Returning to the role of dedicated officer Paul Blart in "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" was a bit hairy for Kevin James.

For one thing, he noted that the uniform "fit a little more snug" this time around. But that wasn't the only thing: He also had to grow back Blart's noble mustache.

And there was never a chance he'd just have the props department glue one on.

"It's homegrown," he told the TODAY anchors on Thursday. "I did it in a weekend. I started late on a Friday night; Sunday morning she was in. It is organic — really organic, no GMOs."

Having the facial hair, he believes, will help make the movie as big of a success as the first one from 2009. "It's where all the power comes from, let's face it," he said.

We apologize, this video has expired.

Perhaps that's the kind of power that makes James such a natural on a Segway. Watch how he ran circles around TODAY gang later on!
