Johnny Messner

There seems to be quite a number of Johnny Messners it seems. At least there is more than one of them and we are here to talk about Johnny Messner the actor. He is the actor who is most known for appearing in the film “Hostage” from 2005. He wasn’t the main actor in the film, he wasn’t even a supporting cast. He was just a small back player there and that is the same movie he is probably most known for. Perhaps this is all the introduction you need to know about the actor.

Johnny Messner – age and early life

Johnny Messner was born in Syracuse, New York. He was born in April 1970 to a military officer among two siblings (brother and sister). Due to the nature of their father’s job, Johnny’s childhood wasn’t in a particular place. It wasn’t even in the United States of America. He grew up in Germany and England where his father was posted to by the US Air Force for over thirteen years.

Johnny Messner – career

Messner began acting in 1998. His debut was on a CBS soap opera “Guiding Light” in which he played the role of Rob Layne in 21 episodes. You can say his was an entry into Hollywood with a blast and you would be right. This is an industry where the regular beginner begins with one none-speaking role in an episode or in some obscure indie short film. It seems like Messner was heading to a career that would be measured in prominent strides. This wasn’t to be as Messner never played any role for as many episodes again.

In 2005, Messner was in “Killer Instincts” as the player of the lead role character of Detective Jack Hale of the San Francisco Police Department on Fox. He was part of the show in every single episode of the entire thirteen. The show was so badly received that Fox did not air the last four episodes in the United States. This could be said to be Messner’s biggest role but it flopped and may have cost Messner acting credit points. If the show had been a hit, we might not be writing about Messner’s profile as a whole.
