Johnathon Schaech (/ʃɛk/ SHEK; born September 10, 1969[1]) is an American actor and screenwriter. He has been working as an actor since the early 1990s. In 1993, Schaech played the lead role in Franco Zeffirelli's period drama Sparrow (Italian: Storia di una capinera).[2][3] Schaech then played drifter Xavier Red in the Gregg Araki film The Doom Generation.[3]

In 1995, Schaech's character Leon romanced Winona Ryder's character Finn in How to Make an American Quilt[3] which received a nomination for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.[4] In 1996, Schaech played the ambitious but self-absorbed lead singer of The Wonders in Tom Hanks' That Thing You Do![5] Schaech next starred opposite Jessica Lange and Gwyneth Paltrow in the 1998 thriller Hush, which "promptly bombed".[6][7][8]
