Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson and son CJ With John Wesley Shipp - Greater Austin Comic Con
About John Wesley Shipp-
John Wesley Shipp has portrayed Henry Allen, the father to Grant Gustin's Scarlet Speedster on the CW's hit series The Flash. He also plays Jay Garrick, "The Golden Age hero. Shipp starred as The Flash when CBS brought the series to television in 1990's; in fact, he has played four roles in the "Flash" multiverse: Barry Allen, Professor Zoom, Henry Allen, and Jay Garrick.
A constant presence on television for nearly four decades, Shipp took on another iconic role after The Flash that of Mitch Leery, James Van der Beek's father, on the WB's coming of age series Dawson's Creek. He continued with a memorable turn as boxer Lucky Williams, love interest to Julianne Phillip's Frankie, on Season 5 of NBC's hit drama Sisters, and terrified audiences with his haunting arc as Isaac's abusive father and Beacon Hills gravedigger, Mr. Lahey, opposite Daniel Sharman on MTV's drama Teen Wolf.
Thank you Greater Austin Comic Con, for the fun memories. My son and I loved every minute of it!
