Dewitt's Maternal Grandfather's names was James J. Braddock. It was changed from James W(alter) Braddock, for professional reasons, it mimicked the name of earlier heavy weight champions James J. Corbett and James J. Jeffries (or at least that is the tale that is most often told about the name change). Her Maternal Grandmother's name was Mae not May. In interviews Ron Howard has said Dewitt got the audition because of the bloodline but she got the job because she could act. The only James T. I know of is James T(iberius) AKA Captain Kirk.
