Acting Career; Reel Life Father Helped In Heroin Addiction
Thinking to start in his career in acting, the 39 aged James relocated to New York to study film at the School of Visual Arts in 1997 but could not complete.

In an interview with Grantland back in July 2015, he disclosed that during his dark days, his on-screen father Chris Bauer from the series The Wire helped him a lot. He stated:
"He was really gentle with me, basically. He never made me feel like shit about myself. I think he might have been the first person who shepherded me into respecting my own talents.”
Also in a phone interview with Indie Wire in July 2015, James stated that it was hard for him to get out of the addiction. He said;
“There is no external means, whether it’s my career, or money or house or a wife or anything, that is going to set me right.”

He was deeply into his role as Corporal Josh Ray Person in the HBO's war drama series Generation Kill, which ultimately led him to adopt the clean habit.
Appearing on the David Simon's first project, The Wire ultimately led him to his biggest career beak Generation Kill, since then he has made a name for himself into the entertainment industry.
