Kevin James is welcoming another famous friend to “Kevin Can Wait”!
ET has learned that James’ real-life BFF, Adam Sandler, is guest starring on Monday’s all-new episode of the CBS freshman comedy. Sandler will play Jimmy, Kevin’s former police partner who is still on the job.
In the Nov. 7 episode, titled “Who’s Better Than Us?,” Kevin is jealous of his former partner’s fit new rookie, Nick (guest star former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman), and he sets out to show his old friend what he’s missing.
James and Sandler have shared the big screen many times during their cinematic careers in such films as “Grown Ups”, “Pixels”, and “I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry”.
Sandler also guest starred in James’ other CBS comedy, “King of Queens”, back in 2007, playing Jeff ‘The Beast’ Sussman for one episode.
This isn’t the first time that James has welcomed an old pal to “Kevin Can Wait”‘s first season! Last month, ET was behind-the-scenes when James was joined by his former “King of Queens” co-star, Ray Romano, who came on to the comedy to play a pushy salesman.
After being friends for more than 20 years, James showed us that he has Romano’s voice and mannerisms down to a tee as he mimicked his old buddy during our sit-down with them. Press play in the video below to see the hilarious impression!
Sandler’s episode of “Kevin Can Wait” airs Monday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
