Since the start of his career, DANIEL BRUHL (Niki Lauda) has been involved in a number of critically acclaimed film and television projects, garnering praise for his talent and versatility. With several exciting projects in the next 12 months, including two breakthrough roles, Bruhl firmly establishes himself as someone one to watch.

Bruhl can be seen next in Bill Condon's The Fifth Estate, where he stars as Daniel Domscheit-Berg, a colleague and friend of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Based on the novel of the same name written by Domscheit- Berg, the film follows the friendship and eventual rift between the two men as the international profile of the web site suddenly explodes, bringing instant fame and gradual disillusionment to its creators. The film will be released in the U.S. on October 18.

In November, Bruhl will appear in Anton Corbijn's thriller A Most Wanted Man, starring opposite Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright and Philip Seymour Hoffman. He will then take on the lead role of young journalist Sebastian Zollner in Wolfgang Becker's Ich und Kaminski.

Bruhl is best known to international audiences for his scene-stealing turn playing German war hero Fredrick Zoller in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, opposite Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz. The film was nominated for eight Academy Awards in 2010.

Bruhl is an established, award-winning actor in Europe. In 2003, he starred as Alexander Kerner in Good Bye Lenin!, a German tragicomedy set in 1989 East Germany. Bruhl gave a heartbreaking performance as a young man protesting against the regime, while desperately trying to protect his frail mother from the truth. He won a 2003 European Film Award and the German Film Award for Actor of the Year for his performance.

Bruhl's other notable film credits include The White Sound; Ladies in Lavender, in which he made his English-speaking debut, opposite Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith; Stephane Robelin's All Together, with Jane Fonda and Geraldine Chaplin; Love in Thoughts, for which he won the European Film Awards' Audience Award for Best Actor; The Edukaters, for which he was nominated for Best Actor at the 2004 European Film Awards; Joyeux Noel; Salvador Puig Antich; The Bourne Ultimatum; Julie Delpy's The Countess; and In Tranzit, with John Malkovich.

Bruhl is fluent in German, English, Spanish and French.
