Kevin James made a name for himself as the husky delivery truck driver on the working-class sitcom "King of Queens," but in real life, the actor wasn't happy about his expanding waistline. Early last year the "Zookeeper" actor told David Letterman that the scale was his simple wake-up call. "I got on the scale and it read 290 pounds," he admitted.
