After accompanying a friend to a drama class at the city college he was attending, John was urged to pursue a career in Hollywood, and he did. Corbett scored over 50 high profile Commercials and a guest star appearance on The Wonder Years which put him in good stead when the creators of a revolutionary hit show "Northern Exposure" showed interest in Corbett for the Role of Chris "Chris in the Morning" Stevens. After landing the role and having 6 successful seasons Northern Exposure ended and John became the spokesmen for Ford TV ads.
