A sturdy lead and character actor with a natural affinity for physical roles, Karl Urban was a New Zealand-born performer who rose to popularity with notable roles in "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" (2002) and "The Return of the King" (2003), as well as "The Bourne Supremacy" (2004) and "Doom" (2005). Urban excelled at playing men of action, like the proud horseman in Peter Jackson's fantasy epics and the cold-blooded killer in "Bourne," but fans who took the time to explore Urban's cv found more subtle performances in smaller projects like "The Price of Milk" (2000), which cast him as a romance-minded farmer, or "Out of the Blue" (2006), where he played a small town policeman caught in the middle of a shootout. His adaptability in a variety of genres kept him busy in Hollywood features, which reached a high point when he was cast as Dr. McCoy in J. J. Abrams' origin story for "Star Trek" (2009). It also made him a capable and highly watchable actor whose star continued to ascend with each subsequent project.
