Rick James was a friend of Carl Hickey's and is the father of Kenny James. He first appeared in the pilot along with his wife when Randy and Earl were attempting to get the details of Kenny.
Before Season 1Edit
Rick was at the Hickey household in 1977, when Earl was seven. Earl entered the dining room where Carl and Kay Hickey were eating with Rick and his wife. Rick approached Earl, attempting to entertain him, but Earl punched him in the groin ("Cost Dad the Election").
- It is unknown if Rick is on Earl's List, however it is unlikely as it was many years before Earl could make conscious decisions and he probably does not even remembing doing such a thing.
