PETER STORMARE (Hjelmstad) began his acting
career in his native Sweden at the Royal National Theater of Sweden under the
direction of Ingmar Bergman. He performed leading roles in Long Day's Journey
Into Night, Miss Julie, King Lear and Hamlet. It was while
performing Hamlet in New York that Stormare was embraced by American
audiences and was sought for his first American feature film roles.
Stormare continued his work in theater while his film career took off,
appearing in productions at the Actors Studio and The Public Theater. At the
same time, he became the Associate Director of the Globe Theater in Tokyo.
Stormare's feature film credits include Awakenings, Girl 6, Mercury
Rising, Playing God, Flirting with Disaster and Joel and Ethan
Coen's critically acclaimed Fargo. The success of Fargo prompted
Stormare to move from New York to Los Angeles with his wife, Toshimi. He has
since appeared in Steven Spielberg's The Lost World, the Coen brothers'
The Big Lebowski, Joel Schumacher's Eight Millimeter and Michael Bay's
Armageddon. Stormare recently appeared in Lars von Trier's Dancer in the Dark
and Wim Wenders' Million Dollar Hotel. Upcoming films include Steven
Spielberg's Minority Report, Happy Campers, and Spun.
