Early life and education

Cromwell was born in Los Angeles, California. He is the son of actor Kay Johnson (1904-1955) and actor and producer John Cromwell (1886–1979), who was blacklisted during the McCarthy period. In 1946, his parents separated. He has ancestry from England, German, Irish, and Scotland. He graduated from The Hill School in 1958 and moved to Middlebury College and Carnegie Mellon University, where he majored in theater before leaving the academy. He began his acting training at HB Studio in New York City. He was attracted to the theater, from Shakespeare to experimental plays, as his parents.

Personal life

Ann Ulvestad was married by Cromwell in 1977. In 1986, the couple divorced. Kate, John, and Colin were the couple's three children together. Julie Cobb married Cromwell on May 29, 1986; the couple divorced in 2005. Anna Stuart, a former actor of Stuart's ex Another World co-star Charles Keating, married him on January 1, 2014. Cromwell lives in Warwick, New York.

Cromwell is known for his height; at 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m), he is the highest actor nominated for an Academy Award. His son John is even taller, standing 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m). In the 2012 film Memorial Day, John played the young Bud Vogel, while James played him as a grandfather, and both Cromwells appear as the same character at different ages in American Horror Story: Asylum (2012) and the first season of Betrayal (2013).

Cromwell's experiences of the Civil Rights Movement while on a theatre tour through several Deep South states in 1964 had a huge influence on him. Cromwell, a devoted student in Mississippi who was assassinated with two of his colleagues in 1964, convinced him to become an activist due to the courage of local campaigners and visiting activists. Cromwell later became involved in the anti-Vietnam War, and by the late 1960s, he was a member of the Committee to Defend the Panthers, a group formed to protect 13 Black Panther Party members detained in New York on suspicion of conspiracy. The 13 children were eventually released. Cromwell praised the Panthers in a CNN interview in 2004. In the 2016 United States presidential race, Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign was boosted by him.

Cromwell has long been a promoter of social justice, particularly regarding animal rights. After discovering a stockyard in Texas and being overwhelmed with the "smell, terror, and fear," he became a vegetarian in 1974. In the 1995 film Babe, he became vegan while playing Farmer Hoggett. He speaks out on animal rights for PETA, mainly on pig welfare. He was arrested in 2017 after a PETA protest against SeaWorld's treatment of orca whales, in which he spoke about marine mammals' suffering and premature deaths.

In the book Money Men, author Jeffrey Birnbaum explains how John McCain went out of his way to visit Cromwell as he advocated for Native American arts education in Capitol Hill.

Cromwell appeared as the narrator of the short film Farm to Fridge, a Mercy for Animals documentary.

Cromwell sluggishly attacked the Republican Party and the George W. Bush administration in an interview in October 2008, saying that their foreign policy will "either destroy us or the entire planet."

Cromwell was arrested in February 2013 along with animal rights campaigner Jeremy Beckham for disrupting a University of Wisconsin Board of Regents meeting while holding a graphic image of a cat to protest suspected mistreatment of animals on campus. The case, which attracted extensive media coverage, was settled on March 25, 2013, when an attorney representing Cromwell entered no-contest pleas to the non-criminal charge and agreed to pay $100 forfeitures and court costs of $263.50. He was banned from an event in New York in December 2015 for heckling an energy company for which he had been nominated. Cromwell and five others were arrested on December 18, 2015, near his home in Warwick, New York, where they were arrested. He and his fellow protesters, the "Wawayanda Six," were found guilty of disorderly conduct and traffic obstruction. They were fined $375, postponed to 16 hours of community service on June 29, 2017. Since refusing to pay the fine, he was sentenced to a week in jail, with a possible date of July 14. However, they were released three days later on July 17. On June 6, 2016, 19 people were arrested in Watkins Glen, New York, including Cromwell and fellow Star Trek actor J. G. Hertzler, as part of a demonstration against underground gas storage in salt caverns near Seneca Lake. After disrupting the gathering by protesting the power station, he was led out of a Democratic Party fundraiser (which New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi attended) on June 6, 2017. After participating in a demonstration with PETA at Seaworld on July 24, Cromwell was arrested again, this time for trespassing.

Jeremy Beckham, 34-year-old animal rights campaigner, was arrested on October 31, 2019. They were charged with disorderly conduct after police said they disrupted a meeting of the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents. The two people were both protesting A&M's use of dogs for medical research as part of a demonstration organized by People for Ethical Treatment of Animals. Both were released after releasing $5,000 bonds.

Cromwell glued his hand on the counter of a Manhattan Starbucks counter to protest the surcharge of plant-based milks.

The documentary Imminent Threat, a Cromwell executive, produced an article in 2015 focusing on the War on Terror's effects on civil rights.

Mondo Hollywoodland, a psychedelic thriller produced by Janek Ambros, who also produced Imminent Threat in 2021, was produced by Cromwell executive Mondo Hollywoodland in 2021.
