The Many Faces Of Peter Stormare

Ard Vijn, Associate Editor, Features

This week 22 Jump Street premieres (you can read Jason's review here), starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. Stars are nothing without a good villain, though, and here we have Swedish actor Peter Stormare as a drug dealer called "The Ghost".

With his blunt, hulkish looks, Peter Stormare is often typecast as a soulless monster. Or a hysterical one, eating the scenery. Or just a blunt person with a rude exterior but a heart of gold. Or a sensitive neighbor. Or...

Ehm... that's not really typecasting, is it? It's also not fair to say he's mostly chosen for his memorable appearance, as he is attached to a surprising number of animations and videogames as a voice-actor. A jack-of-all-trades, clearly, as long as acting is involved.

Therefore, once again here is a gallery of twelve close-ups of one of our favorite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images below, and guess which twelve movies they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb.

And I'll post the answers on Thursday, unless someone names them all correctly...
