    (September 29, 1953- )
    Born in Fort Wayne, Indiana
    Birth name was Donald Drake Hogestyn
    Portrayed John Black on Days of Our Lives (1986-2009)
    Last name pronounced Hoe-ges-tin
    His nickname is 'Hoagie.'
    He sported a mullet well into the 90s.
    Critics said that his acting on 'Days' consisted mainly of raising his eyebrow.
    He said of 'Days' writers constantly revamping John Black's character, 'I literally had a diagram in my dressing room mapping out John's history and family ties. It confused me!'
    He attended the University of South Florida on a baseball scholarship, graduating with a degree in biology and applied science.
    He was drafted by the New York Yankees and played third base for one of their farm teams until he was injured.
    A crazed fan tried to attack him at his family's home; he and his stepson Ben restrained the intruder with duct tape until the police arrived (December 31, 2006).
    He was twice named 'Hottest Male Star' at the Soap Opera Digest Awards (1994-95).
