John Finn (born September 30, 1952) is an American actor known as one of the leads of the television programs Cold Case and EZ Streets. Finn has also had supporting roles in the films The Hunted (2003), Catch Me If You Can (2002), True Crime (1999), Turbulence (1997), Blown Away (1994), The Pelican Brief (1993), and Glory (1989).
TV series that Finn has had recurring roles on include Dawson`s Creek, The Practice, The X-Files, Strange World, NYPD Blue (he also appeared two other times on Blue as different characters), Chicago Hope, and eight episodes of Brooklyn South.
He graduated from Eldred Central School in Eldred, NY in the year 1970. One of the jobs he had while he was starting into acting was teaching. Mr. Finn taught 6th grade at a private catholic school in a suburb of Los Angeles in the early 80s.
In 2005, Finn along with Co-stars Kathryn Morris & Jeremy Ratchford appeared in a celebrated TV promo for Cold Case on the Irish language television station TG4, in which an actor from the Irish Drama Ros na Rún is questioned in the Philadelphia PD`s interview room. Despite relentless questioning over a missing (presumed dead) woman, the suspect refuses to co-operate, answering in Gaelic that he cannot understand English. Finn promptly sits beside him and asks in fluent Irish "Ca bhfuil an bean seo? An mharaigh tú í? (Where`s the woman? Did you murder her?) with a pitch perfect accent. Morris then asks (again , in Irish) "Are you understanding now?. leaving Ratchford, viewing through two-way glass, to exclaim "I did NOT see that coming..." . Finn, having Irish parents, was familiar with the language & comfortable in his delivery, and assisted the natually less fluent, but equally convincing Kathryn Morris in learning her lines phonetically.
