Bio

James Remar is an American actor best known for his role as Richard, the on-off tycoon boyfriend of Kim Cattrall's character in Sex and the City (2001-2004) and as a homicidal maniac in the early 80s buddy comedy 48 Hrs.

He also starred as the dead father of the title character in the crime thriller television series Dexter, from 2006-2013.

Remar's early training with Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse and later with Stella Adler helped give him a tremendous dedication to authenticity in his work.

He has played a gay Nazi hustler opposite Richard Gere in Bent on Broadway, a hard, yet sympathetic narcotics detective opposite Matt Dillon in Gus Van Sant's independent classic Drugstore Cowboy, all the way to the tough customs agent in Jon Singleton's smash hit 2Fast 2Furious.

James' physical presence and dedication to a truthful performance has given him the pleasure of appearing in over 50 feature films, numerous television projects (both episodic and long form) and the New York stage.

He has played historical figures, Gen. Omar Bradley opposite Tom Selleck (2004) in Ike: Countdown to D-Day and Dutch Schultz in The Cotton Club, directed by Francis Ford Coppola (1983).
