At age ten, Jesse James
has already amassed an impressive list of feature and television credits and is becoming one of the industry's most promising young actors.
Most recently, James was seen on screen in two major motion pictures: Message in a Bottle with Kevin Costner and Robin Wright Penn and Gods and Monsters with Sir Ian McKellen and Brendan Fraser.
He appeared opposite Oscar® winners Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt in James L. Brooks' comedy-drama As Good As It Gets and opposite Kenneth Branagh in Robert Altman's thriller The Gingerbread Man.
