Before BABYLON: Top 5 Paterson Joseph Movies and TV Shows

Before BABYLON: Top 5 Paterson Joseph Movies and TV Shows

This BABYLON star’s appearances run the gamut from his award-winning stage work with the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company, to TV appearances in UK scifi institution Doctor Who and cult sketch comedy series That Mitchell and Webb Look. Seemingly never playing the same type twice, this chameleon-like performer modulates each character’s confidence, gravitas, integrity and inner turmoil to create a perfectly unique and memorable figure for any occasion. Don’t take our word for it — check out these five examples:

2. The Beach
Joseph’s first project with BABYLON producer/director Danny Boyle, The Beach stars Leonardo DiCaprio…

Keeping It Weird: 10 Sundance Movies That Came Out of Austin, Texas

The Sundance Film Festival may call Park City, Utah, its home, but there’s another city that’s always been well-represented at the annual movie-geek get-together: Austin, Texas. Not only is Austin known as a hotbed for up-and-coming filmmakers, but the city’s creative vibe jibes well with Sundance’s commitment to discovering talented artists and giving exposure to offbeat voices. Austin means a DIY aesthetic and a laid-back attitude, plus a love of music, the outdoors, beer, and against-the-grain philosophies. Not coincidentally, you can also find all of those qualities in abundance at the Sundance Film Festival.
