DJ is a major character in the 2018 sci-fi/thriller film, The Meg. He is the Rover pilot during the exploration mission and a scientist on the Mana One team. He is also a good friend of The Wall and Toshi.
He was portrayed by Page Kennedy.
DJ is first seen when Dr. Zhang introduces him to Jack Morris at the station. DJ comments that Morris is his first billionaire making him laugh. During the Mariana Trench exploration mission, DJ is responsible for piloting the Rover. However, he loses control of the craft which is damaged by an unknown creature that then attacks the Origin. Later when Jonas Taylor brings Lori and The Wall to the surface, DJ is very sad to learn that Toshi died while sacrificing.
He is also shocked to learn that the hydrogen layer having opened, the Meg was able to pass and now prowl in the ocean. He follows the group when they go to see the boats destroyed by the giant shark and, frightened, refuses to go to a cage to shoot a tranquilizing arrow at the beast. After the Meg is visibly killed, DJ pranks The Wall by moving the crane, scaring his friend into the water. Although they are calmly joking, another larger shark devours The Wall and grabs the other shark's corpse while overturning the ship. The group then helplessly witness the death of Heller who sacrificed himself to save Jaxx. Annoyed, DJ screams saying he should have stayed at the station and now that the Meg is angry he will kill them all. After mentioning all the people killed by the shark, DJ says they were all his friends before he curled up sadly.
Back at the station, Morris announces that he has warned all nearby authorities of the Meg's presence and that two destroyers will kill him, satisfying DJ. However, it turns out that the billionaire lied and that in trying to kill the Meg on his own he was eventually devoured. When Jonas says to prepare all the equipment to kill the shark, DJ asks worried if they are preparing to evacuate like normal people. Towards the end of the film, a helicopter crash forces Jonas' group to jump into the water and DJ begins to panic. Meiying tells him to calm down and Jonas finishes the Meg. While going on a wedding boat, DJ notices that some girls are smiling at him and he goes to approach them.
