It was a royal reunion as King of Queens alum, Leah Remini joined the cast of Kevin Can Wait to play Kevin's old police partner rival, Vanessa Cellucci.
When Kevin was brought out of police retirement to join Cellucci in an undercover sting operation of a fraudulent art dealer, they played husband and wife, roles that Kevin James and Leah Remini were pretty familiar with.
As the old King of Queens duo basically played Doug and Carrie as cops, any fan of the hit show got to enjoy the nostalgic dynamic of Remini trying to keep Kevin in line. When Cellucci tried to arrange a meeting between her and the art dubious dealer, Kevin couldn't stop talking about the diner food, interrupting all the potential meetings. When Cellucci said she was trying to get information while he kept yapping about his burger, Kevin said, "I'm trying to make things look natural. It's called police work."
