John has successfully been involved in casting all of Nebraska Director Alexander Payne's films.

John tries to match the role to the person - often picking people off the street who match his criteria. He's selected housewives at the market, students in high schools, security guards - even a couple farmers in Loveland, Iowa.

Working Alexander Payne gives John the leeway he needs to be a good and cutting edge casting director. John has worked on his films including: Citizen Ruth, Election, About Schmidt, and Sideways.

John has also worked in casting on other great films like: The Host, American Zombie, and The Objective.

John recently was the Casting Director on Alexander Payne's award winning film, The Descendants, taking place in Hawaii starring big actors like George Clooney, newcomers like Nick Krause, and other actors that were native in Hawaii.
