Joel Bryant was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico where he
got his first acting gig as Officer Rick Foley in "Unsolved Mysteries"
and his first stand-up experience at the age of 17 at Laff's Comedy Cafe. After
winning Outstanding Actor at the New Mexico Theatre Conference, he left his hometown
to pursue acting and comedy in Los Angeles by way of a Pepperdine University on a theatre scholarship. He decided
to graduate in three years; however, always enjoying a challenge, he did it magna
cum laude with 2 majors (theatre and telecommunications). Joel was recently asked back by his alma mater
to teach a Master Class, sharing those duties with Jason Alexander and Daniel
Stern, among others.

you won't find listed on IMDB are Joel's commercials,
but he's been getting
in your head for a while.
In fact, if you bought wood at Lowe's, drove there

or Promos for NBC while surfing the web on your Vaio, chugged a Bud Light and
then did...well, whatever you would use Sysco Systems for, then chances are thoughts

Bryant - Nominated
for Best Actor in a Dramatic Web Series at the 1st Annual Streamy Awards (honoring excellence in web entertainment).
Alas, Joel didn't win. He lost out to Alessandro Guiliani from the "Battlestar
Galactica" online series.
To be fair, Alessandro was great in that series.
He also played both gay AND disabled.
That's a guaranteed Award-getting one-two
Joel was nominated with Lisa Kudrow, Paul Rudd, Neil Patrick Harris, Eva Longoria-Parker,
Rosario Dawson...thankfully not against them.
Much like comparing
the work of a real actor to say a slab of hanging meat or a brick wall or a burnt
out light bulb. I thank you Joel and hope to see you in something where you might
actually have to work your cute butt, I mean your skills, next time.
[Anonymity] is a fun comedy thriller
with a great double act from Randy Tobin and Joel Bryant as detectives Stone and
Green, who deserve their own series.
Official Review Bradford
The scenes between Stone (Randy Tobin) and Green (Joel
Bryant), a well meaning but hapless cop who wants to do things right and a slob
cop who drips his mayo over the case notes, are funny, well written and well paced.
They're just great.

explain to Aunt John that the title BABY BLUES was a reference to postpartum depression
and not JOELs eyes.)

But special mention has to go to
Joel Bryant who, as the manipulative Balthazar really does dominate his scenes
and drag things along marvellously.
But Joel Bryant brings a heaviness, even a weariness to the role
that fits Steven just right.

supporting character played by Joel Bryant is by far the most talented of the
cast and is a joy to watch. The interesting thing is that he was one of the best
things about the film "Gone But Not Forgotten. Netflix.com
