With James' newest series Kevin Can Wait bringing all of the nostalgia back, fans have started to wonder what's become of the other stars of the show. After ten years off the air, where are the cast members of King of Queens?
After King of Queens, James' career took off. He starred in multiple films with Adam Sandler, including I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, Grown Ups, and The Zookeeper.
The work with Sandler made James a bit of a household name, and it helped him move forward in his career as a producer.
Back in 2016, James debuted Kevin Can Wait on CBS, his first TV series since King of Queens. He stars and produces in the series, which became the most-watched new comedy on TV last season, so it's no surprise that a second installment was ordered.
Aside from Kevin James, Leah Remini was the only cast member to appear in all 206 episodes of King of Queens, where she played James' on-screen wife Carrie Heffernan.
Recently, Remini has unveiled the highly-celebrated documentary about her conflict with the Church of Scientology, called Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.
In the season one finale of Kevin Can Wait, Remini was brought on to play Kevin's former police partner Vanessa. The chemistry between the two actors hadn't slipped since the King of Queens days, so the producers decided to bump up Remini to a series regular in season two.prevnext
The famous father of comedian Ben Stiller was the third major star of King of Queens, appearing in all-but ten episodes.
Stiller played Arthur, the lovable father-in-law to Heffernan, who lived in the basement of the young couple's home.
Earlier this month, Stiller celebrated his 90th birthday, but he's still doing a bit of acting here and there. He reprised his role of Maury in Zoolander 2 last year, and lent his voice to Planes: Fire & Rescue in 2014.prevnext
Like James, Patton Oswalt saw a huge career lift after appearing in King of Queens, where he played Spence Olchin in 162 episodes.
Oswalt has appeared in numerous shows and movies, including Young Adult, Justified, Two and a Half Men, Nature Calls, Parks and Recreation, and many others. The actor was recently featured as a guest star on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, and will star in the upcoming comedy series A.P. Bio.
The actor suffered through a tragedy in 2016, when his wife of 11 years, Michelle McNamara, sadly passed away. The couple had one daughter, eight-year-old Alice.prevnext

After serving as a UPS driver on King of Queens for nine years, Williams moved on to several other TV roles. Most notable among them, Detective Jeffries in the celebrated series The Affair.
Recently, Williams landed a role on the Bryan Cranston Amazon series, Sneaky Pete.prevnext
Gary Valentine played Doug's cousin Danny on King of Queens, but the family connection isn't just on-screen.0comments
Valentine is actually the older brother of Kevin James, and the duo were both born with the last name Knipfing.
Being James' real life brother, it was no surprise that Valentine was announced as a series regular on Kevin Can Wait. The actor portrays Kevin's firefighting friend Kyle Gable.prev
