Actor Kevin James starred in the hit sitcom "King of Queens" for years, and more recently translated that success into big screen stardom with the hit flick "Paul Blart: Mall Cop," which has earned close to $150 million in the U.S. 

James was recently in Dublin to do some promo work for the kid-friendly film’s European opening, and he told national broadcaster RTE that the trip marked his first time in the Emerald Isle. 

“It’s beautiful. I never expected this,” he said, adding that he’d love to come back some time and make a movie.
