Joe Barnes is an English actor who played Alex Hammond in The Getaway. To begin with, he also voiced the character, but the director decided he wanted to use someone else to voice the character instead and ended up picking Archie Lawes, the son of Symond Lawes, who was the actor playing Sparky. This is probably due to the fact that Barnes was from Birmingham and spoke with a Brummie accent. Joe therefore, ended up only acting out the scenes with the other cast members. Other than The Getaway he has no other credited acting roles.
