In 2018, he appeared notably in the Steven Spielberg/Universal blockbuster Jurassic World: Ancient Futures. He was seen opposite Meryl Streep in The Laundromat for Steven Soderbergh, and will next star in the period drama Emperor alongside Bruce Dern and Ben Robson.

For his starring role opposite Genevieve Bujold in the Samuel Goldwyn film Still Mine (Toronto Film Festival Premiere/ Top Ten Canadian Films of 2012), James won the Best Actor Award at the 2013 Canadian Film Awards, a Genie Award, and the Best Actor Award at the Seattle International Film Festival. Cromwell won a 2013 Emmy Award for his turn opposite Jessica Lange and Lily Rabe on "American Horror Story: Asylum" and currently recurs on HBO's "Succession" opposite Brian Cox. Last year he appeared in two season-long arcs concurrently on Epix's "Berlin Station" opposite Richard Jenkins and on Starz' "Counterpart" opposite JK Simmons.
He earlier starred opposite Lee Pace on AMC's "Halt & Catch Fire," starred in the HBO miniseries "The Young Pope" opposite Jude Law and Diane Keaton, and appeared in a multi-season arc on the TBS comedy "The Detour" playing Jason Jones' mysterious, wily father-in-law.

James' body of work encompasses dozens of miniseries and MOWs, including TNT's "A Slight Case of Murder," HBO's "Angels in America," "West Wing," "Picket Fences," "Home Improvement," "L.A. Law" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation."
Cromwell has made innumerable stage appearances, including the Centennial CTG/Los Angeles production of Waiting for Godot, and productions of Hamlet, The Iceman Cometh, Devil's Disciple, All's Well That Ends Well, Beckett and Othello, in many of the country's most distinguished theatres, including the South Coast Repertory, the Goodman Theatre, the Mark Taper Forum, the American Shakespeare Festival, Center Stage, the Long Wharf Theatre and the Old Globe. He played A. E. Houseman in the American premiere of Tom Stoppard's The Invention of Love at A.C.T. in San Francisco and in fall 2014, he played 'Rupert Murdoch' in David Williamson's controversial play Rupert at Theatre Royal in Sydney, Australia. Cromwell has directed at resident theatres across the country and was Founder and artistic director of his own company, Stage West, in Springfield, Mass. Born in Los Angeles, Cromwell grew up in New York and Waterford, Connecticut, and studied at Carnegie Mellon University (then Carnegie Tech). His father, John Cromwell, an acclaimed actor and director, was one of the first presidents of the Screen Directors Guild. His mother, Kay Johnson, was a stage and film actress.
Bill and Nancy have spent fifty full years as husband and wife. They practically breathe in unison, and can anticipate each other's every sigh, snore and sneeze. But just as they settle comfortably into their new home in Grand Horizons, the unthinkable happens: Nancy suddenly wants out. As their two adult sons struggle to cope with the shocking news, they are forced to question everything they assumed about the people they thought they knew best. By turns funny, shocking and painfully honest, Bess Wohl's new play explores a family turned upside-down and takes an intimate look at the wild, unpredictable, and enduring nature of love. Written by Bess Wohl, GRAND HORIZONS is playing at the Hayes Theater (240 W 44th Street) on Broadway through March 1, 2020.
