James is a recurring character of The InBESTigators. He is portrayed by Zac Mineo.
In the series, James is quite arrogant, rude and completely selfish, and has difficulty in understanding certain situations. One example was when he was angry with Toby because he is the star of the cricket team and also because he had surgery and he could not play sports, and even asking him to come back demonstrating that he only cares about victory. He is also envious, especially of Kyle after he demonstrates that he is good at math. His personality made him considered a suspect in several cases despite being one of the only students to not be a culprit in any case.
In this episode, James participates in the Disk Chockey Challenge, set up by Ben, whose goal is to put Disk Chockey in his mouth without breaking, however, James ended up failing in the challenge because he let disk chockey break.
James also trains football together with Mario, however, the relationship between them is half unknown, but as seen in "The Case of the Vanishing Koalas", James became envious of Mario when he insulted him saying that he could see him eating the Kakow Koalas, and that caused him to be accused by Mario of having caught them.
James is one of the boys who coach football with Kyle. However, James shows disrespect for him for not knowing math, as seen in "The Case of the Tricky Trimathlon" by sarcastically sending Ezra and Kyle a "good luck in the first round" and laughing. However, his malice turned into envy when he saw Kyle doing so well in the Trimathlon with his cheat sheet, considering it unfair and even started mistreating Ruby because of it. This caused him to be accused by Kyle of having erased the cheat sheet, however, as James was playing football with him at halftime, this causes the charges to be dropped, but he was somewhat blamed for the reasons for the crime because Ruby had feeling pressured.
James joins the school's cricket team together with Toby, which makes them friends and teammates at the same time. However, when he saw him losing his games because of the surgery in "The Case of the Fishy Fundraiser", James was very angry to see that Toby was selling lemonade instead of playing cricket and becomes mean when he asks him to come back. So, James went with Toby to apologize, but that fact and his behavior made him once again a suspect until he said the reason for going to Toby's house.
James and Justin prove to be friendly with each other and always play together (as seen in "The Case of the Unhappy Camper").
