Personal Quote:

I don't like getting beat up much in films, but Jackie [Chan] could beat me up anytime. My first influence was Bruce Lee, and then I saw Jackie afterwards, and it was entirely different. When people ask me who I think is the best action star, I don't say Stallone, I don't say Schwarzenegger, I say Jackie. He's my influence, I learn from him, that's why I'm here.

Trivia:

Eulogies at James' memorial were delivered by the legendary Sidney Poitier (his wife worked for Mr. Poitier), his father Hubie James, his wife Christine Pan James & his best friend John A. Gallagher. See more »
