In the upcoming comedy, Kevin James plays a former college wrestling champ and current high school biology teacher at a failing school. As finances start to deteriorate and threaten extra-circular activities, as well as teachers’ jobs, James begins moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter as a way to raise money.
In the clip, which you can watch above, Kevin James tries to woo the drop-dead gorgeous Hayek, who plays the school’s nurse, but his attempts fall flat. Literally. (Hey, at least he fared better than Oliver Stone.)
“Here Comes the Boom” hits theaters October 12.
