Jack Baker

Biography: John Anthony Bailey got his start in legitimate acting as a "spectator" in a 1969 episode of "Mission: Impossible." From there he went on to do two memorable guest appearances on "Happy Days" and the next season, landed his first major role, that of C.C. in the children's series "Wonderbug", which aired for two seasons as part of "The Krofft Supershow."

One would assume that this is why, in 1984, he went into the world of hardcore pornography and adopted the stage name "Jack Baker" for his new career. Working mostly for the Dark Brothers, Baker acting talent made him a standout in an industry populated mostly by people with limited (if any) acting ability. Unfortunately, most of Baker's roles tended to be stereotypical jive-talkers or pimps. Around 1986, Baker stopped performing sexually (presumably, due to the AIDS scare) but with his acting
