James plays a well-meaning, but helpless high school teacher who constantly falls flat when asking his hot co-worker Salma Hayek out to dinner. But when his school faces serious budget cuts that are going to result in ending all extracurricular activities, he comes up with a ridiculous plan to raise money by becoming a MMA fighter.
Here Comes The Boom is written by James and Rock Reuben, with Frank Coraci at the helm. The film also stars Henry Winkler, Melissa Peterman, Joe Rogan (as himself) and Greg Germann.
Columbia Pictures is set to release Here Comes The Boom on October 12, 2012.
