Thursday, April 21 2:45-3:30 pm (PT)
Well known as the fast-talking, self-deprecating “Pacey Witter” on “Dawson’s Creek,” Joshua Jackson has been working in front of the camera for almost 20 years.
Jackson’s feature film debut was in Michael Bortman’s “Crooked Hearts.” He has since appeared in the “Mighty Ducks” trilogy, “Cursed,” “Gossip,” “Apt Pupil,” “Cruel Intentions,” “Digger,” “Andre,” “Aurora Borealis,” “Bobby,” “Shutter” and “The Skulls,” as well as in Rose Troche’s critically acclaimed “The Safety of Objects” and the film version of Moises Kaufman’s groundbreaking play “The Laramie Project.” For his work in the Canadian feature film “One Week,” Jackson received the 2010 Genie Award for Best Actor. He has also made cameo appearances in Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s 11,” “Scream 2,” “Urban Legend” and “I Love Your Work.”
Additionally, Jackson enjoyed a successful run on London’s West End starring in “A Life in the Theatre” alongside Patrick Stewart. The acclaimed comedy was written by the Academy Award-nominated and Pulitzer Prize- and Olivier Award-winning David Mamet.
John Noble’s newfound popularity with the international television audience comes after more than 30 years as an acclaimed stage actor and director and distinguished character actor in film.
Noble, best-known worldwide for his award-winning portrayal of “Denethor” in “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King,” began his career on the Australian stage, where he was a leader in the country’s cultural expansion of the 1970s and 1980s. As Artistic Director of the Stage Company of South Australia for 10 years, he produced and directed more than 70 new plays, spent time in London directing “Sons of Cain” in the West End and produced “Percy and Rose” for the Adelaide Festival of Arts.
His most recent television credits in the U.S. include “Journeyman,” “The Unit,” “Stargate SG-1” and a season on “24” as Russian Consul “Anatoly Markhov.” He has appeared on Australian television as “Captain Blackheart” in the children’s series “Pirate Islands: The Lost Treasure of Fiji.”
Noble’s film credits include “One Night with the King” opposite Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif and “The Last Airbender,” as well as the upcoming “Risen,” the story of a featherweight boxing champion overcoming a tragic injury. Noble lent his voice talents to the soon-to-be-released video game “L.A. Noire.
