James Arrington is an American stage actor, director, playwright and scholar. His plays are about the people or the culture of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).

Arrington studied at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco and has a master's degree from Brigham Young University. He was twice the Department Chair for the Department of Theatrical Arts for Stage and Screen at Utah Valley University. Arrington is the son of LDS historian Leonard J. Arrington.

Arrington's plays include one man shows on LDS Church leaders Brigham Young, J. Golden Kimball and Wilford Woodruff. Here's Brother Brigham, in which Arrington wrote and performs, is a two-hour, two-act play in which Brigham Young reads letters, reminisces about his past and has conversations with other people. By 2001, Arrington had performed the play almost 700 times.

He has written and produced a large number of plays around the fictional Farley family. One to four actors play up to 20 different members of the Farley family. The play is also performed by other actors including a U.S. Army performance company in Iraq and Afghanistan. The play has spawned a book entitled, Aunt Pearl's Family Reunion Book: Personal Pointers on "How to 'Farley-Up Your Family Reunion" Reunion Book.

Arrington has also lent his voice talents to animated film productions, including The Swan Princess series as the Chamberlaine. He also was one of the lead voice talents in the animated film "Samuel the Boy Prophet" and several other Bible themed animated features produced by Richard Rich.
