May 12
James Naughton:  40+ Years in the Biz
James Naughton got his first big acting break about a year after graduating from Yale Drama School in Long Day’s Journey into Night in New York—and he hasn’t stopped acting, as well as being active in many philanthropic organizations, since then. He has been involved in Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for 25 years, Wildlife in Crisis and many others. He’s always ready to emcee or perform for fundraising events. He has commented, “When you give a little bit of your time, you wind up getting back a lot more than you give. Giving adds meaning to life.” His acting genes have been passed along to his children, Keira and Greg, and daughter-in-law Kelli O’Hara..
