Swedish-born actor/director PETER STORMARE (David Spitz) has an international flare that sets him apart from other performers. Working non-stop as of late, Stormare most recently can be seen in the feature films "Anamorph” and in The Weinstein Company's "Unknown.” Previously he starred in "The Brothers Grimm,” opposite Matt Damon, "Constantine,” with Keanu Reeves and "Birth,” with Nicole Kidman. 

In addition, Stormare co-starred in the hit Fox television drama "Prison Break,” executive produced by Brett Ratner. Other television credits include the CBS telefilm "Hitler: The Rise of Evil,” "Watching Ellie” and memorable guest appearances on "Joey” and "Seinfeld.”

Stormare has consistently worked with exceptional directors throughout his career. He appeared in Penny Marshall's "Awakenings,” Steven Spielberg's "Minority Report” and "The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” the Coen brothers' "Fargo” and "The Big Lebowski,” Joel Schumacher's "8MM” and Michael Bay for "Bad Boys II” and "Armageddon.” Other work includes Lars Van Trier's "Dancer in the Dark,” Lasse Hallstom's "Chocolat,” Wim Wenders' "Million Dollar Hotel,” John Woo's "Windtalkers,” Jonas Akerlund's "Spun” and Kevin Donovan's "The Tuxedo.”

He began his acting career in his native land at the Royal National Theater of Sweden under the direction of the legendary Ingmar Bergman where 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 out for his first American feature role. He sustained his work in theater appearing in productions at the Actors Studio and the Public Theater and he became the associate director of the Globe Theater in Tokyo, all while continuing his film work.

Inspired by his passion for music — specifically The Beatles, The Clash and Nirvana — Stormare formed a band called "Blonde From Fargo,” in homage to his breakout role. The five-member rock and roll band includes the guitarist from Roxette, the drummer from Alanis Morissette and the bass player from Slash's Snakepit, with Stormare writing all of the music and playing guitar. The band has performed at Lebowski-Fest as well as touring North America and Europe.
