James broke into the film world with the Columbia Pictures hit feature film Hitch,
starring opposite Will Smith. His voice was featured as the lead character, Otis, for
Nickelodeon Films' animated feature Barnyard. He also provided voice work, as well as
movement, for the role of Officer Landers in the OscarĀ®-nominated motion-capture
animated film Monster House for Sony.
