John also appeared in Sleepy Hollow, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Discovery Channel’s Manhunt: Unabomber, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Case for Christ, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, MacGyver, Being Mary Jane, and Tyler Perry’s Too Close to Home. He will appear in a number of television shows and movies premiering later this year, and most recently appeared in Make-up Artist Magazine, displaying his alien movie make-up as a Hurctarian Ravager.

John was given his first speaking role by Oprah Winfrey in her production of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. He is one of 10 Ravagers from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 personally selected by James Gunn to attend a 2016 Comic-Con surprise celebration in San Diego. The event was filmed and is now airing on CONtv. Further, art featuring John’s likeness as a Ravager was included in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: The Art of the Movie.

John’s involvement in the Birmingham cosplay community ignited his interest in acting, and he can frequently be found around town volunteering at charity events as Batman, The Joker, and Green Arrow. He refers to himself as “Trick Talking Meat” as coined by the late Carrie Fisher in an interview she did with CNN in 1997. In the interview she explained that the cast had shirts made with “Trick Talking Meat” printed on them, as they felt that is how George Lucas treated them on the set of Empire Strikes Back.
