Here Comes The Boom light on laughs, good for MMA

Kevin James' latest movie is more drama than comedy. Yet, the movie's use of MMA is very credible and perhaps accessible to a wider audience than current fans of the sport.

With the recent news of Kevin James starring in an upcoming film surrounding MMA, here we have a video of James training with Randy Couture. Looks like it's from 2006. I was the first to express doubt about this casting decision but he certainly doesn't look sloppy in this video.

The film is on a fast track, and production presidents Matt Tolmach and Doug Belgrad hope to get it into production next year." I don't know what to think of this. I guess he'll channel Roy Nelson? We know he's a big MMA fan but come on. Photo by Michael Buckner

I'm only surprised that it didn't happen sooner. Should be good though, as long as James gets the UFC and all the fighters he knows involved.
