The actor was on Days for two years from 2015-2017, leaving when Joey was sent to prison for allegedly murdering Ava (Tamara Braun). James made a brief return in 2020 when Joey was released from prison after Ava was discovered alive.

The two were slated to return to Los Angeles on Monday. However, they never made their flight.
