Born in Stockholm on November 25, 1979, Joel Kinnaman is one of the new leading actors of the DC/Comics universe. Long before facing Superman and Batman, the young man made his debut in the Swedish series Storsad which made him famous.

In spite of the success, the young man has to wait until 2002 to find more important roles and film sets. That year, he reveals himself to the general public thanks to the thriller The Invisible, which gives a new lease of life to his career. From then on, he was offered more and more roles and filmed in Sweden before exploding on the big screen thanks to the film Easy Money (released in 2010) which allowed him to make a name for himself in Hollywood. American cinema soon opened its arms to him, and the following year, the young man was directed by David Fincher for his adaptation of Millennium: Men Who Didn’t Like Women.

The roles on the other side of the Atlantic were endless for him and after a tour of the Robocop reboot in 2014, he joined the cast of the much-anticipated Suicide Squad alongside Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and Will Smith. Despite the very bad reviews, the film hits the box office. In addition to cinema, the young man also made a place for himself in TV series thanks to House of Cards. Since season 4, he plays Will Conway, Frank Underwood’s Republican opponent.

On the heart side, he secretly married his girlfriend Cleo Wattenström and did not formalize their union until April 2016.
