Television Series – Comedy and two Screen Actors Guild Awards he shared with the cast for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. His

"appearances" section - in the MLB All Star Bash folder. Enjoy!
24, 2014 - On August 9th, you can catch Jamie in "Stranded In Paradise" - which will air on The Hallmark Channel. Starring with him
in it is Vanessa Marcil (General Hospital). Here's the scoop: The movie was filmed this month on location in
San Juan, Puerto Rico. It was written by
Tracy Andreen and is based on the Women of Faith fiction novel that was written by Lori Copeland. Synopsis: Tess Nelson (Marcil) is a poised
and confident human resources executive who is aiming for a well-deserved promotion. But when her boss informs her she's being laid off instead, Tess is furious and
worried about letting down her demanding mother, Mona (Cindy Pickett). Determined to use a business trip to an HR convention in Puerto Rico to score a new job, she
is discouraged when the trip is a disaster from the start, and an approaching hurricane makes it impossible to fly home. But after bumping into a handsome fellow traveler,
Carter (Denton), Tess opens up to the possibilities beyond her desk job, and the couple's adventures on the island bring them closer while the hurricane rolls in. With help
from a fearless and friendly local, Stella (Gladys Rodríguez), Carter and Tess take shelter, and Tess sees taking an unanticipated risk could lead her to a happiness she
never dreamed of, and a love that goes beyond a week in paradise.
t June 9, 2014 - I don't usually post news about commercials here, but this one
marks a particular kind of "Jamie milestone" so I'm making an exception. Seems like every so many years, Jamie's derriere gets shared
with his fans. For JPAC people, this funky little tradition began with Jamie's appearance in the play, "Asylum". The next
sighting came in the independent film, "Undead or Alive". The current sighting is definitely more upscale than the first two, the fact that
it's so fleeting helping to make it more tastefully done, one might say :-) All things considered, and assuming that a "stunt behind"
wasn't employed for the latest effort, I'd say that the area in question has held up rather well over the years. Take a look for yourself, see
what you think and ... ENJOY.
t May 15, 2014 - As one of the people from JPAC put it, "And another year has gone by."
How do we know? Because MLB has announced this year's date for the Taco Bell® All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game, which will be on July 13th at Target Field.
The Softball Game will air on ESPN immediately following the Home Run Derby on Monday, July 14th. As a Minnesota resident, Jamie will join local TV personality Andrew Zimmern
and Minnesota professional sports stars Adrian Peterson, Zach Parise, Kevin Love, and Maya Moore.
Joining them will be Jon Hamm from the TV show "Mad Men" and former Twins Jack Morris and Jim Thome.
I'm sure that we'll have more info for you before July, so keep an eye out!
21, 2014 - Added a few new snaps from Jamie's recent appearance to the 2014
Photo page. Take a look!
15, 2014 - See Jamie at the College Town Film Festival, in State College, PA on April 18, 2014.
Admission is free for Penn State students and $5.00 cash at the door for everyone else. All seating is first come, first served. The seminar
begins at 10:00 am and covers: Auditioning in the Electronic Age and the Business of Acting with James Denton, Marta Milans,Cameron Fife and Rane Jameson
and the Q&A is focused on the business of acting and the wide range of approaches actors employ as they pursue a professional acting career. This seminar
provides insight into creative careers, both from the actor’s perspective and the perspective of the industry leader in services for the actor.
As always, check with the venue for schedule changes before heading over there :-)
t April 14, 2014 - Pure Flix, which is the largest inspirational film
studio in the world and has produced, acquired, marketed, and distributed nearly 100 faith and family-friendly properties, begins production
on "DANCER AND THE DAME" in West Monroe, Louisiana this week. According to their press releases, the film stars Billy Gardell from the CBS sitcom "Mike and Molly"
and (of course, or I wouldn't be touting it here lol) James Denton. The plot pairs Gardell's character ("Dancer") with a German shepherd sidekick in a cop-buddy movie ... and that's the
extent of what I know about the plot and/or the movie (including anything about Jamie's role), so keep an eye out for more news of this production in the weeks and months to come!
8, 2014 - While most people were watching the Olympics opening ceremony, the 22nd Annual Movieguide Awards Gala was held last night at the Hilton Universal
(in Universal City). Jamie won for Outstanding Performance by an Actor for his role in "Grace Unplugged"! The gal who played Jamie's
daughter in the film, AJ Michalka, also took home Outstanding Performance by an Actress. In addition "Grace Unplugged" received an award for being a
top ten Family Film of the year, AND took the grand prize, "The Epiphany Award" for Most Inspirational Film of 2013. Couldn't be happier for Jamie
and for the cast and crew of "Grace Unplugged"! If you missed it in the theaters, "Grace Unplugged" comes out on DVD on Tuesday :-)

accepting his own award.

10, 2014 - First ... HAPPY NEW YEAR from JamesDenton[dot]com!
Second ... I've been given news by one of Jamie's fans that
he's currently in production, in Amarillo, Texas, on a new movie. The
movie is "Revelation Road - The Black Rider" and it's the third in the
series. Posted below are a couple of snaps from the set.
Third ... CLICK
HERE for the URL site that Maja posted, with the info, straight from the
horse's mouth on it ... so enjoy!
8, 2013 - GO SEE JAMIE IN "GRACE UNPLUGGED"!!! Use the
link at the end of the September 26 news item, to see if it's playing anywhere
near you ...
My husband and I went to see it on Monday and we enjoyed it a lot!
Jamie's performance was absolutely wonderful! And I love, love, loved the music ... I've already bought it from iTunes and
have been listening to it on my iPod. Yes, the movie and the music are mostly religious in nature, but it's a very modern and a very moving story and it addresses the kind of problems
that families are facing these days - even families of faith ... and maybe *especially* families of faith.
Bottom line? See it, if you get the opportunity. If you're a person of faith, I have no doubt that you'll love it and if you aren't ... it's
not overly preachy - really, there's just an extra person at the table, and that person
just happens to be God :-)
t July 5, 2013 -Warning! There's a "James Denton" site up on Facebook
(https://www.facebook.com/james.denton.564/about ) but IT'S NOT JAMIE ... it's another fake put up by another loser imposter.
I've posted this before, but in light of the above it bears posting again: JAMIE DOESN'T DO
ANY SOCIAL MEDIA ... not Facebook, not Twitter, not anything. He has
told me a hundred times that he simply doesn't feel that he has anything to say in that medium. If the day comes that he changes his mind, you'll hear about it here. Until then,
if you don't see it HERE, then whatever social media site you see is NOT him (and feel free to let Facebook, Twitter, whichever know about it - refer them here!).
bit of Jamie's official website info ... Yes, this IS Jamie's
"official" website. We also have a sister site in Germany ...
In the "old" days, before Jamie
became so well known, he had an e-mail address here and people used to be able
to reach him via this site. But those days are long gone and no one has
been able to contact Jamie via this site for about 10 years now.
you want to get in touch with him - because you want him to host something, to
sponsor something, to take part in something, or simply because you want to say
something nice about the last thing in which you saw him perform ... for
whatever reason ... let your fingers do the searching and use your web skills to
find out who his current agent/manager/and-or publicist is and send your
"Jamie contact request" through them. I'm just his webmaster,
which means that I'm not the appropriate person for you to attempt to use to
contact him. Moreover, I'm in California and he's in Minnesota, so it's
not as though I can just reach out to him. So, iif you have something
about which you want to contact Jamie, please be professional about it and go
through the people who are paid to field your requests on his behalf.
Thanks in advance! t t t

PLEASE NOTE: JAMIE NEVER SEES ANY
E-MAILS TO ME so please do not attempt to contact him through me. He has chosen to have his contact information removed from
his site. I don't have any more information than that to offer anyone. Thanks in advance for not making me repeat this in
an e-mail to you :-)
