James Carville - Rotten Tomatoes

James Carville

Grew up in Carville, LA, a town on the Mississippi River named for his grandfather, who was its postmaster. As a teen, he worked on his first political campaign for a car dealer running for the Louisiana state legislature. Served in the United States Marine Corps from 1966 to 1968. Taught eighth-grade science in rural Louisiana. Has appeared as himself on Mad About You, Spin City, The Family Guy and Arli$$. Played a prosecutor in Milos Forman's 1996 film The People vs. Larry Flynt. Had a cameo in the 2005 comedy Wedding Crashers. Both he and his wife, GOP stalwart Mary Matalin, hosted CNN's raucous Crossfire, but not at the same time. A prolific author, his books include such New York Times best sellers as We're Right, They're Wrong (1996), and a children's book, Lu and the Swamp Ghost (2004). In 2009, joined the faculty of Tulane University to teach political science.
