In 2008, Joe made a successful transition from the boxing ring to movie hard man, appearing in several independent films and television dramas, including BBC One’s ‘Hustle’. As Joe gained experience, his acting career went from strength to strength. His big break came when he was personally approached by acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie to play a part in his film ‘Sherlock Holmes’, a dynamic new portrayal of one of Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous characters. Starring alongside Robert Downey Jr. in the lead role of the Baker Street detective and Jude Law as Dr. Watson, Joe played ‘Big Joe’ in the 2009 Hollywood Blockbuster and its sequel, ‘Sherlock Holmes 2’ in 2011.
Quickly gaining a reputation for having a great on screen presence, Joe has appeared in more than 25 movies including ‘Cass’ (2008), ‘Dead Man Running’ (2009) and ‘Freight’ (2010) to name but a few.
There is nothing more this movie hard man loves more than playing the gangster and as a youngster he always dreamed of playing the ultimate Bond villain. Watch out 007!
