Kevin James: 'Paul Blart' movie sequel gives voice to a thankless job

CHST Banner

Working as a security guard is pretty often a thankless job. So the legions of guards who protect our workplaces, communities, and schools have found an unexpected hero: Kevin James’ title role in the movie “Paul Blart: Mall Cop.” That movie followed the foibles and triumphs of James as Blart, tracking an average day where he tried to both keep order, keep his sanity, and make the world just a little bit better.

It obviously struck a chord with a crowd beyond guards, though, because tonight marks the release of a sequel, “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.” James, naturally, returns to his role, but there’s a welcome new addition: Mexican heartthrob Eduardo Verástegui as co-star.

We met up with both James and Verástegui to get the scoop on the movie, James’ status as the “Rocky” of security guards, and their involvement in, yes, National Security Guard Day.
