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.
