Big Year for Actor James Clayton who appears on two Network TV shows, ‘Timeless’ & ‘The 100’, and is the lead in three features films: ‘Candiland’ ‘Residue’ and ‘Down the Line’

James will appear on CW’s ‘The 100’ in the May 17 episode, “The Chosen”

Hard work is paying off for Actor/Producer James Clayton in 2017, as he appears in two Network TV shows and is the lead in three feature films out this year. James appears in the May 17th episode of The 100 entitled ‘The Chosen’. In February, James also appeared on NBC’s Timeless as President Theodore Roosevelt. He is the first actor to play this role since Robin Williams in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb in 2014.

James stars in three feature films being released this year- CANDiLAND, Residue and Down the Line. In CANDiLAND, he plays the lead character of Peter, alongside Gary Busey (who plays Peter’s estranged father Arnie) and Chelah Horsdal (in the role of Tess, the object of Peter’s attention), in a story of intensified mutual attraction to the point of deadly obsession. James lost 55 pounds for the role dropping from 185 lbs to 130 lbs in a span of just 8 weeks. The film is available now in North America on DVD, VOD, digitally, and will appear on Netflix later this year. It is distributed by Viva Pictures and IndustyWorks Studios. Select theatrical screenings are set for this year with an ‘uncensored cut’.

CANDiLAND is the winner of a number of Film Festival Awards. James won Best Actor Award at the IndieFest Film Awards 2015 and at the Los Angeles Independent Film Awards 2016. And, as a producer, CANDiLAND won Best World Premiere 2016 Julien Dubuque.

James is also the lead in Residue, which tells the story of private investigator Luke Harding (James Clayton) who reads a book of sinister origins owned by a seedy crime lord Mr. Fairweather (Matt Frewer). Unbeknownst to Luke, the book is a much sought after supernatural artifact and Fairweather’s greatest rival, the enigmatic Mr. Lamont (William B. Davis) begins pursuit of Luke with his most truest henchmen Boston & Jacob (Costas Mandylor). 

The film will be released on July 18th, 2017 by XLrator Pictures & IndustryWorks Studios in North America in select theatres, as well as on VOD, digitally, and then on to Netflix later in the year. The film went into production close after wrapping CANDiLAND, so James had to regain his weight and add muscle mass. He built himself up from the 130 lbs to 190 lbs for this film.

In an ensemble cast, James is joined by Taylor Hickson (Deadpool, Twilight Storytellers: The Mary Alice Brandon File), Costas Mandylor (Saw Franchise, The Pledge, Picket Fences), Gemini Award nominated Matt Frewer (Orphan Black, Watchman, Max Headroom), Elysia Rotaru (Arrow, Girl House, Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Blaine Anderson (Scary Movie 4, Final Destination 5, Hot Tub Time Machine) and William B. Davis (The X Files, Continuum, The Tall Man). Residue is written and directed by Rusty Nixon.

In the psychological thriller Down the Line, set to be released digitally in Canada this summer, James plays nine different lead characters. In this film, a struggling comedian (James Clayton) wakes up trapped inside his mind and must fight alternate versions of himself to escape.

Later this year, James will be acting and producing the action/thriller High Caliber. Ex-Cop Charlie Rooker wakes up chained to a time bomb in an abandoned warehouse and must assassinate five crime lords for his captor before time runs out. Using the high caliber sniper rifle provided to him, Rooker must complete his task, save his wife, and bring his captor to justice before detective Andrews tracks him down. Additional cast will be announced in July.

James’ impressive list of past credits include his appearance in two episodes of Fox TV’s Minority Report, a starring role in the caper comedy Foodland, a supporting lead role in the horror feature Adam & Evil, a lead role in the thriller feature The Bentley Box, and a project that honed his comedic skills, leading in the head-banger comedy Black Bridge. Small screen credits include appearances on the hit CW series Supernatural and Fox’s Fringe. Clayton began his acting career at the age of sixteen when he booked his first role in K19: The Widowmaker, starring Harrison Ford and directed by Kathryn Bigelow.

In addition to his successful acting career, James is a busy producer with Motorcycle Boy Productions, an independent film production company based in Vancouver, BC. He has produced CANDiLAND, Residue and Down the Line with his producing partners Rusty Nixon and Blaine Anderson. They are currently in pre-production with their fourth film, High Caliber.

James is available for interviews upon request.
