Kevin James on killing off his Kevin Can Wait wife: “We were literally running out of ideas”

  • James tells the NY Daily News that he was originally supposed to play a single dad, and that Erinn Hayes' character was a last-minute addition. "I get that people are like 'Whoa, why would you do this?' But it really felt like a thing like this was needed for this show to drive forward,” he said, adding: “The plot of the show didn't have enough drive," James said. "If we got through a second season, I wouldn't see us getting through a third one. We were literally just running out of ideas." James says he doesn’t see the show revisiting his TV wife’s death.
