Early in his career he got a chance to go to Italy for a film, and ended up staying there for over 7 years! He changed his stage name to Hunt Powers and starred in 21 of the legendary Spaghetti Westerns. He and friend Clint Eastwood often stayed in the same hotel and would pass each other in the lobby, smile, wave goodbye and then go shoot on their respective “mountains” for the day. We have a few of his 21 Spaghetti Westerns here below, as well as films like Spiderman, Falling Down with Michael Douglas and Gods and Monster, with Sir Ian McKellan.
His love for the theatre has brought him to many stages in his career, and we have a few examples of that here as well. And there will also be shots if him from his television career. On top of that, he has also had a long love affair with song. He has performed singing cabarets and one mand show all over the World. We will have examples of that here as well very soon.

His latest production, It Goes Like This, is Jack’s most personal work to date and was 31 years in the making. It had it’s World Premiere April 5, 2013 at the Lee Strasberg Creative Center in Hollywood and had a great run with strong approval and support from it”s audiences.

===Trade Mark (1)=== Plays dashing, debonair, suave and refined gentlemen. They are often wealthy, well-to-do doctors or CEOs.
===Trivia (1)=== Great-great-grandnephew of President Millard Fillmore.
===Personal Quotes (2)=== 1. [Talking about filming Spider-Man (2002) with Sam Raimi] Willem Dafoe and 'Tobey Maguire were great to work with, and so was Sam Raimi. What a gentleman - always there for you, and so helpful. I wanted to be in Spider-Man 2 (2004) even though I was killed in the first one. I called Sam and said, "I'll dye my hair, I'll wear a wig--I'll even wear a dress. I would love to work with you again." He was so kind, but he said he couldn't bring back my character, Mr. Balkan, because he had died on screen. So that was that, but it was great to work with him. 2. [Explaining the longevity of his career] Passion and ambition. I remember when I was 10 years old, my mother took me to see Wuthering Heights (1939), and I saw Laurence Olivier on the screen. And I said to myself, "I will never do anything else in my life but that. I want to be an actor." That film changed my life as well.
