James debut on Marvel Movie

James was also present in the Marvel movie “Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron” at the age of 55. He was the main villain of the movie and played “Ultron.” 

In an interview, James said that he wanted to do a Marvel film and had also talked with the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, and the Marvel movie actor Jeremy Renner

He said that at first, he got voice work, but he thought it wasn’t enough for him, so he tried to do something more. 

He said that when he tried to craft the role of Ultron, it was something he had never done in the previous period of his professional life. 

He said that it was an exciting thing to do and also an experiment for him that if a 55-year-old guy could embody an eight-foot metal robot which became comfortable for him. 

His father has obsessive-compulsive disorder

His father admitted having an obsessive-compulsive disorder during an interview with Rolling Stone. He said he has extreme obsessive-compulsive. 

He is very particular and relies on certain routines, which according to him, is hard for him because there are rituals he must do, and he relies on routine, and as a result, routine and ritual become entrenched. 

Though it manifests in an obsessive attention to detail and fixation work, and things don’t slip by, he is not very easygoing, he said.

His former co-star William Shatner told Rolling Stone that he has all his idiosyncrasies. 

He had to avoid walking by and watching people licking their fingers or spreading butter on a bagel because he could not watch people eating on set. 

He recalled smearing Vaseline on Spader’s prop glass intentionally to get his reaction. Spader would react with horror, he said.

His father says there was never a plan, and he is still doing the exact same things he did as a six-year-old

His father, in an interview, said he had not planned his acting career. 

As a kid, he used to put on plays all the time and would invite the neighbors and friends, but at the time, it was more a way to make some change to buy cigarettes, or bubblegum, or something like that. 

Besides putting on plays, he would sell anything that wasn’t nailed down in the house. 

He would go out and set up a stand out in front of their dorm and persuade the students who lived there to buy whatever his possession.

When he was 17, he dropped out of college in Andover and moved to New York, aspiring to become a private detective but ended up doing a lot of odd jobs. 

The first job he had in New York was as a busy boy in All Green restaurant

Besides that, he did all types of odd jobs, including shoveling manure at the Claremont Riding Academy

He would all the time fantasize about his career as a private detective or a mobster. He then started continuing with acting. 

He didn’t stop, but all of a sudden, he started earning a living from it, which according to him, was a lot better than unloading and loading railroad cars in terms of making a living. 

And also, acting work is not hard, so he kept pushing it, he added. 

He said that the terrible thing is that he is still doing the exact same thing he did as six years old. 

There is no secret to it, and there was absolutely no plan though there might be sort of fantasies and imaginations, but truthfully he is just doing the same thing when he was six, he added.
