Michael Papajohn first made a name for himself as the starting center fielder for the LSU Tigers baseball team, when they made their inaugural trip to the College World Series in 1986. He returned with his team the following year.
His role as Dennis Quaid’s stunt double in Everybody’s All-American saw his career shift from the baseball diamond to the silver screen, although he returned to the field in Sam Raimi’s For Love of the Game, as Kevin Costner’s baseball nemesis Sam Tuttle. Papajohn did all of Adam Sandler’s hits in The Waterboy. He also drowned in Titanic… many different times, many different ways.
Papajohn is the carjacker who killed Uncle Ben in Spider-Man, winning the hatred of many. But karma hits back, as he has died at the hands of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, and Nicolas Cage, just to name a few. Papajohn has been killed with a frying pan in American Ultra, a table in The Bourne Legacy, and an ear of corn in the hit TV series Preacher. He played Megan Fox’s father in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. He brawled in the bathroom with Cameron Diaz in Charlie’s Angels… and lost. He was beat up in prison by Sylvester Stallone in Escape Plan, but survived the dinosaurs in Jurassic World. After Charlie’s Angels, Terminator: Salvation, and This Means War, Papajohn teamed up with McG once again for the upcoming sci-fi adventure film, Rim of the World.
Papajohn is no stranger to the small screen. Alongside his role in Preacher, you can see his work in the upcoming third season of True Detective, Nashville, and NCIS: New Orleans.
A gifted and passionate orator, Papajohn is frequently invited to public speaking events, giving the commencement address at LSU’s 278th Commencement Ceremony, as well as being the keynote speaker at the 2018 Alumni Professionals of the SEC. He also presents a “Life, Camera, Action!” show, an inside look at working on a film set as a stunt actor. In 2013, Papajohn was inducted into the LSU Hall of Distinction, ensuring his legacy will live on much longer than the lives of the many colorful characters he has portrayed on film and television.
