  • Stegath James Dorr (born 3 June 1973) is an American screenwriter, film actor and producer, credited under the screen name James Wagnor. He is noted for forming the commercial film industry in Oman beginning in 2006 with his association with Kamel Krifa and introducing the concept of the "global ensemble cast" which integrates a mixed international cast of actors who are each stars within their own countries to leverage the appeal of a film in different markets. According to the Oman Daily Observer, the country's largest English-language newspaper, Dorr's work in Oman has been instrumental in "sparking international interest in the Sultanate's potential as an exotic locale for film shoots." While Oman has long appealed to filmmakers for its extraordinary geography, obtaining permission to film in the country has been very difficult in the past and has previously only been granted to documentary filmmakers. Dorr is credited for writing, producing, and starring in Pirate's Blood, "the first English-language feature film to be shot in Oman". Dorr is also noted for casting Canadian adult video actress Sunny Leone in Pirate's Blood, her first mainstream Bollywood film, along with longtime Filipina movie star Isabel Granada and Bollywood actor Nishant Sagar.Dorr is also the cousin of Laurette Spang-McCook, who played Cassiopeia in the original Battlestar Galactica. Dorr was schoolmates with Swedish actress MyAnna Buring at the American British Academy. (en)
