Kevin is here!
how much of the final movie was scripted?
That's a very good question. It's more than you think. You really have to stick to a story and maintain that. Within each scene, there would be 2, 3, 4, 5 takes. A lot more used. It seems like more improve, but it's not.
The MLB all-star games is in NYC....you going?
We're trying. We're working on that now, actually. I'm playing in the celebrity softball game, which is a guaranteed pulled hamstring and a lot of sweat.
Since Adam was the writer, did you try to get him to write certain scenes for you?
I just let Adam be Adam. He just takes over. Him and Fred just did it. You just follow suit. You don't have to ask, because he writes good stuff.
Who was the first one of you guys to say you were in for the sequel?
Since I stay at Sandler's house, it was probably me. He woke up and walked down the hall to his first guest room and asked if I wanted to be in it and I said yes.
You've played some great characters...which one do fans ask you about the most?
Good question...I get a lot about Hitch. I get a lot about the King of Queens, believe it or not.
Where there be a hint as to there will be a third in the movie
I think we have to see how this one does first. Although I'm looking forward to a fourth one.
Was there always a plan to do a sequel?
No. Definitely not. I don't think so. I think Sandler just likes having fun with everybody. I think he just wanted to do that again.
Hiya Kevin. Here Comes the Boom 2? My kids loved the first one.
I wish it did better. If it did better, it would require a seocnd. It's my favorite movie that I've done. Critically, for me, it was my highest critically rated movie. My fans say they really enjoyed it. But I don't think there will be a second one now.
Are you still in touch with Leah Remini?
I do. I've always kept in contact with her. Certainly not as much as when we were on the show together. Dear, dear friend. Love her lots.
Would you be interested in being a Bond villain? I think that would be a good role for you.
Little do you know, I've done two Bond films. Chubasaurus and Cheeseburger Max. Watch a little more closely.
What are you looking forward to the most about the upcoming NFL sesaon?
What I feel every season, you just feel like you're on a roulette table and you wish that your number comes in. The odds are getting worse for my Jets, but there is always hope.
fav venue for BAsketball, Football and Baseball games (college or pro) and if you need someone to go to games with you and sit courtside I am available
Baseball, CitiField. Used to be Shea Stadium. The Garden for basketball. Football? I'm not a fan of MetLife. I'd say Miami, because we had such a good time at the Super Bowl.
Hey Kevin, I know you're a huge MMA fan. What was your reaction to Weidman KOing Silva on Saturday?
I can't say it was too shocking, because he's 38. I knew Weidman was a tough, tough Long Islander, like myself by the way. People were saying that it was going to happen before the fight. Everyone that I trust was picking him. It wasn't so shocking for me. I don't think it's the end of Silva.
i live in port jeff , what was your favorite thing about growing up around here? least favorite?
Favorite part of Port Jeff was, I lived on Main Street, we had an apartment. I worked at a bar I bounced at. We had fun going out. The worst part was that the ferry sound would wake me up every morning. That was it. It was a lot of fun.
Why isn't Rob Schneider in this movie?
Under Shaq's foot. You just have to look close. His wife was having a baby, so he couldn't do it.
How blessed is it to work with legends(rock,sandler,and spade)?
Incredibly blessed. My whole career. Sandler is without a doubt the biggest part of it. He is without a doubt the one that made it happen. I hope to do many more with him.
Which scenes will make the audience laugh the most?
I have to say the final fight between everybody. It's kind of like a Braveheart scene with a bunch of fat idiots.
In high school were you a better football player or a wrestler? Did you ever wrestle your teammate Mick Foley?
I was definitely a better football player. Yes, I did wrestle Mick Foley. They recruited me because they needed a heavyweight. I learned from him. He was the other heavyweight there.
What do you miss most about your King of Queens time?
Just the family relationship with Jerry and Leah. It was so much fun with all of the people that we worked with. The time of my life.
I just want to thank the fans for all of your support, whether I'm enormous or slightly less enormous. It's appreciated.
