Ever wanted to be in an action movie? Local man and former Peralta Colleges Student James Weston II has felt the heat of explosions and shot machine guns with major stars, putting his double experience of acting and military operations to successful use. He’s already been in 12 films in the extra and stunt department, and he attributes his rising star to perseverance and his great college experiences at Laney College and College of Alameda, where he graduated.
