We're sorry, but we have to admit that we just don't think The King of Queens would have been the same without Doug's best friend, Deacon, played by Victor Williams. The cult series finished in 2007 and, while know that Kevin James has starred in several big blockbusters over the last ten years, we were left wondering what Victor Williams has been up to over the last decade.  

Kevin James (53) and Victor Williams (48) captivated the hears of thousands of fans as Doug and Deacon in The King of Queens from 1998 to 2007. 

Just like Doug, Deacon also worked as a delivery driver, was a father and an all-round cool guy. Fans of the series soon grew to love Deacon, played by Victor Williams, almost as much as they loved Doug

The popular series finished in 2007, but that hasn't stopped it going down in TV history and we know plenty of people who love a good The King of Queens rerun! However, the end of the series did not signal the end of Vitor's career.  

Even while he was working on The King of Queens he still starred in several other TV series and films. 

He appeared in an episode of The Practice as well as in films such as Me & Mrs. Jones, With or Without You and Bewitched.
