John Howard (actor)

John Howard (born October 22, 1952) is an Australian stage and screen actor. He is best known for his appearances in the film The Club and the television series SeaChange[?] and Always Greener[?].

Early in his career, he decided (partly in response to a recognised tendency for successful Australian actors to end up in England or the US) that he would only appear in Australian productions.

After a different John Howard was elected Prime Minister of Australia in 1996, jokes about the coincidence entered Australian comedy - notably in an episode of the satirical television series The Games[?] in which the organisers of the Sydney Olympics hired the actor (played by himself) to stand in for the Prime Minister, figuring that the foreign dignitaries wouldn't know the difference.

John Howard (April 14, 1913 - February 19, 1995) was an American actor, best known for his role in Lost Horizon.

Born John Cox in Cleveland, Ohio.

Served in World War II, earning the Navy Cross and the Croix de Guerre[?].

Died of heart failure in Santa Rosa[?], California.
