Kevin James scored with Paul Blart: Mall Cop, so we were eager to hear yesterday’s news that he’s signed on as the lead in a new big-screen comedy called The Zookeeper, about a lonely animal caretaker who excels at his job, but has trouble meeting girls. Jeez, it was only a few weeks ago that mall cop was the hot new career in Hollywood. Have they moved on so soon? Is Seth Rogen’s upcoming mall security comedy Observe and Report already behind the curve? Quick PopWatchers, how soon will it be until we hear about another wacky zookeeping comedy in the works? And which profession will James tackle next?
