Role Description

James: (Lead) a young man with no pretenses. He wants to uncover every mystery and seek answers from places that may not have any answers to give. Tall, with a striking silhouette with chiseled features. He plays in a band. Sometimes James lacks social grace and a sense of what’s appropriate. His overriding concern is always being right, a bitter edge that occasionally gets the best of him.
James’ upbringing is in many ways similar to Rachel’s—in that he came from a broken home—except that his family was poor. He excluded himself from the glories of small-town American culture: football, hunting, macho one-up-man-ship, and church. Most of challenges stem from his internal pessimism and unresolved childhood disappointments. He is funny in an acerbic way, and possesses an innocence belied by anger that will switch on out of nowhere. He’s acutely aware of suffering in the world and feels powerless to help. James has a million friends, but only a couple that he’s close with—and those relationships often are strained.
