Each week, we highlight a historic or famous person named James. This week's famous James is:

James David Graham Niven (born March 1, 1910 - died July 29, 1983) British actor, better known as David Niven. He served briefly in the British Rifle Brigade as a lieutenant, then began his successful acting career in the 1930s, appearing in movies such as The Prisoner of Zenda (1937) and Wuthering Heights (1939). When World War II started, he quickly rejoined the military and served for six years, becoming a colonel; during the war his batman was Pvt. Peter Ustinov. After the war, General Eisenhower gave Niven the Legionnaire of the Order of Merit (the highest American order that can be earned by an alien). He then made more movies, including Around the World in Eighty Days (1956). The Bishop's Wife, My Man Godfrey, and The Pink Panther. Niven was considered for the James Bond role in Dr. No, and eventually played Bond in Casino Royale. Niven's quick wit was seen at the 1974 Academy Awards, when a streaker ran across the stage during Niven's introduction of Elizabeth Taylor.

The name "James" is the English equivalent of Jacob; the first Jacob in the Bible was the patriarch of the 12 tribes of Israel. "James" is consistently among the most popular names for boys in the U.S.
