'The Zookeeper' follows a group of talking animals that break their code of silence in order to help their beloved zookeeper (James) get the attention of a beautiful woman. The voice cast includes Sylvester Stallone, Adam Sandler, Cher, Jon Favreau and Judd Apatow.

Kevin James' other credits include the title role in 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop' and the second-half of the title role in 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry.' He'll next be seen opposite Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade in 'Grown Ups' (pictured), opening June 25.
