Swedish star JOEL KINNAMAN (Alex Murphy) has quickly become sought after in
Hollywood after his debut in the Swedish trilogy Snabba Cash, directed by Daniel
Espinosa. The film, the first of three, based on the international best-selling
series written by Jens Lapidus, was the highest-grossing Swedish film of the
year. Kinnaman won the 2011 Guldbagge Award (the Swedish equivalent of an
Academy Award) for Best Actor for his work in the film.
After he screen tested for the lead roles in George Miller's Fury Road for
Warner Bros. and Kenneth Branagh's Thor for Paramount, he relocated to Los
Angeles. Shortly after his arrival, he won the male lead in the
critically-acclaimed AMC series "The Killing."
After his notable debut in "The Killing," he starred in New Regency's The
Darkest Hour, squeezed in a cameo in David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon
Tattoo, was reunited with director Daniel Espinosa in the Universal
action-thriller Safe House, and managed to try his hand at romantic comedy in
Fox Searchlight's Lola Versus.
Kinnaman has continued to remain incredibly busy. He finished another
installment of Snabba Cash, Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups alongside Natalie
Portman and Christian Bale, and Season 3 of "The Killing," for AMC. This summer
he stars in the Ridley Scott-produced Child 44 for director Daniel Espinosa,
opposite Tom Hardy. He also recently completed the Warner Bros. thriller Run All
Night, starring opposite Liam Neeson, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra.
Kinnaman, originally from Stockholm, Sweden, is a graduate of the prestigious
Swedish Academic School of Drama.
