Colin Ford as Joe McAlister

Joseph Ernest "Scarecrow Joe" McAlister (b. 1997) is the younger brother of Angie McAlister, and a resident of Chester's Mill.

Using his cellphone, he records episodes of a video blog called "Joe's Blog." In his bedroom, he has hung a Union Jack, a poster of Bob Marley, and a copy of the Periodic Table of Elements. He is a fan of science-fiction, reggae, ska, and chemistry.

On the night that the invisible barrier descended around Chester's Mill, Joe suffered a seizure that was witnessed by his friend Benny Drake, during which McAlister mumbled that "pink stars are falling in lines."

McAlister may be considered a twinner of Joe McClatchey.



In the television series, McAlister was played by Colin Ford.
