His big break was playing "Russell," Jack's often tormented acting peer on WILL & GRACE and most recently he's been hanging out with the undead on DANTE'S COVE.
To kick-off our new column "HOLLYWOOD LOST & FOUND," Jon channeled his inner Schwarzenegger to recreate the iconic debut of THE TERMINATOR, upon landing at the Griffith Park Observatory.
CHAD DARNELL: Where are you from?
JON FLEMING: Wisconsin.
CD: How long have you lived in LA?
JF: Five years.
CD: Who is Dante and why does he live on a Cove?
JF: I think he may be the founder of the cove and brought over shirtless boys and girls from the mainland to start a resort.
CD: What's the strangest thing you were asked to do on Dante's Cove?
JF: I got asked to wear underwear. I never wear it unless I am working out. We have sponsors for our show so I had to wear a pair for product placement.
CD: When did you decide you had to be an actor?
JF: When I got my S.A.T. scores back.
CD: Name two roles (any roles in history) that you wish you could have played:
JF: "Johnny Cash" in WALK THE LINE and any role in 300
CD: If you could do any other profession, what would it be?
JF: Pro football or basketball player.
CD: If you were forced at gunpoint to rescue any princess from a Disney film, who would it be and why?
JF: Cinderella, because she cooks and cleans.
CD: You've done two horror movies (CAMP DAZE and FRAT HOUSE MASSACRE). What is the secret to fleeing from a psycho killer?
JF: I play the killer in both movies so I do not know how to flee from one, but if you want to flee from me you could throw some cheese at me. I like cheese.
CD: What's your favorite guilty pleasure?
JF: Poker, Guinness and old sly Stallone movies.
CD: You're trapped on DANTE'S COVE. What are five things you must have?
JF: Dumbbells, baby oil, breath mints, sun glasses and a crucifix.
CD: What scares you?
JF: Carnival workers, porta potties and sharks.
CD: What's next for you?
JF: You mean besides my pyramid scheme i got caught up in? FRAT HOUSE MASSACRE should be out in a few months and hopefully another season of DANTE'S COVE. I also work part time as a ninja and a country line dance instructor.
CD: Do you have any single friends and why have you not set me up with them?
JF: Most of my friends are taken and the single ones play dungeons and dragons all day.
CD: What is hot in Hollywood?
JF: Any bar or eatery that you can just walk right in and enjoy yourself instead of waiting in a line outside like you are a refugee waiting for bread and soup.
CD: M&M's, plain or peanut?
