Kevin James Is Taking on the Role of a Villain in Upcoming Action Thriller BECKY
Say what? Kevin James is our King of Queens, our Paul Blart: Mall Cop, our lovable goofball in so many movies and shows, but he is branching out and will play the bad guy in the upcoming action thriller Becky. James has taken over the role, which was originally set to be played by Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), who I also can’t picture as a creep, but I guess they are going for someone you wouldn’t expect, and that’s pretty fun! Deadline reports the film:
“centers on rebellious 14-year-old Becky (Wilson) as she’s brought to a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father in an effort to try to reconnect after her mother’s death. The trip takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run, led by the merciless Dominick (James), suddenly invade the lake house. Becky, not daddy’s little girl anymore, decides to take matters into her own hands.”
This sounds like it could be really fun or really cheesy. We will have to just wait and see what happens. If they can go dark enough, it may just turn out to be cool.
What do you think of this casting choice? Does this sound like an interesting movie to you?
