James was asked what kind of animal he thinks J.R. would be, and he had quite the interesting answer.

“J.R. is like a dolphin, man,” he said, according to Slam. “You know why? I watch a lot of these … what is it called, Open Water? Or National Geographic, and dolphins like, they’re really killers. Sharks are afraid of them. But, they gotta have a group around them to become the best of their ability. … And (they’re) incredibly smart.”

Not what you were expecting, right? Still, a very interesting comparison.
