  • Actor August Diehl debuted in productions in his native Germany beginning in the late '90s, and thereafter did the preponderance of his screen work in continentally produced German-language productions. Early projects -- which found Diehl ascending rapidly from bit parts to supporting roles -- included Stefan Ruzowitzky's medical thriller Anatomy (2000) and its 2003 sequel, and Peter Sehr's romantic drama Love the Hard Way (2001). Diehl tackled one of his premier leads in Robert Schwentke's gruesome post-noir thriller Tattoo (2002), as a rookie detective assigned to homicide, where he must solve a bizarre series of ritual murders. Diehl netted international crossover attention and retained lead billing with his work in such critical darlings as Volker Schlöndorff's 2004 psychological dramaThe Ninth Day (as a Gestapo officer) and Stefan Ruzowitzky's The Counterfeiters (2007), as a World War II-era collotype specialist continually interfering with a Nazi counterfeiting scheme.

QUOTES FROM August Diehl CHARACTERS

Major Hellstrom
I must say I grow weary of these monkeyshines. [cocks pistol] Did you hear that? That was the sound of my Walther. Pointed right at your testicles.
Lt. Archie Hicox
Why do you have your Walther pointed at my testicles?
Major Hellstrom
Because you've just given yourself away, Captain. You're no more German than that scotch.
Lt. Archie Hicox
Well Major, that makes two of us. I've had a gun pointed at your balls since you sat down.
Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz
[points a gun Hellstrom's crotch] That makes three of us. And at this range, I'm a real Frederick Zoller.
Major Hellstrom
Looks like we have a bit of a sticky situation here.
Lt. Archie Hicox
What's going to happen, Major... you're going to stand up and walk out that door with us.
Major Hellstrom
No, no, no, no, no, no. I don't think so. I'm afraid you and I, we both know, Captain, no matter what happens to anybody else in this room, the two of us aren't going anywhere. Too bad about Sergeant Wilhelm and his famous friends. If any of you expect to live, you'll have to shoot them too. Looks like little Max will grow up an orphan. How sad.
Lt. Archie Hicox
[in English] Well, if this is it, old boy, I hope you don't mind if I go out speaking the King's.
Lt. Archie Hicox
There's a special rung in hell reserved for people who waste good scotch. Seeing as how I may be rapping on the door momentarily. [drinks scotch] I must say, damn good stuff. Now, about this pickle... we find ourselves in. It would appear there's only thing left for you to do.
Lt. Archie Hicox
[picks up his glass of scotch] There's a special rung in hell reserved for people who waste good scotch. Seeing as how I may be rapping on the door momentarily... [drinks his scotch] I must say, damn good stuff, Sir. [sets his glass down and smokes his cigarette] Now, about this pickle... we find ourselves in. It would appear there's only thing left for you to do.
Major Hellstrom
And what would that be?
Lt. Archie Hicox
Stiglitz.
Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz
Say "auf Wiedersehen" to your Nazi balls. [fires his gun into Hellstrom's crotch]
