    A John Doe is an unidentified man- no I.D. and they can't figure out who he is. Also, the man who plays Lincoln Burrows was the star of a short lived tv show called John Doe from probably 5-7 years ago. Not sure which one you're asking about.

    dam people I know the question suck but only one other could figure it out.

    Dominic Purcell, who plays the older brother whose little brother went to jail and to break him out, the plot of "prison Break" used to star in "john doe" which was a show where he woke up and knew almost almost everything, but who he was, It was a great show, but only was on for one year.

    The "John Doe" custom dates back to the reign of England's King Edward III, during the legal debate over something called the Acts of Ejectment. This debate involved a hypothetical landowner, referred to as "John Doe," who leased land to another man, the equally fictitious "Richard Roe," who then took the land as his own and "ejected," or evicted, poor "John Doe."

    They give the name to people who they don't know the identity of. It's used mostly in medical terms for a person who has no identification.
