MMA-Filled 'Here Comes the Boom' Trailer: Like Warrior, Only With Kevin James ...and, um, there's just one of him. Bear with me here: A slimmed-down Kevin James, who's actually looking kind of handsome here (or am I crazy?), plays a high school teacher who enters the octagon to raise cash as a mixed martial arts fighter. He's basically Joel Edgerton in last year's MMA pic Warrior, only — lucky for us — he's still Kevin James, so it's a broad comedy and not a gut-wrenching drama and instead of Tom Hardy he's got Salma Hayek to wrestle with.
