'''John Marwood Cleese''' (October 27, 1939-) is a British actor. He is most famous for his work in ''Creator/MontyPython'', where he often played authority figures and yelled a lot. His leaving the show before the fourth season is widely seen to be the moment when it JumpedTheShark. Beyond that, he, along with his then-wife Connie Booth, created and starred in ''Series/FawltyTowers'', co-wrote and starred in ''Film/AFishCalledWanda'', helped write a ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' Film/{{Elseworld}}, [[HeyItsThatGuy made cameo appearances all over the place]], and gave a [[PrecisionFStrike rather famous]] eulogy to friend and fellow Pythonite Creator/GrahamChapman.

* ProductionPosse: He enjoys working with Michael Palin and often goes out of his way to try and include Palin in his projects (which is why Monty Python was formed). He also enjoyed working with the cast of ''Film/AFishCalledWanda'' so much that he reunited them to work together on ''Film/FierceCreatures''.

Long established career aside, millenials likely know of him simply for portraying Nearly Headless Nick in the [[Harry Potter]] films.

* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Cleese has a reputation for being very intent on earning money. Creator/EricIdle complained a lot about this, especially because Cleese only wanted to do the post-Python projects (like the movies) if they brought in a lot of cash. Many of the films and TV sitcom appearances Cleese has done in the later years of his life have been criticized as this too. Ironically, Idle himself has gone the same route the last twenty years.

* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Cleese has a reputation for being very intent on earning money. (His divorce settlement was very expensive and pretty much forced him to do a lot more work than most actors of his age and recognition.)
