Birmingham native Michael Papajohn in 4 summer movies

One of the last times he was spotted at a theater near you, Birmingham native Michael Papajohn was playing a carjacker in director Sam Raimi’s 2007 summer blockbuster “Spider-Man 3.”

This summer, the 44-year-old Papajohn seemingly will be everywhere, with supporting roles in four movies, beginning this week with the sci-fi thriller “Terminator Salvation,” the fourth installment in the long-running “Terminator” saga.

Papajohn, who graduated from Vestavia Hills High School and went on to play collegiate baseball at LSU, has been making movies since he appeared as Dennis Quaid’s stunt double in “Everybody’s All-American” in 1988.

After moving to Los Angeles that same year, Papajohn has carved out quite a career as a character actor — appearing in the baseball movies “Little Big League” and “For Love of the Game,” the action-thrillers “Eraser” and “Predator 2,” the comic-book adventure “Hulk,” the remake of “The Longest Yard” and the Oscar-nominated drama “House of Sand and Fog,” among many others.
