It seems to be a long Hollywood tradition to name the hero in a film…JOHN/JACK, especially action films.
I’ve started a list and totaled it up. See if you can add to the list and adjust the total. My TV list is short because I just haven’t watched too much.

TV SHOWS
-Jack Sheppard , LOST. Abrams even named a 2nd lead…JOHN LOCKE.
-Jack Tripper, THREES COMPANY.
Total TV = 2

FILMS
-John McClaine, DIE HARD series
-Jack Ryan, CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER & other films with same character
-Jack Burton, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA
-Jack Grimaldi , ROMEO IS BLEEDING
-Jack T. Colton , ROMANCING THE STONE series
-John Shaft , SHAFT
-Jack Traven, SPEED series
-John Rambo, RAMBO series
-John Connor, TERMINATOR series

-Jonathon E., ROLLERBALL
-Jonathon Harker, DRACULA
-Harold Angel alias Johnny Favorite, ANGEL HEART
-John “Johnny Handsome” Sedley , JOHNNY HANDSOME
-John Spartan, DEMOLITION MAN
-John Driscoll, KING KONG. Yeah Kong is the lead but Driscoll is the “hero” because he gets the girl in the end.
-John Miller, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN
-John Dunbar, DANCES WITH WOLVES
-Jack Torrance ,THE SHINING
-Jack Slater, LAST ACTION HERO
-John T. Chance, RIO BRAVO
-John M. Stryker, SANDS OF IWO JIMA

-John Vukovich, TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A., he’s the hero cause William Peterson’s character dies before the end of the film.

Total FILMS so far= 24

I once made a mix tape of every song I could find that had the word Johnny in it. It was quite an extensive list. Wish I still had it.
