Acteur né le 04 mars 1941 (décédé à 51 ans)
John Hancock was an American film and television actor.
Born in Hazen, Arkansas, Hancock is possibly best remembered for his role as "Scotty" in the ABC miniseries Roots: The Next Generations. His large size and distinctive bass voice allowed him to establish a niche playing authority figures, and he was often cast as a minister, judge, or high-ranking military officer.
Hancock also made recurring appearances in several television shows during his career, including Knots Landing, Family Ties, Diff'rent Strokes, Cop Rock, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Amen, Midnight Caller, Pacific Station, and L.A. Law. He was working with Susan Dey on the CBS sitcom Love & War as the bartender "Ike Johnson" in 1992, when he died of a heart attack at his home in Los Angeles.
