John Terry (1944)

Type :  


John Terry is an American film, television, and stage actor.


 early life
Terry was born in Florida, where he attended Vero Beach High School. He was also educated at the prestigious Loomis Chaffee prep school in Windsor, Connecticut, and began a career building original custom log homes in North Carolina. He played roles in local theater before moving to Alaska where he founded a river rafting company. But his interest in acting did not diminish and at 30 he moved to New York City and became a full time actor.

Terry's debut role was as the title character in the 1980 fantasy film Hawk the Slayer. His career then took a major upswing as he was assigned the roles of Lieutenant Lockhart in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket and Felix Leiter in the James Bond film The Living Daylights. Nothing as prominent followed immediately, though he received good notices for his role as a traumatized Vietnam veteran in Norman Jewison's In Country. Terry subsequently played the lead in a well-regarded but short-lived TV series Against the Grain (as Ben Affleck's father), as a man who starts a new life as a small-town high-school football coach following a critical illness. He also starred as Slim in the 1992 film adaptation of Of Mice and Men.

Recently he has found new success on television. He appeared in the first episodes of ER playing Dr. Div Cvetic, the love interest of Dr. Lewis, who disappeared after a nervous breakdown. He later played a recurring role in season two of Fox's real-time thriller 24, as Bob Warner, the father of both the love interest of hero Jack Bauer and of another daughter whose fiancé is suspected of being a terrorist.

After a brief stint on NBC's Las Vegas, he was cast as Christian Shephard, Jack Shephard and another survivor of Flight 815's father on ABC's Lost. Terry reprised his role as Shephard on several occasions in flashbacks before appearing frequently in real time on the island as an incarnation of "the man in black".
He also had a guest role in a 2006 episode of Law & Order, as well as the part of older Jacob Wheeler in Steven Spielberg's Into the West mini series, which was nominated for 16 Emmy Awards in 2006.

Recently, Terry appeared in David Fincher's Zodiac and joined the cast of the un-aired pilot Secrets of a Small Town. He just finished filming Matthew McConaughey's Surfer, Dude.

John also played one of the leading roles in the film Nine Dead.

He guest starred on Brothers & Sisters as Dr. Karl West, the love interest of Nora Walker.

Terry recently appeared as the father of Abby in New TV Series Charlie's Angels
