Friday Morning Man: John Wesley Shipp!
Today is John Wesley Shipp’s 66th birthday!
He portrays Barry Allen’s father, Henry Allen, Jay Garrick/Flash and Earth-90 Barry Allen/Flash on the current The Flash series on The CW network.
He is still such a handsome guy but the younger John was really something to behold! I went to his Facebook page and snagged some picks from his days as a soap star on Guiding Light, Santa Barbara and As the World Turns (he won two Daytime Emmys) and time as The Flash on CBS and, of course, as Dawson’s hot dad on Dawson’s Creek.
John surfaced on ABC’s One Life to Live in its final years as villain Eddie Ford, played Kathy Griffin’s ex-husband in an episode of Drop Dead Diva and also appeared in several episodes of Teen Wolf.
