'Zookeeper' Star Kevin James Reveals His Career 'Bucket List'
By Raphael Chestang
After starring in his own TV show and several movies, what could be left on Kevin James' career bucket list?
"I think it's going to be World Cup Soccer," Kevin joked. "I'm only in my forties now and it can happen."
One of Rosario Dawson's bucket list items was hanging out with her idol, Cher, who played alongside her in the new movie 'Zookeeper,' but Rosario never got to spend time with her.
"I'm really devastated by this because the only reason why I said yes to this movie was because I thought I was going to meet Cher," Rosario said with a lighthearted smile. "I'm just waiting for the premiere to happen and get that opportunity."
'Zookeeper' combines live-action and voice-over acting. Because Rosario plays a human being in the movie and Cher did voice-over for one of the animals, the actresses' schedules hindered them from coming face-to-face during shooting.
Ironically, Rosario did get to meet another music legend without even trying. The actress revealed that she was invited to do an appearance on "Lopez Tonight" because Prince was one of the guests and he specifically requested that Rosario be invited on the same day.
Kevin James, who produced and stars in the movie, also hand picked Rosario for the wonderful cast that includes Leslie Bibb, Adam Sandler, Nick Nolte and Sylvester Stallone.
"I've always loved physical comedians," said Kevin, who did some of the stunts in the film. "It makes me laugh and I have a good time doing it."
"I don't think you look at Kevin and go, 'Oh, that guy's really agile,'" said Leslie Bibb. "He's really fast on his feet and does a lot of his own stunts, and I thought that was really cool."
