Stepping into his first major daytime role, Joe Barbara joined the cast of Another World in February 1995 as Bay City Police Captain Joe Carlino. As Bay City’s police chief, Joe devotes his life to fighting crime and, until recently, he also had to fight to keep his marriage to Paulina Cory from falling apart. After a series of misunderstandings, Joe and Paulina have succeeded in resolving their differences and their marriage is stronger than ever.
Barbara has extensive stage credits, including the role of Danny Zuko in the hit Broadway revival of Grease. While working on Another World, Barbara did what few other daytime actors have done: he successfully carried a heavy daytime schedule while simultaneously starring in eight shows a week on Broadway. His other stage work includes two years as Dominick Fabrizi in the popular off-Broadway show Tony and Tina’s Wedding. His television credits also include a featured role on The Cosby Mysteries and co-hosting the 25th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on NBC.
Barbara earned a B.S. in television and film production at Syracuse University. His first job out of college was as a production assistant at Entertainment Tonight in New York. Barbara is a native of New Smyrna Beach, Fla. He enjoys music, especially Elvis, Frank Sinatra and assorted “oldies.” He also plays guitar and writes country songs. Barbara’s birthday is December 5.
