Hailing from the Caribbean island of Trinidad & Tobago, G. Anthony Joseph is now a working actor and producer in Hollywood CA. His guest-starring credits include the TV series American Family for FOX/GREENBALT/PBS Network with Esai Morales (NYPD Blue), Edward J. Olmos and director Gregory Nava (Selena and Killing Pablo). He also guest starred on the 2002 season premiere of The District with Craig T. Nelson and Ving Rhames for CBS and received another top guest star billing on the Paramount CBS hit show JAG with stars David James Elliott and Catherine Bell directed by Rod Hardy. He also guest starred as Dr. Samson on the PAX / A & E TV special In the Footsteps of the Holy Family with host Roger Moore.
All of the above major credits came after many years of struggling his way up the Hollywood ladder and after earning his SAG card as a featured player on the Warner Brothers hit, the Jamie Foxx show. Many featured roles followed for G. Anthony such as, the ABC hit Just the Ten of Us and the Tom Selleck TNT movie of the week Washington Slept Here.
An acclaimed stage actor, G has performed often with the LA Shakespeare Company and the popular Sacred Fools Theatre portraying such roles as Iago in Othello, Sloinus in Comedy of Errors, the Duke of Milan in Two Gentlemen of Verona. In short, G. Anthony earned his stripes, working his way up to guest star roles with actors who once seemed impossible far away from his small island home in the Caribbean. Recently, since the release of his latest award winning producing venture Contract Killers at the 20th Century Fox premiere in March 2008, G was hired once again as an actor to co-star in the feature film entitled Nephilim as Senator Harden. This 3-picture deal starts filming in Nov. 2010 and stars Hollywood legend John Savage.
G and Tritan-Northstar's Entertainment producing venture Contract Killers, won the Best Feature Film Award at the Orlando Film Festival 2008 in Florida, beating out The Great Buck Howard starring Tom Hanks, John Malkovich and Colin Hanks. This award arrived on the heels of the film receiving the Best Picture Award in September 08 at the BBF Film Festival in Philadelphia and four nominations in July 08 at the Action on Film Festival in Los Angeles, and winning in two categories: Best Action Sequence in a Feature Film and Best Break Out Female Star -- Frida Farrell -- In a Feature Film. The Orlando Best Film Award, along with the BBF Best Picture Award, and two wins at the Action on Film Festival, means that Contract Killers has now racked up four wins against six nominations. Contract Killers was eventually snapped up by US domestic powerhouse First Look Studios and was released across America in January 2009. As of Jan 2010, cable channels Showtime, Starz, Encore, and The Movie Channel have all picked it up for a US cable release and it can now be seen airing on all of those cable networks.
After being involved in the entertainment business for almost 20 years and running the joint venture JoMox Productions that produced one movie of the week, a feature film, four music videos, and a behind-the-scenes documentary, Mr. Joseph, with his growing professional contacts of current stars, executives, and crew personnel, branched off to explore larger ventures. Hence Tritan-Northstar Entertainment was conceived in 2001 to produce a slate 4 to 12 films over the next eight years. With this goal in mind and G. Anthony at the helm as the sole producer, Tritan-Northstar Entertainment currently has four films in world wide distribution that continue to have a presence at all the international film markets . The film's include: "The Eliminator," "The Vault," "Backlash" & "Contract Killers". Films that were co produced by G. Anthony include: "The Biggest Fan" and the soon to be released (in 2010) SF Norge Production entitled "Limbo".
In 1990, as President of JoMox Productions, G. and his wife Ria executive-produced, produced, and starred in the critically acclaimed Men of Gray – Fist Law, the first 2-hour TV movie of the week for Trinidad & Tobago. Directed by Ric Moxley, the surprise hit movie took first place at Pegasus Film & Video Festival and received screening honors at the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame Festival in San Francisco under the watchful eye of notables Spike Lee, Debbie Allen, Robert Townsend, and Keenen Wayans. Their advice to the company: keep G. as the lead actor and shoot a follow- up on film. In response, JoMox Productions produced the 1994 sequel Flight of the Ibis , also directed by Moxley, released theatrically in the Caribbean to critical acclaim. It also aired on Showtime and was released internationally by Artist View Entertainment. The movie can still be seen on many international cable and TV networks, including the famous Movies for Men in the UK.
Joseph was involved in all budgeting, contracts, and marketing from development to execution. He negotiated product placement with McCann Erickson, Lonsdale Saatchi & Saatchi, Subway Foods, Nissan Automobiles, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Fuji Film, Sharp Electronics, and British West Indian Airways, raising over $60,000 (TT) in product placement – a first for a film this size. Joseph headed publicity for the theatrical run, including press releases, interviews, press conferences, touring mall promotions, and the premiere at the Caribbean’s largest chain, Globe Cinemas.
G. Anthony, his wife and VP of Tritan-Northstar Ria Roebuck Joseph, and kids, Justin and Jamie, are directly involved in helping underprivileged youths in Trinidad and Tobago with book drives and creating an open environment on film sets that attracts kids of all ages.
Ria was the executive producer and co - producer on G's first two films Men of Gray and Men of Gray 2 Flight of the Ibis. Mrs. Roebuck also served as asst. producer on Backlash and supervising producer on Contract Killers.
She has stuck by G. Anthony through thick and thin since 1990. Her keen sense of doing business has built the company and G. Anthony to what Tritan-Norsthstar is today.
