Sean Payton

Kevin James is about to play a movie role Saints fans will not want to miss.

According to NBC Sports’ Peter King, the “The King of Queens” and “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” star will play Saints coach Sean Payton in the upcoming Netflix movie “Home Team.” Payton has had input on the Adam Sandler-produced project, according to King.

The film, which begins shooting in New Orleans and Los Angeles next month, will feature the time when Payton coached his son Connor’s sixth-grade team during his Bountygate suspension in 2012.
