John Meier

John C. Meier, AKA J-Bad, started his stunt career in 1975. With a background in surfing, racing and ariels skiing, tumbling, trampoline and motorcycles, John has garnered over 200 film and television credits as stuntman, actor, stunt coordinator and 2nd unit director. He has stunt doubled the biggest actors in Hollywood including Kurt Russell, Mel Gibson, William Shatner, Russell Crowe and Tommy Lee Jones.

In 1982, with Buddy Joe Hooker as his sponsor, John became a Member of Stunts Unlimited. Founding Members Ronnie Rondell, Buddy Joe Hooker, Mickey Gilbert and David Ellis groomed him into an all around stuntman. He has kept this tradition by grooming younger Members namely his son, Dustin Meier, Stunts Unlimited Member since 2001.

John has always been a key player in keeping a bond in our stunt community and industry family. In 1985 he founded the Stunts Unlimited Ski Challenge and, with Member Scott Waugh, the Winter Extreme. In ’08, ’09, ’10, and ’11 John served as Vice President of Stunts Unlimited and in our tradition always looks forward to “a new dawn” with Stunts Unlimited.
