Australian actor Damien Garvey is the performer who will bring Doc Antle’s character to life in “Joe vs. Carole.” Per his IMDb profile, it appears he will only show up for one of the eight episodes in the Peacock limited series. An actor with an extensive list of film and television credits, Garvey got his start in the late 1990s, making his first on-screen appearance in the Australian TV series “Medivac” (also known as “Adrenalin Junkies”). From there, he has gone on to work consistently across the Australian and American film industries, with roles on “Rake,” “Underbelly,” “McLeod’s Daughters” and more. Beyond his acting, Garvey is also a former musician, having released two albums in the late 1980s with the Australian rock band, Neighbourhood Unit.
Some of Garvey’s most notable roles to date include a two-episode stint as Mr. Roper on “Ash vs Evil Dead,” as well as his role as Tom Boylan in “Terra Nova” and his role as Chief Yarborough on HBO’s “The Leftovers.” One of his most consistent roles is that of Stan in the Guy Pearce-fronted “Jack Irish” series of TV shows and made-for-TV movies.
Audiences can catch Garvey as Doc Antle in the first episode of “Joe vs. Carole” when it debuts on Peacock on March 3.
