John Anthony Bailey, also known as Jack Baker, (June 4, 1947November 13, 1994), was an American actor, writer and pornographic film star.

Bailey is perhaps best known for the role of C.C. McNamara on the Sid and Marty Krofft children's television program "Wonderbug" (1976). He also appeared on a few "Happy Days" (1974) episodes as "Sticks, the drummer", "M*A*S*H" (1972), "Good Times" (1974) and in the feature film, "The Kentucky Fried Movie" (1977). He later had an extensive career in pornography under the stage name Jack Baker.

Born in Ohio, Bailey lived in San Francisco, California during the early 1970s where he attended Merritt College in Oakland and performed in numerous stage and film productions. His performances included Richard Wesley's "The Black Terror", for John Cochran's Black Repertory West, J. E. Franklin's "Black Girl" with [http://www.adilahbarnes.com/ Adilah Barnes] , work with the improvisational theatre group, The Pitschel Players, and appearances with other San Francisco Bay Area theater companies. Bailey also appeared in the Sun Ra film "Space Is the Place" (made in 1972 and released in 1974).

During the 1980s, Bailey began a career in pornographic films under the pseudonym Jack Baker. In 1984, he appeared in "Let Me Tell Ya 'Bout White Chicks", [ [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0159532/ IMDB listing for "Let Me Tell Ya 'Bout White Chicks"] ] produced and directed by Gregory Dark. His other collaborations with Dark include "New Wave Hookers" (1985), ' and ' (both 1986). Although his pornographic career initially called on him to participate in the explicit sex scenes, somewhere around the time of the "Miss Jones" movies, he had ceased performing hardcore sex on-screen and became known as a "non-sex" actor in the business. His adult roles (particularly for the Dark Brothers) often were comedic in nature, and poked fun at racial stereotypes (though some would say these roles perpetuated said stereotypes).

According to the Internet Adult Film Database, Baker appeared in more than 140 films and produced one movie.

Bailey died of bladder cancer in 1994, at the age of 47, in Los Angeles, California. Bailey was creamated and buried in The Los Angeles County Cemetery. He is survived by his Mother Ruth, Daughter Alida and brother Tom.
