Kevin James went to the same college I graduated from, State University of New York (SUNY) Cortland. I graduated in 1975, he went many years later and (I think) dropped out.

Our alumni newsletter has mentioned him a few times.
