James hails from Dallas, Texas but moved to Hollywood to work in the budding film industry in Canada and Louisiana.
Although most notable for his performance as Jorge Lara in The Mechanic opposite Jason Statham, James has made a niche for himself as that guy who steals someone's purse, complains about it (ala the Caretaker on Scooby-Doo), and then gets beat up or rolled down a flight of stairs (see Beverly Hills 90210).
Luckily for James, the bitter purse snatcher shows up a lot in film and TV.
