Mitchell soon had a first shot at series TV as well when he joined the cast of CBS' long-running "Dallas" in 1989 near the end of its run, playing the manipulative James Richard Beaumont, the supposed son of the only woman (played by Gayle Hunnicutt) ever to break J.R.

He also played the lead in the sequels to the Jean-Claude Van Damme actionfest "Kickboxer." So far, Mitchell has punched and kicked his way through three sequels playing the brother of Van Damme's character.
