Rob Mayes is an American actor, musician, and model. He is best known for starring as the title character in the 2012 horror comedy film John Dies at the End. He portrayed Tommy Nutter in the short-lived comedy-drama television series Jane by Design.
After graduating from University School in 2003, Mayes attended Dulwich College in London and toured Europe with a singing group. After the September 11 attacks, he decided to pursue a military career. He attended the United States Naval Academy—he was also accepted into the United States Military Academy—and planned to become a Navy SEAL. He left approximately 18 months later, citing desensitization and feeling like he was "becoming something [he] didn't want to be." As he was unable to listen to music at the Academy, he began writing songs. He released a seven-track pop album called Glimpses of Truth.
Two weeks after moving to New York City in 2007, Mayes was hired for a one-episode role in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. In 2008, he played the lead role in the MTV musical television film The American Mall. The film follows his character, Joey, who falls in love with a girl working in a mall's music shop.
In 2012, he auditioned for the role of John in John Dies at the End without reading the script, and was cast. The film premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. In the same year, he had a recurring role as Tommy Nutter in Jane by Design and guest starring roles in NCIS, The Glades, and 90210.
After a recurring role on The Client List, he portrayed Matthew Blackwood in the 2013 drama film Burning Blue. The film, based on the 1992 play of the same name, follows two male Navy fighter pilots who fall in love. He will portray Troy Quinn in Legends, which will premiere on August 20, 2014.
