Leah Remini had good reason to join the new ABC sitcom "Family Tools." The former "The King of Queens" star has a development deal with the network, and ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee asked her to be part of the comedy, which debuted at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Then Remini's mother weighed in. "She said, Who's in it?'" the actress recalled. After hearing the cast included J.K. Simmons, Remini's mom replied, "He's a real actor, Leah. You should do it."
