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. "Then I realized, I'm only ten pounds away from 300!" After breaking the 300-pound mark, he made some lifestyle changes and lost more than 40 pounds. (The photo at right is from June 2011.) But based on some recent public appearances (at left, for example, in April 2012), the 47-year-old, who is currently shooting “Grown Ups 2” with Adam Sandler, appears to have packed on some of those past pounds ... could it be for the role?
