James is Not as Tall as His Stunt Double
When casting for stunt doubles of major actors, movie producers always try stunt performers who are as close in resemblance to the actors as possible. Oftentimes, however, there are some slight differences between the actor and the stunt double.

However, this difference in their heights can hardly be noticed when the two men stand beside each other. Thus, this makes Douglas the ideal stunt double for James.
