Film and television
Barnett has appeared in many television and film productions over the years, most usually in 'character roles' rather than starring ones. This has led to his being cast by many high-profile directors, including Gore Verbinski, Martin Scorsese, Bryan Singer, George Miller and Marc Forster. The director Nigel Cole, cast Barnett in three separate films, Calendar Girls, Made in Dagenham and The Wedding Video.
