James Byron Dean is an American actor born in 1931. He ranks among the most iconic film stars to have ever lived, appearing in Popcorn Classics such as Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden, and Decker vs. Dracula.

Thought to have died in a tragic car accident during 1955, he returned to the spotlight in the 2015 On Cinema Oscar Special. It was revealed that he had faked his own death by laying very still after a car crash. His identity was questioned by some, including Tim Heidecker, but his identity was confirmed by a DNA test conducted by Dr. San. He has since made a grand cinematic return, playing Dracula in both season 3 and 4 of the Decker franchise.
