Bio

John L. Adams is an American actor best known for his role as Bruce Lewis on the sci-fi television series The Dead Zone, from 2002-2007.

After attending Winston-Salem University in North Carolina, Adams moved to Los Angeles, where he began his career as a stand-up comic.

Adams has been seen performing at many of the industry's most infamous comedy clubs, including L.A.'s The Improv, The Laugh Factory, and The Comedy Store, as well as at the Riviera Casino in Las Vegas.

In 2000 he was cast as a series regular on the first season of the television dramedy Just Deal, which marked his screen acting debut.

In 2002, Adams was cast as physical therapist Bruce Lewis on The Dead Zone, best friend and sidekick of psychic Johnny Smith.

The original book by Stephen King did not feature the character of Bruce; he was created specifically for the show and has become a definitive turning point in the difference between the television series and the book.

Adams has had numerous guest-starring and recurring television roles since then, including Girlfriends, Love Junkies, The Parent Hood, Pacific Blue, CSI, Arrested Development and NCIS.

Adams has also appeared on stage in productions of The Wiz (as The Scarecrow) and in Trouble Man as Tony.

In his spare time Adams enjoys singing, dancing, cooking and playing sports.
