I didn't know he passed away. I checked him out on IMBD and found out from there. I knew his mother was Helen Hayes though.
Helen Hayes and her husband Charles MacArthur adopted James. They had a biological daughter, Mary, who died in 1949 at the age of 19 from polio. James named his first son Charles after his dad and his daughter Mary after his sister.
Negotiations were underway in 2010 for MacArthur to make a cameo appearance in the new CBS primetime remake of Hawaii Five-O at the time of his death.
