Follow the wisdom of the great actor James Cagney you hit your mark you look the other guy in the eye and you tell the truth.
When I'm in London I do have the convenience of being close to St James Park which is also good for me because it gives me an excuse to get out and get some much needed exercise!
My name is James Edward Franco. Ted is a nickname for Edward. That's what my parents called me. I also got 'Teddy Ruxpin' a lot. It just got to a point where I got sick of it so when a teacher called out 'James Franco' my junior year of high school I didn't correct her.
I can remember exactly where I sat when my teacher first read Roald Dahl's 'James and the Giant Peach'.
In the 18th century James Hargreaves invented the Spinning Jenny and Richard Arkwright pioneered the water-propelled spinning frame which led to the mass production of cotton. This was truly revolutionary. The cotton manufacturers created a whole new class of people - the urban proletariat. The structure of society itself would never be the same.
In the movies Bette Davis lights two cigarettes and hands the second one to James Cagney. It was just so glamorous and romantic.
Anyone who can do the splits and come back up on the backbeat as James Brown and Prince can has my eternal respect. Prince who is a genius of the highest order can come back up while singing and playing the guitar.
I have quite a few different Bibles. Having rejected my parents' religion I still think the King James Bible is the most important work of literature in English. None of us can help being influenced by it.
It was really important in my relationship with James Caan that I understood the relationship between the family and the father.
As Bob Dole found out you can't keep a positive image while being your party's mouthpiece in Congress. That's why no legislative leader since James Madison has ever been elected president.
Honestly I don't listen to nobody else's music but my own. It's kind of like sports to me. You don't see Kobe Bryant at a LeBron James game - he just works on his own game. And that's what I do. I only listen to me so I can criticize and analyze and all those things.
James Cameron has always been way ahead of the curve in terms of the use of technology in his movies.
James Cagney Steve McQueen I loved all those guys. I grew up loving the movies but had no desire to be in them.
John Barry was my hero when I was about 13. His scores to the James Bond movies were the scores of my life back then.
Comedy. It was just huge in my house. Peter Sellers and Alec Guinness Monty Python and all those James Bond movies were highly regarded.
I'm the first to admit that I like going to or my memories at least of going to Clint Eastwood movies or Charles Bronson or James Bond.
Although charismatic James Dean is no Harrison Ford. In the majority of his movies sooner or later he got the crap beaten out of him.
So I went out and bought Hard Again by Muddy Waters. That was a big learning curve. I listened to that album again and again and again. James Cotton was the harmonica player on that album.
I agree completely with my son James when he says 'Internet is like electricity. The latter lights up everything while the former lights up knowledge'.
The Secret Intelligence Service I knew occupied dusky suites of little rooms opposite St James's Park Tube station in London.
Well well Henry James is pretty good though he is of the nineteenth century and that glaringly.
A James Cagney love scene is one where he lets the other guy live.
James Bond is quite serious about his drinks and clothing and cigarettes and food and all that sort of thing. There is nothing wry or amused about James Bond.
I know I had my equivalents in Adrian Lester and Lenny James when I was at drama school. I remember David Harewood doing 'Othello' at the National and Adrian Lester having done Cheek by Jowl's famous 'As You Like It and Company' at the Donmar. Not necessarily performances I saw but just the fact they happened was massively encouraging.
