In 1988, he made his debut in the world of films. License to Drive was his first film starring Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Richard Masur and Carol Kane. He got the role of a valet in this teen adventure film. The film is about a 16 years old teenager who fails knowledge part of his driving test. The film was described s passable entertainment. The film received only two and half stars out of four from the critics. Eventhough the film was not acclaimed by the critics, it was a success at the box office. It was produced at the budget of $8 million and it made $22 million at the box office.
The next film of Jon Grissom was a teen fantasy called Dream a Little Dream starring Corey Feldman, Jason Robards, Harry Dean Stanton and Piper Laurie. He was assigned the role of a P.E. coach in this film. The film is about mind swap of a married older man with that of a teenager. The film was released simultaneously in 1019 theaters. The film made $2.5 million on opening weekend. However the collection dropped to the half in next week. The reviews were also negative. The music was a plus point of the movie. It was the mix of rock and classic music.
Jon Grissom’s acting career is limited to two movies with insignificant roles. While practicing his acting skills, he served Corey Feldman as a personal assistant during the 80s. According to Corey Feldman, Grissom sexually abused Corey while serving him as a personal assistant. He has given vivid description about the sexual abuse and molestation in his autobiography “Coreyography; A Memoir.” Feldman accuses Jon Grissom of molesting Corey Haim as well. The autobiography was published in 2013.
Corey Feldman is appearing on talk shows revealing details about child abuse which was rampant in Hollywood in 80s. Some Hollywood big shots such as Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein and Jeremy Piven have been implicated in the scandals of se*ual harassment of young artists. Jon Grissom is also getting attention in social media because of Feldman’s accusations. In his autobiography Coreyography, Feldman has used the pseudonym Ron Crison for Jon Grissom.
In the book Feldman describes how he and Corey Haim were molested by a man named Ron Crison. It is described in the book how Ron Crison would give him pills before performing se*ual act. He has accused Grissom of molesting Corey Haim as well. Feldman claims he has reported this to San Diego police department. However, the police denies the claim. As a result, they cannot arrest Jon Grissom. Some people even doubt the intentions of Corey Feldman.
Jon Grissom seems to be an undistinguished person with criminal history. His achievements are not very significant. However he is getting a lot of negative attention because of Corey Fledman’s accusations. It is sad that none of the accusations can be proved. Even for the police department it is not possible to arrest him. Se*ual harassment and molestation of children is a serious crime and sex offenders should be dealt with firmly. I believe in coming years people would be more careful and protective about their children. And law enforcement would be more empowered to bring sex offenders to justice.
