The Actor...

James Huffman (SAG-AFTRA) has been an actor for more than 15 years.

He is officially credited with originating the role of CARTER in the Sam French publication of THE KING'S HORSES by David L. Paterson. THE KING'S HORSES made it's World Premiere in 2002 at the Pine Knoll Theater in Palenville, NY. He spent 10 years in New York City accumulating theater credits that include: WALLY in the campy comedy FISH BOWL, premiering at The Michael Weller Theater in NY in 2006; VAN COOPER in the Fringe NYC 2006 production of LIGHT & LOVE by S.P. Riordan; OFFICER BILL in Kenneth Lonergan's LOBBY HERO at Manhattan Theater Source; And part of an ensemble cast, playing various roles in LEE/GENDARY by Soomi Kim and Derek Nguyen at The Samuel Beckett Theater.

He was also an active member of Helga's Cookies, a NYC ("Harold") improv troupe.

"I learned and developed more as an actor performing with Helga's Cookies than any class or workshop I ever took. My biggest takeaway was a critical case of cojones." 

He has appeared on several soap operas (ALL MY CHILDREN, GUIDING LIGHT, AS THE WORLD TURNS and ONE LIFE TO LIVE) in small speaking roles as a Bartender (who HASN'T?) a wedding photographer, an FBI agent, a club patron, a cop and a caterer. In 2009, he appeared in SURVIVING DISASTER on Spike TV, playing an arrogant airline passenger who unsuccessfully tries to thwart a terrorist takeover.  He has booked national commercials for ESPN/Home Depot, TH PROPERTIES, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, SPIKE TV, and COMEDY CENTRAL.

If you ever watch the show BONES, you can catch a glimpse of him as the recently murdered "Spencer Holt" (Season 4. Episode 24- "Critic in the Cabernet" 2009).
