Although born in Los Angeles, Cromwell was raised in Manhattan, New York City. He is the son of actress Kay Johnson, and actor, director and producer John Cromwell, so certainly had an insight into the movie industry from an early age. He was educated at The Hill School, Middlebury College and Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University). Like his parents, he was initially drawn to the theater, performing in everything from Shakespeare to experimental plays.

Having first appeared on TV in “The Rockford Files” in 1974, in 1975, James Cromwell took his first lead role on television as Bill Lewis in the short-lived “Hot l Baltimore”, and appeared in “MASH” as Captain Leo Bardonaro. Cromwell has had additional successes on television throughout his career; playing the part of William Randolph Hearst, newspaper tycoon, in the television film “RKO 281” saw him nominated for an Emmy Award as the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Television Movie, followed by a second nomination for his role of Bishop Lionel Stewart in the medical drama series “ER” on NBC in 2004. These TV appearances added significantly to James’ net worth.

James’ more notable appearances on the big screen over more than 30 years in the industry include “Babe” in 1995, also “The Green Mile” in 1999, “The Sum of All Fears” in 2002, “24” in 2007, “The Artist” in 2011,“American Horror Story: Asylum” in 2012, and “Halt and Catch Fire” in 2015. All added modestly to his net worth.

Overall during his lengthy career, James has appeared in more than 60 films, and almost 100 TV productions, adequate testimony of his worth to, and popularity in the movie and TV industries. Additionally, James Cromwell has been nominated for an Oscar, four Emmy Awards, and four Screen Actors Guild Awards during his career. He won the 2013 Canadian Screen Award for Best Actor for his role in “Still Mine” and the 2013 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie for his role in “American Horror Story: Asylum”.

Aside from acting, Cromwell has long been an advocate of progressive causes, particularly on animal rights. Also, in the late 1960s, he was a member of the “Committee to Defend the Panthers,” which had the aim of defending members of the Black Panther Party, imprisoned on conspiracy charges in New York, all of whom were subsequently released. Interviewed by CNN in 2004, Cromwell still praised the Panthers – clearly he is unafraid of controversy.
