Johnny StassiJOHNNY COLA – Played by Johnny Stassi

Born to entertain, John Horace Coletti hit the big time in his early teens.

Topping the charts as front man Johnny Cola for the 70’s rock group the Wild Hares, Johnny has seen and done it all. Until the day he crossed his Faction masters. Then things went sour…

Devastated by the loss of his voice, family and fame, he retreated to the French Quarter where he runs Rita’s Tequila House on world-famous Bourbon Street. Working for his ex-wife Lorita, a Hybrid Faction Mistress, he plays out his days on the bar instead of the mic.

Don’t mess with him or he just might tell you everything he knows…



Johnny is a native of Baton Rouge but spent the last 30 years in the bayou country, Thibodaux, Houma and Raceland before returning to the “Red Stick”. He started in the entertainment business as a musician at the age of eleven. For the last twenty years Johnny has owned and operated BIGFISH Productions, Inc. in Houma Louisiana where he wrote, produced and directed television and video projects for industry and government. He was the creator of Louisiana Late Night that aired 56 episodes on cable TV.

Johnny has studied acting under the tutelage of his acting coach the extraordinary Daniel Dupont. Johnny is currently working on several major film projects, which include; Dwayne Coots New “ SUBROSAN” Series, along with two other projects “Rings of Darkness” & “Forgotten Spies” headed up by Randall Nall and Rory White.
