Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, John Reardon is one of three children, and is part of a large extended family of over 300 cousins living in Canada's Maritimes. During his school years, John performed in many plays, but had never considered going into acting professionally until he saw Paul Newman in the movie 'Cool Hand Luke.'
Although motivated to follow in the footsteps of his idol, John choose to finish College where he was an all-star football player and Honors student. Upon graduation, John pursued his ambition of becoming an actor. He landed his first movie role, playing Heath in the Wayans Brothers' outlandish comedy, "White Chicks." John continued in the comedy genre, playing Jeremiah in "Scary Movie 4," along with a star-studded cast that included Leslie Nielson, Bill Pullman, Molly Shannon, and Michael Madsen.
Meanwhile, John began to land major roles, playing the title character in "Merlin's Apprentice," also starring Sam Neill and Miranda Richardson. He then played the leading man in the mini-series, "Son of the Dragon," where on location in China, John demonstrated his athletic skills in his portrayal of D.B, a young thief who trains under a martial arts master played by David Carradine.
John continued his work on feature films as a small-town mechanic in the Weinstein brothers' movie "Make it Happen," with Mary Elizabeth Winstead and then appeared in Disney's "Tron: Legacy" where he worked with Jeff Bridges to help create the computer animated characters of Young Kevin Flynn and Clu.
John was later cast as Blake Laviolette, a hotshot bush pilot, on the TV show Arctic Air as well as appearing on the hit Science Fiction series Continuum.
