In 1980, he started to pursue an acting career after joining the daytime soap opera “Guiding Light”, playing the role of Dr. Kelly Nelson for four years, and would afterwards join “As the World Turns” in 1985 playing Douglas Cummings, which performance would earn him his first Daytime Emmy Award. More opportunities started opening up for John and his net worth started to increase as well, as he was also part of “Santa Barbara”, “One Life to Live” and “All My Children’.

His next major project would be a recurring role in the series “Sisters” four years later, but he was also working on stage, appearing in a production of “The Killing of Michael Malloy”. In 1998, he was cast as the father of the lead character Dawson in the series “Dawson’s Creek”, being a part of the show for four seasons, and going on to take more television and film projects, building his net worth. In 2010, he returned to daytime soap operas, in the villainous role in “One Life to Live” playing Eddie Ford, before making a guest appearance in the series “Drop Dead Diva” the following year. He was also part of three episodes of “Teen Wolf”, and then starred in the independent film “Hell and Mr. Fudge”, all of which added to is net worth.
