In 2005, James and Ray Romano executive produced and starred in the HBO Sports Special, “Making the Cut: The Road to Pebble Beach.” The documentary about the Pebble Beach Pro Am Golf Tournament was nominated for a Sports Emmy. His second comedy special, “Never Don’t Give Up,” premiered on Netflix in April 2018.
James was the producer, co-writer, and star of the hit comedies “Paul Blart: Mall Cop,” “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2,” “Zookeeper” and “Here Comes The Boom.” James made his feature film debut in 2005 in Columbia Pictures’ “Hitch” starring opposite Will Smith, and starred alongside Adam Sandler in “Pixels,” “Grown Ups,” “Grown Ups 2” and “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.” He also starred in the feature, “True Memoirs of an International Assassin,” for Netflix in 2016.
