James Naughton began his acting career on stage, where he won Tony Awards for his starring roles in City of Angels and Chicago. James is also an accomplished film and TV actor. He's appeared on Brooklyn Bridge, The Cosby Mysteries, and Ally McBeal. On the big screen, his films include The Devil Wears Prada, The Good Mother, The Glass Menagerie, and The Paper Chase. Instead of preparing family members for political careers (like his Gossip Girl character William Vanderbilt—solid name, btw), James apparently breeds them for careers on-screen: his son and daughter, Greg and Keira, are both actors.
