The John Haymes Newton Biography

With his muscular physique and dark good looks, John Haymes Newton seemed perfectly cast in the dual role of the teenage Clark Kent and his alter ego "Superboy" in the 1988 syndicated series. But after one season, he was replaced by another actor and instead began to carve out a career on stage and screen. The native North Carolinian headed to Manhattan at age 19 to study acting and soon found himself headlining a TV series. After leaving "Superboy", John Haymes Newton garnered praise for his leading role in a 1990 production of "Out Town" at the Pittsburgh Public Theatre. John Haymes Newton's film career did not begin particularly auspiciously, playing a romantic rival to rapper Vanilla Ice, both vying for the affections of Kristin Minter, in "Cool as Ice" (1991) and graduated to leading roles with "Desert Kickboxer/Desert Hawk" (1992), playing a half-breed cop fighting drug dealers in Arizona. The role required the actor do little more than pose and look good while executing low-level martial arts stunts. "Alive" (1993) gave John Haymes Newton more to do as one of the survivors of a plane crash in the Andes.

Returning to the small screen, John Haymes Newton cut a handsome figure as the driver for Eliot Ness in the syndicated series remake of "The Untouchables" (1993-94). He seemed to find his niche when cast as a mysterious stranger who comes to the aid of Cassidy Rae in the Fox primetime soap "Models, Inc." (1994-95). Building on that performance, John Haymes Newton joined the cast of another of the network's serials, "Melrose Place", in 1998, portraying Ryan McBride, an executive who also happened to be the younger brother of restaurateur Kyle McBride (played by Rob Estes).
