Biography

Noted actor and handyman John Littlefield earned his M.F.A. in theater from Temple University before returning to his alma mater to teach. Later realizing that without proper experience he had little to offer his students, the ambitious actor soon set out to test his worth in New York City. Frequent roles in off-Broadway plays, regional theater, and television helped Littlefield to build an impressive resumé over the next few years, with bit parts in such features as The Hulk, Slipstream, Fracture, and Beowulf serving to indicate a successful career in film as well. During his down time, Littlefield would often hone the carpentry skills handed down to him by his father -- a practice that eventually led to hosting duties on the Discovery Channel series Dude Room and a collaboration with Habitat for Humanity for CMT's Home Blitz. As ambitious as these programs were, though, nothing could have prepared Littlefield for his hard work as a handyman and carpenter on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and he fast became an audience favorite on the hit series. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
