In September 2020, he teamed up with professional dancer Britt Stewart for season 29 of Dancing With the Stars. Prior to that, Johnny has appeared on The Masked Singer, Wedding Cake Championship, Skating With the Stars and more. As for scripted television, Johnny was cast in Netflix’s Spinning Out in January 2020.
“I had a brief moment in Zoolander 2 that ended up on the cut list, and I’ve done some small things here and there, but as far as being a recurring character in a TV series, this was the first time for me,” he told Variety at the time. “And I felt a lot of pressure going into this process, even though it’s about figure skating. Even though it’s not so much of a stretch for me to play a gay ice skater, I still was terrified.”
Unfortunately, the series was canceled after 10 episodes. Thankfully, that’s hardly the last we’ll be seeing of Johnny on TV! New episodes of Dancing With the Stars air Mondays on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET.
