The role of Pan Philips in the Canadian movie and resulting CBC TV series "Nothing Too Good For A Cowboy" in 1998 proved a breakout event, gaining Mr. Atherton public notice.  In 2000, he was nominated for a prestigious Gemini Award for ''Best Lead in a Continuing Dramatic Role'' for that role.  He then gained a fan following for his characterization of acerbic F.B.I. Special Agent Myles Leland III on the PAXtv series "Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye."

Equally versatile in comedy or drama, Mr. Atherton  has appeared in numerous movies including "Hollywoodland" and "XIII."  He appeared as famed CIA Director of Covert Ops Frank Wisner alongside such luminaries as Michael Keaton, Alfred Molina, and Chris O'Donnell in the TNT miniseries "The Company" in 2007.  As well as movies and television, he is noted for his stage work and voice acting.

Mr. Atherton is also a successful and talented writer.  In 1997, he won first place for his original work ''A Bowl of Rose Leaves'' in the ''One-Act Play'' category at the Theatre British Columbia's Annual Canadian National Playwriting Competition.  He also wrote the song the character Pan Phillips sings in the movie version of "Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy."  He plays both guitar and harmonica.
