James Francis Gunn, Jr. (born August 5, 1970) is an American writer, director, producer, actor, and musician. His siblings include Sean and Matt Gunn.
Gunn started his career as a screenwriter in the late 1990s, and has written the scripts for Tromeo and Juliet (1996), Scooby-Doo (2002), its sequel Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004), and the 2004 version of Dawn of the Dead. He then started working also as a director, starting with Slither in 2006. He subsequently wrote and directed the web series James Gunn's PG Porn and the superhero films Super (2010) and Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).
He married actress and fellow St. Louis native Jenna Fischer on October 7, 2000, in an event officiated by Lloyd Kaufman. The two had originally met in the St. Louis area through James' brother Sean, who had acted in plays alongside Fischer in high school. After seven years of marriage Gunn and Fischer announced their separation in a joint statement on September 5, 2007. Fischer and Gunn divorced less than a year later. The two remain friends, and in 2010 Fischer helped Gunn with casting her The Office co-star Rainn Wilson in Gunn's film Super.
Gunn has since dated Kayo Dot violinist Mia Matsumiya and model Melissa Stetten.
