After becoming famous with the beloved sitcom "The King of Queens" in the late 90s and early 2000s, Kevin James' net worth is probably higher than you would think, as he's made some really great career choices, including co-starring in some great comedies like "Hitch."
Though it may be the case that Kevin James' net worth comes mostly from the show where he co-starred with former Scientologist actress Leah Remini, the fact is that the actor has been in a great number of films over the past few years, including the "Grown Ups" movies.
He's a frequent collaborator of Adam Sandler, and Kevin James' net worth has risen in the past due to the SNL alum: this year alone, the actor's set to appear in two Sandler films, namely the science fiction comedy "Pixels" (where he plays the President) and "Hotel Transylvania 2," where he'll be reprising his role as the voice of Frankenstein.
Not feeling like acting and comedy were enough, Kevin James' net worth has come also from a new source in the past few years: along with Jeff Sussman, his manager, he created Hey Eddie Productions along with Sony.
James had his start as a producer during his "King of Queens" run, then creating his own company in 2007, and he's had a successful relationship with Sony Entertainment for a while now: he was the star of the studio's films "Here Comes the Boom" and "Zookeper" and, in 2009, he launched "Paul Blart: Mall Cop," a new comedy franchise he starred in as well as co-writing it.
The film's getting its sequel released this year as well.
Currently, Celebrity Net Worth lists Kevin James' net worth at $80 million - and his coming projects with Sony, including a sitcom he's set to star, will make his fortune grow even more!
