How Dirty John Actors Compare to Their Real-life Counterparts

Bookmark(0)

No account yet? Register

Dirty John is a Bravo original series adapted from an extremely popular true-crime podcast (itself inspired by host Christopher Goffard’s series of L.A. Times articles) about one really bad guy (that would be John) who manipulated a spectacularly wealthy woman (self-made successful designer Debra Newell) as part of a long con that led to an incredibly violent end.

Despite the adaptation’s impressive cast (including Connie Britton, Eric Bana, Juno Temple, Jean Smart, Julia Garner, Shea Whigham, Sprague Grayden, and Joelle Carter), it never quite matches the morbid sensationalism of the actual story. And, as disclaimers throughout Dirty John readily concede, events and characterizations are frequently fictionalized for the sake of narrative expediency and — in some cases — to respect the wishes of those involved.
