Kevin James Jokes About Gaining Weight Again After Film As Fighter

In his new film 'Here Comes the Boom', Kevin James plays a high school biology teacher who becomes mixed-martial arts fighter in an effort to raise money for extra-curricular activities at his cash-strapped school.

James, who constantly jokes about his weight, is in some of his best shape for the film. Except the comedian acknowledges he no longer looks like the guy on the poster now that he's promoting the film.

So what happened?

"We shot the movie about a year and a half ago and a couple of things happened between then and now," he tells David Letterman on 'The Late Show'. "Like I had no idea that they sell peanut butter and jelly in the same jar! It's a life changer."

"Also Wendy's came out with the Baconator. Six slices of bacon, one burger! The train went off the tracks, that's all."

Asked by Letterman whether he really eats those foods, James quipped: "This isn't air!"

"It's tough. It's very tough. I knew I'd have to come promote the film. Right after we stopped shooting -- and I really did get in shape for this movie -- I said I'm going to give myself a little time to have fun and then I'll just get back in shape."

"Because when you promote the movie, you want to look like the guy on the poster. They want to recognize you as being in the movie! I kept looking and I looked at the calendar and saw Letterman. Oh, four months away, I said 'I can turn it around'. then I don't know what happened. I looked at the calendar and it said Letterman tomorrow."

"So I'm sorry. I apologize. I'm sorry, everybody."
