Personal Quote:

That's why I take on a variety of roles. I've played everything from a gay dancer in Cruising (1980) to Dutch Schultz in The Cotton Club (1984). James Remar is a student of life. I'm expressing myself by acting. I'm learning about myself and making a living. I hope to do much more of it, so I can contribute my share to the world. See more »

Trivia:

He was given an honorary name "Standing 20" during the filming of Windwalker (1980) by the Cheyenne. See more »
