Winona Ryder has been cast as one of the leads in Cheaters, the Ron Howard comedy. She plays Kevin James’ wife. Only in the movies is that within the realm of possibility…
Editor-in-Chief Nikki Finke - tip her here.

Haha. Yeah, because fat guys can’t have pretty wives. Am I right? *tap tap* is this thing on? Anyway, back to the playground.
Someone has to balance the ugly or no one would buy a ticket.
umm.. kevin james’ wife is a model… so not too out of the realm
Was Kevin James already rich and famous when she met and then marry him? Just saying…
They still live in the real world, so it contradicts Finke’s point.
Ron, way to push the envelope with the “hot chick married to the funny fat guy” paradigm. I can’t wait to see this brand new comedic works out. I bet it’ll really catch on in shitty sitcoms and badly written indie films.
Oh, I dunno…James IS married to a model in real life.
She got the role of “geneva”, who is kevin james wife and goes head to head with vince vaughn. She beat out every actress in town. Sheeees back!!!!!!!
Has it been that long since you have been on the east coast Nikki? You see the Kevin James / beautiful wife thing all the time in New York, Jersey and Philly.
i love Wynona and I too believe in second chances.
God bless you Richie Cunningham
You’re right, usually in real life the wives are uglier and fatter than the husbands.
How Kevin James continues to make a living in this industry is beyond me. Dude just ain’t funny in my book…I hope he thanks his lucky stars Ray Romano’s coat tails are strong enough to drag him along…
Because Kevin’s real wife is waaaaaay hotter than Winona.
she is really really hot
Really? You don’t think a big cool guy cool could get a reasonably attractive chick like Winona Ryder to be his wife?
No no Nikki. It is possible for someone like James to have a hot wife in the real world and in real life James is married to a model. But in real life, James is rich. That is what women are attracted to. You could be the fattest, ugliest thing in the world, but if you got paper, then you got the honeys.
So happy for her….She is one of the best actress of our generation
she was cute in lucas. but after that, it was all downhill from there. when she was working 24-7, it was because there was a big vacuum. and for some reason she was the only actress of her generation. then the 90s got competitive and she couldn’t hold her own and gwyneth paltrow and angelina jolie elbowed her out. but she was ok in alien 4 –i guess it was 4.
aaron, that’s one of the funniest posts i’ve ever read.
redact, have you seen james’s wife? she might model ski masks my friend. he’s still overchicked though…
Of course, Kevin James is married to a model in real life. But that’s because he’s a rich actor!! Otherwise, no, in real life, you don’t see this – at least not without some underlying reason to explain it!
Winona Ryder hasn’t been hot since Beetlejuice.
dude, she was waaaayyyy hot in Mr Deeds…
Yes, I guess you mean “in real life” Kevin James’ would look more like Nikki Finke. What a narrow-minded, stupid comment to make.
Ya think ol’ Kevin would have gotten that model/trophy wife if he was broke and not famous? Maybe she loves him for his cuddliness.
NF’s comment was dead-on…
A guy like Kevin James has a model for a wife, why? Oh, right, because he’s on a hit show, makes boodles of quan as Mall Cop, etc. and etc. This is, or can be, the case for ANYONE whose name we know and is in the public dialogue. That is not the point when it comes to selling some semblance of reality in a dramatic film… Let me expound–
I once read an article in GQ Magazine wherein the author was illuminating the very incestuous relationship between Money, Power & Sex. In it, he hypothesized “The John Malkovitch Test” during a period when dear and uber-talented John who I love and adore was being trumpeted as the new sex symbol. It went something like this, if memory serves: If John Malkovitch was the guy pumping these hot girls he was bedding’s gas, would they be pumping him back in bed? We need not even grace that with an answer to get the point…
So Kevin James in real life gets his just desserts; doesn’t mean his being married to a hot waif on screen bears any resemblance to the reality of most movie-goers, now does it? Anyone attacking you, NF, on this little aside is a little out of touch!
Please don’t get me started on how they tried to sell us Kathryn Manheim as one of People’s 50 Sexiest People of The Year – Remember that?!?
Kevin James is married to a model because he’s famous and has a shit ton of money. The movie still sounds like it could do alright.
Maybe you just wanted to end this news item on a throwaway line, but I’ve got to add my voice to the discussion on whether a Kevin James could marry a Winona Ryder in real life. Two thoughts: (1) As others already pointed out, you see this all the time in the Northeast. My neighbor in Cambridge is a fat radio personality, and his wife is a beautiful former model. (2) Winona Ryder is a talented comedic actress, but hardly looks like a starlet these days. Bear in mind that her most recent major role was as the MOTHER of one of the lead actors (Star Trek, of course).
Kevin James’ wife is smokin! What have you been smokin Nikki?
Hopefully the prop master keeps a close eye on everything…
I kid, I kid
