A character in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy played by actor Jack Davenport. His full name is James Norrington.

In Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, he was a commodore in Port Royal. He was 'the scourge of piracy' according to Jack Davenport, but he was especially out to get Jack Sparrow. He was in love with Elizabeth Swann and proposed to her, but she left him for Will Turner.

In Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Norrington becomes a pirate after being fired from the Royal Navy for losing his ship and crew while trying to sail through a hurricane. He joins Jack Sparrow's crew and accompanies them until the end of the movie when he steals the Letters of Marque and the heart of Davy Jones, which he gives to Lord Beckett in order to regain his life in the Royal Navy.

In Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Norrington his re-hired and promoted to admiral for his services to Lord Beckett. When Elizabeth Swann and her crew are captured and kept aboard the Flying Dutchman, Norrington sets them free. As Elizabeth escapes, she asks Norrington to come with her. He sees Bootstrap Bill Turner coming and knows that whatever decision he make he will be in trouble. He tells Elizabeth, "Our destinies have been intertwined, Elizabeth, but never joined." and kisses her, then tells her to go. Elizabeth starts to leave, and then Bootstrap alerts the crew. Elizabeth sees what is happening and starts to come back, but to keep her from the crew of the Flying Dutchman, Norrington shoots the line Elizabeth is escaping on. He turns around again, only to be stabbed by Bootstrap Bill. He dies as Elizabeth escapes to the Empress.

Although not as well-liked as Jack Sparrow, Norrington has many fans. Some fans pair him with Elizabeth or Jack.
"You're the worst pirate I've ever heard of."
