Born on Norfolk, Virginia on January, 22th of 1956
John is always described by his co-stars as a nice guy, easy to work with due to his professionalism. Back to his high school days, according to all former classmates that studied with him, John was class president, senior favorite, very intelligent and everybody's buddy. Standing about 6 foot tall, this handsome and talented actor started his career in the soap opera Guiding Light playing the gullible and studly nice guy Kelly Nelson. He stayed in the show from 1980 to the 1984 and landed a role in another soap opera: As the world turns, from which he received a daytime Emmy award as best supporting actor for his role of Doug Cummings. John also worked on stage in plays like "Dancing at Lughnasa" in New York.
In 1981 John recorded the album "Images", now a collector's item. It contains ten tracks sung by John plus the inner sleeve contains song lyrics and photos. If you have more information about it, please send a note! I collected the information as well the picture from ebay.
Another Emmy followed for his guest appearance in Santa Barbara. His big shot came in 1990 when he got the got the leading role of CBS's The Flash. Unfortunately the series ended after only one season, but it was enough to make this one of the cult series of the 90's.
In 1993 John starred in the stage production of the dark comedy "The Killing of Michael Malloy" at the Tiffany Theater in Los Angeles.
John made then a series of movies and guest appearances on TV shows.
