Rising star JOEL KINNAMAN (Skyer) has quickly become a highly sought after actor after starring in the Swedish film Snabba Cash, directed by Daniel Espinosa. The film, which was the first installment of a trilogy based on the international bestseller written by Jens Lapidus, is the highest grossing Swedish film ever made. Kinnaman won the 2011 Guldbagge Award (the Swedish equivalent for the Academy Award) for Best Actor for his work in the film. Warner Bros. currently holds the U.S. remake rights to the film.

Kinnaman captured the attention of Hollywood when he screen tested for the lead roles in George Miller's Fury Road for Warner Bros. and Kenneth Branagh's Thor for Paramount. Shortly thereafter, Kinnaman decided to relocate to Los Angeles and he was quickly cast as the male lead in the critically acclaimed AMC series "The Killing,” created by Veena Sud. Kinnaman plays a cop who is forced to team up with the female officer he was supposed to replace in order to solve a heinous crime.

Most recently, Kinnaman completed shooting roles in: the Sony film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo directed by David Fincher; the Universal action thriller Safe House opposite Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds; and the comedy Lola Versus for Fox Searchlight.

In addition to receiving the 2011 Guldbagge Award for Snabba Cash, he received his first nomination for a Guldbagge Award in 2010 for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his role in the Swedish mini-series "Johan Falk.”

Kinnaman, originally from Stockholm, Sweden, is a graduate of the prestigious Swedish Academic School of Drama, whose alumni include Stellan Skarsgard, Peter Stromare and Lena Olin.
