John Richard "Johnny" Nogerelli is a character from the movie Grease 2.
He is the leader the T-Birds, possibly succeeded Danny after the latter graduated. He is the obvious leader: Italian, extremely cocky and self-assured, but seemingly shallow and chauvinistic. He had a habit, either intentional or otherwise, of taking `big words' and mispronouncing them, to comical effect. Despite his flaws, though, he was a natural leader. Slightly short, but powerfully built like a tank to compensate. Sporting all black - jeans, sleeveless muscle shirt, belt, motorcycle boots, leather jacket with the T-Birds logo stitched on the back, and a Pompadour haircut, he was the epitome of cool.
It was revealed that he and Stephanie Zinone used to go steady during the previous school year, but she broke up with him over the summer, feeling outgrown of their relationship and his chauvinistic ways. He doesn't seem to get it, though.
Upon learning that Stephanie was falling for someone else, he became furious and envious, threatening to fight the Cool Rider if he saw him with Steph again. When he saw her with Michael Carrington, he told her to leave the Pink Ladies to save his rep. He also subtly threatened to harm Michael if she refused.
He and the T-Birds chased Lone Rider to a construction site Dead Man's Curve, in which Lone Rider's motorcycle-jumped off, seemingly to his demise. This convinced them that he was dead, leaving Steph inconsolable, and Johnny feeling guilty.
Thanks to winning the Boy's Division of the June Moon Talent Show, he was crowned "King" of the Luau, and Stephanie was crowned "Queen". He tried to console her in her sullen sad mood by reminding her "Come on, we're having a good time! It's a Luau!" And then he immediately dropped his cigarette onto his grass costume, having a hard time getting it back, and maintain his cool dignity.
The Cycle Lords came and crashed the party. To Johnny's consternation, and relief, Lone Rider showed up and saved the day.
When Lone Rider showed himself as Michael, Johnny was shocked but relieved that he was alive, but at first, he seemed to want to take Michael on. However, Steph, Louis, Davey, and Goose immediately went to bat for Michael, since he went from nerd to badass biker. Johnny relented, and welcomed Michael into the gang with the gift of a T-Birds jacket, officially accepting him into the gang, even though they graduated the next day.
Johnny officially let go of Stephanie, and accepted Paulette and admitted he liked something in her.
