James Carville (born July 28, 1929) was born at 906 Shaw Street, Utica, Oneida, New York. He was the son of Thomas Carville (b. 1905) and Nora Carville (b. 1904). He had 5 brothers and 3 sisters.

In 1985, James Carville and his partner Sanford Meisner co-founded The Meisner/Carville School of Acting on the Island of Bequia in the West Indies. They later extended the school to North Hollywood, California, with Martin Barter. Meisner, Carville and Barter opened The Sanford Meisner Center for the Arts in March 1995, and later the school and theater were combined to form the Sanford Meisner Center. This was the first and last location that Sanford Meisner allowed his name to be graced with.
