I have always admired James Darren and is one of my favorite singers and actors. If his son forgave him for giving up his rights as a parent, shouldn't he now make amends? Jim Moret is still his son and successful at that! Life is too short to keep on being stubborn. Make up and embrace your grandchildren and the joy they can bring to you James Darren!

James did what he thought was right , are you perfect !

James Darren`s son is Jim Morray,aCNN reporter. He was just on Dr Phil and said that Darren permitted him to be adopted by his stepfather,which included the name change

MegJul 9, 2010

His son, Jim Moret, does not have his father`s last name because when his parents divorced his stepfather adopted him and James Darren agreed to it - nice guy

LindaJul 9, 2010

James Darren`s son was on Dr. Phil today. Jim Maret. I`m trying to find out the story. James Darren gave up his rights to his son. His wife remarried...and her husband`s name in on his birth certificate. If you find out anything...let me know.

Does anyone know why James Darren`s son does not bear his father`s original name of Ercolani? It has been bothering me for a long time but neither their biograpies mention anything aoubout it. Thank you for any information about this,.

I loved the Gidget movies and James Darren was my American Idol. He is the most handsome man I have ever seen.
