BAD COMPANY

PETER STORMARE (Adrik Vas) recently co-starred as Serge Muscat in the highly-acclaimed "Chocolat," directed by Lasse Hallstrom, as well as in "Windtalkers," "Minority Report," and the forthcoming features "Spun," "The Beatle Fan" and "13 Moons."

Stormare achieved widespread recognition — and an MTV Movie Award nomination— portraying the bumbling, mute criminal in Joel and Ethan Coen's acclaimed "Fargo," and re-teamed with the filmmakers, starring in "The Big Lebowski." He has also appeared in director Joel Schumacher's "Eight Millimeter" with Nicolas Cage, and in producer Jerry Bruckheimer's "Armageddon."

His film credits also include Harold Becker's "Mercury Rising," Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park: The Lost World," David O. Russell's "Flirting With Disaster," Robert Lepage's "Le Polygraphe," Spike Lee's "Girl 6," Louis Malle's "Damage," Penny Marshall's "Awakenings," Lars Von Trier's "Dancer in the Dark" starring Bjork, and Ingmar Bergman's "Fanny and Alexander" and "Bacchanta."

Along with his success in the United States, Stormare continues to work in his native country of Sweden. He starred in the title role of the Scandinavian thriller "Hamilton," also featuring Mark Hamill and Lena Olin, which broke box office records in Sweden and Norway.

Stormare, who began his career at the Royal National Theatre of Sweden, performed under the director of Ingmar Bergman for 11 years and appeared in many world touring productions of "King Lear," "Hamlet," "Miss Julie," "Long Day's Journey Into Night" and "Bacchanta."

In 1990, Stormare became the associate artistic director at the Tokyo Globe Theatre and directed productions of "Hamlet," "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "A Comedy of Errors" and "Miss Julie." He also directed "Dance of Death" in London and "Miss Julie" in New York. In the summer of 1993, Stormare moved to New York and appeared in English productions of "Rasputin" at the Actors Studio, and with Frances McDormand in Liz Egloff's "The Swan" at The Public Theatre.

Other feature film credits include "Circus," "The Million Dollar Hotel," "Love in the Mirror," "Purgatory," "Playing God," "Somewhere in the City," "Black Easter," "Double Dream," "The Frozen Leopard," "Seppan," "Old Times" and "Dirty Hands." For television, he has appeared on "Seinfeld" and most recently on "Watching Ellie," and, in Sweden, on Ingmar Bergman's "Larmar och gor sig till."

Stormare and his wife currently reside in California.
