Michael Papajohn

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.
