Joel Kinnaman Headshot

Actor

Birth Date: November 25, 1979

Age: 44 years old

Birth Place: Stockholm, Sweden

A handsome Swedish-American actor who crossed over internationally, Joel Kinnaman became a star in his native country with a starring role in the romantic drama "I skuggan av värmen" ("In Your Veins") (2009) and for his role in the "Johan Falk" (2009) miniseries, for which he earned a Best Supporting Actor Guldbagge Award nomination, the Swedish equivalent of the Oscar. He starred as a man trying to maintain a double life in the thriller "Snabba Cash" ("Easy Money") (2010), which marked the first part of a trilogy and became the highest grossing Swedish film of all time. Subsequently, he was tapped to screen-test for the lead roles in "Thor" (2011) and "Mad Max 4: Fury Road" (2015). In the meantime, he nabbed the juicy role of an inexperienced cop partnered to lead homicide detective Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) on "The Killing" (AMC 2011-13; Netflix, 2014), the American adaptation of the hit Danish murder mystery, which helped Kinnaman book major film roles in such projects as the alien invasion thriller "The Darkest Hour" (2011) and the highly anticipated American adaptation of the global phenomenon "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (2011). He built on those successes by alternating between arthouse prestige films such as Terence Malick's "Knight of Cups" (2015) and starring roles in high-profile hits like "RoboCop" (2014) and supervillain showcase "Suicide Squad" (2016). Kinnaman reprised his role as Colonel Rick Flag in James Gunn's "The Suicide Squad" (2021).
