John Allen Nelson is the reason I decided to watch
"Vanished". I thought it was about time for him to
be noticed by audiences at large. He was a big hit
with the women on the SONY boards when "Sheena" was
in production. He portrayed Matt Cutter. All of
us who watched drooled over him, and not simply
because of his gorgeous looks. He gave Cutter an
edge and a quirky sense of humor that endeared
him to us.
On top of that, John would join our chats on the
SONY boards and answer questions from us. A really
great guy who appreciates his fans. Even after Sheena
got cancelled, he got back on the boards one last time
to thank us for our support and kind words to him.
Before he got the role of Walt Cummings on '24', he suffered a life-threatening aneurysm that had him on his back for over four months. I'm glad to see that he's back
and visible on tv again.
If anyone wants to see what a perfect male specimen
looks like, just rent one of his first movies ; "HUNK".
It's a funny, Faustian-type comedy with an ordinary
guy making a pact with the devil and getting turned
into a wondrously handsome hunk (John Allen Nelson).
The movie was made about 20 years ago.
