Uh, Kevin James the actor? That’s right. James is going to play Sean Payton in a Netflix movie called “Home Team,” produced by Happy Madison Productions. (Sound familiar? It’s the Adam Sandler company.) Imagine this: The plotline begins in 2012, when Payton is suspended for the season by commissioner Roger Goodell for the Saints’ bounty scandal, which gives Payton the chance to re-assess his life and put it in some perspective. As part of his new life, Payton becomes the offensive coach for his son Connor’s sixth-grade football team, the Warriors, in the Dallas area. (Thus, the “Home Team” title of the flick.) Filming of the movie begins this year. Payton read the script recently, made some corrections, and here it comes. My one thought about casting: James is going to need to lose a few pounds to play Payton.

Kevin James will definitely need to get in shape since that was Sean’s most fit stage, he was working out a lot then. I’m hoping this is actually funny and at least somewhat sympathetic to what Sean went through that year.

Kevin James as Sean Payton in a movie being produced by Adam Sandler's company on a streaming service that has a 99% miss rate on "originals".

I'm excited to see all the outrage here when this movie is a complete and utter disaster.
Yeah high probability this is gonna be awful.

He forgot to add that James is going to need to learn how to act.

Kevin James, Adam Sandler, Netflix. What could possibly go wrong? Besides, you know, everything.

Agreed. I'm expecting the worst. Unless maybe?:

The fact that Payton himself read the script and gave the nod without making any noise probably says it is. Whether that translates or not is a different story.
