The Official Site of James Westmoreland
September 19, 2016
It is with a very heavy heart that I must announce the death of my friend, James Westmoreland. He passed away September 14, 2016.
Once there is any news on services, I will post again. In the meantime, please respect the privacy of the people closest to Jim in this difficult time.
I have been told that if you have any stories or remembrances that you would like to share, please send them to Memories@JimWestmoreland.com and they will be posted in a future memorial page on this site.
Westmoreland appeared in such movies as Joy Ride (1958), No My Darling Daughter (1961), The Undertaker and His Pals (1966), Stacey (1973), and Don’t Answer the Phone! (1980). He had recurring roles on TV's The Monroes (1966-67), General Hospital (1972), and The Young and the Restless(1982). In 1970, he was briefly married to actress Kim Darby.
In his early career he was represented by agent Henry Willson, who made Rock Hudson a star, and who gave him the marquee name of "Rad Fulton". Westmoreland returned to using his original birth name after the two severed their business relationship.
