James Denton plays Johnny in Grace Unplugged. The role isn't far from reality, as Denton is a former worship music pastor.
Denton didn't begin acting until he was 28 years old. Even though he received good reviews, he was not convinced that he could make a living from being an actor. After a few more years, he risked everything and moved to Chicago to become a professional actor where he quickly became one of Chicago's brightest acting stars as a company member of the Griffin Theatre and at the Strawdog Theatre Ensemble. Once he earned a key role in the "Untouchables" TV series, Denton moved to Los Angeles for more opportunities.
James is best known for his longstanding role in "Desperate Housewives." Other ongoing TV shows include "The Pretender," "Philly," and "Threat Matrix." He has made guest appearances on "JAG," "Slider," "Dark Skies," "Two Guys and a Girl," "Ally McBeal," and "The West Wing," and once hosted "The Miss America Pageant." His movies include Primary Colors, Face/Off, and That Old Feeling. James is also a musician and part of the Band From TV, a group of actors who perform concerts to raise money for charity.
