Kevin James takes a beating in new movie

  • "Here Comes the Boom" opens in theaters Oct. 12th
  • Movie co-stars Salma Hayek and Henry Winkler

HLN’s Carlos Diaz compares the new movie “Here Comes the Boom” to a cross between  “Mr. Holland’s Opus” and “Rocky”.  And the star of the film, Kevin James, agrees!

The movie, which comes out in theaters October 12th, tells the story of a high school biology teacher (James) who becomes a mixed martial arts fighter to raise money to save his school’s music program. It co-stars Salma Hayek as the school nurse and Henry Winkler as the music teacher.

Watch the video to see how James coped with getting beat up on set and find out how he convinced Salma Hayek to play his love interest.
