Chris Weidman has been doing a little acting in his down time.

According to, the former middleweight champion will appear in an episode of Kevin Can Wait, the new CBS sitcom staring mega UFC fan, #KevinJames.

Weidman is set to play Nick, a rookie cop who teams up with Kevin James’ ex-partner. Naturally, it causes a rift between Kevin and his BFF, but also creates a one-sided competition between Kevin and the young super cop.

Weidman and James have been friends for some time, and even spotted together at a New York Mets World Series game in 2015.

James' former hit show, King of Queens, played host to a series of cameos by UFC fighters throughout it's run.

#KevinCanWait airs Mondays at 8:30 PM, but no air date for Weidman's episode, “Who’s Better Than Us?,” was provided.

Weidman will face Yoel Romero next month at #UFC205. This will be his first fight since losing to Luke Rockhold at UFC 194.
