Joe Walker, born February 6, 1987, was one of the members of the group known as Team Starkid.
Other than Little White Lie and The Trail to Oregon!, he had a major role in every Starkid production up until The Guy Who Didn't Like Musicals, when he retired from acting to receive a business degree.
He is known for his extreme Mr. Fanservice tendencies, even in the most ridiculous of roles, as his parts have shown him as a shirtless, tapdancing Dark Lord, an angsty antihero who loves the circus, and an overly-cocky prince. He quietly contributed the English-language captions for the YouTube releases of the musicals and left in-jokes in them.
Tropes that apply to this actor include:
- Anthropomorphic Personification: Played Joey Richter's penis in Me and My Dick.
- Creator Breakdown: Nick Lang revealed on a livestream in all seriousness that Joe reacted to the election of Donald Trump by falling into a depression and announcing he was quitting acting, moving out of LA and going back to school to get a business degree. He actually went through with it, and unfortunately this is why The Guy Who Didn't Like Musicals is the first Team Starkid show he hasn't appeared in since.
- Cross-Cast Role: Played Umbridge in A Very Potter Sequel.
- Attractive Bent-Gender: Known for being attractive while playing either gender.
- Gym Bunny: He takes his training regimen seriously enough that he apparently had a minor Freak Out! when he asked for a protein bar during a rehearsal and someone tried to substitute a Snickers. (This is the origin of the Creator In-Joke about Tom Riddle's hatred of Snickers in A Very Potter Senior Year.)
- Mr. Fanservice: He is well known for this trope among the fangirls. His shirtless debut as Voldemort probably didn't help very much.
