James Cromwell

Powered by imdb

Born in Los Angeles but raised in Manhattan and educated at Middlebury College and Carnegie Mellon-University, James Cromwell - the son of noted film director John Cromwell - studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon. He went into the theater (like both his parents) doing everything from Shakespeare to experimental plays. He started doing television in 1974, gaining some notice in a recurring role as Archie Bunker's friend Stretch Cunningham on All in the Family, made his film debut in 1976, and goes back to the stage periodically. Some of his more noted film roles have been in Revenge of the Nerds, Star Trek: First Contact and the surprise classic about a charming pig, Babe. He garnered some of the best reviews of his career - many of which said he should have received an Oscar - for his role as a corrupt, conniving police captain in L.A. Confidential.  See full bio on IMDb »
