Comic actor Kevin James has long been a familiar face at UFC events, so we suppose it was only a matter of time before this happened. According to a report on deadline.com (via MMAMania) the star of such critically acclaimed films as Grown Ups and Paul Blart: Mall Cop has his next masterpiece in the works, and yep, it's MMA-related:

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 in the UFC. The film is on a fast track, and production presidents Matt Tolmach and Doug Belgrad hope to get it into production next year.

What do you guys think?

Kevin is a big UFC fan. I'm sure he'll make sure that it doesn't portray MMA as a joke or as violent. If anything, should be some good publicity for the sport.

I get the feeling that his character's going to be a fat Rich Franklin. :laugh:
