The story of The King of Queens revolves around the marriage of "Doug" and "Carrie", who fight often but truly and deeply love each other. The situation becomes volatile, when "Carrie’s" father, "Arthur" moves into their basement…
Between the years 1998 and 2007, the beautiful Leah Remini played the role of "Carrie Heffernan", "Doug’s" wife. The legal secretary has a temper paired with a sharp tongue and when she lashes out, it doesn’t always end well for her husband and her father "Arthur".
Leah Remini still works as an actress. Her own reality TV show Leah Remini: My crazy family and I premiered in 2014 on TLC. In 2016, her documentary series for A&E, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath started, in which she describes her relationship with Scientology and explains why she left the organization in 2013.
Jerry Still was a working actor until the age of 85. He is in his nineties now, and has retreated from the spotlight ever since his wife passed away in 2015 after being his wife for 61 years.
He is the secret fan favourite of The King of Queens: "Arthur Spooner", "Carrie’s" annoying and sometimes even wacky father. A little fun fact: Did you know that he is the father of Hollywood super-star Ben Stiller?
What a sweet reunion! The actors Jerry Stiller and Kevin James always got along fabulous behind the scenes - contrary to their parts "Arthur" and "Doug" in The King of Queens.
Steffiana and Kevin first met on a blind date which was set up by his interior designer. The couple married in 2004 and have four children by now: Sienna-Marie (*2005), Shea Joelle (*2007), Kannon Valentine (*2011) and Sistine Sabella (*2015).
His role on King of Queens made Kevin James one of the most successful comedians in the U.S. He has starred in 20 movies until now, and since 2016 has another sitcom on AmazonPrime called Kevin Can wait. Fun fact: Even his long-time co-star Leah Remini has a little cameo on his new show.
Gary played "Doug’s" cousin "Danny" and Nicole Sullivan portrayed the naïve but loveable dog sitter "Holly". Do you want to know where they are now? Move on to the next picture…
When The King of Queens ended in 2007, Nicole appeared in a number of TV shows, such as "Rita Rocks", "Cougar Town" and "Bones". In 2006 she married Jason Packham. The couple has two sons named Dashel Pierce and Beckett Edward. In 2017, Sullivan then also featured in the Netflix series Disjointed alongside Kathy Bates.
Have you ever wondered why the The King of Queens-TV-cousins "Danny" and "Doug" have such a strong resemblance? The two are in fact siblings! Gary Valentine is four years older than Kevin. Today, he is still working as an actor, just like his little brother. Gary Valentine also appeared in some of his brother’s movies, like Paul Blart: Mall Cop, for instance.
In The King of Queens, Victor plays "Deacon Palmer", who is "Doug’s" best friend and also works at UPS. He is married to "Kelly" and has two children together with her.
Today Victor Williams is still working as an actor. He had several guest roles on TV shows like Fringe and Blue Bloods. Since 2014 he has a recurring role in the TV series The Affair, alongside Ruth Wilson and Dominic West.
In The King of Queens, Patton Oswalt played the part of "Doug’s" oldest childhood friend "Spence", who lives with "Danny" and works at the Metro ticket office. "Spence" is always on the lookout for Mrs. Right but he is not quite the ladies’ man he thinks he is…
Patton Oswalt has appeared in movies like 22 Jump Street, and guested on various TV shows, such as Modern Family and also had several other roles. Then, in April 2016 Patton Oswalt's life went upside down when the actor's wife Michelle McNamara suddenly passed away. They had been married since 2005 and have a daughter (*2009).
Merrin Dungey played the role of "Kelly", whom is married to "Deacon" and is also one of "Carrie’s" closest friends.
Prior to The King of Queens, Merrin Dungey had a small part on E.R.. After The King of Queens ended, Dungey was featured in The Closer and Revenge. The actress married her husband Matthew Drake in May 2007 and they had two daughters born in 2008 and 2011.
