Handsome German actor Til Schweiger was voted one of the Most Erotic Male Actors in a 2000 poll in Germany's Cinema magazine. After his film debut in the comedy Manta, Manta, he won an award for Best Young Actor at the 1993 Max Ophüls Festival. He has since built up acting credits in dozens of German and international movies, in addition to work as a writer, director, and producer. On the small screen, he has appeared on some of Germany's most popular TV series and appeared as himself on Pop 2000. After his first starring role in Maybe...Maybe Not in 1994, he stuck with comedies until he found a place for himself in action-thrillers and dramas. He combined genres for the road movie Knockin' on Heaven's Door in 1997; he co-authored the screenplay and won an award from the Moscow Film Festival for his lead performance. The next year he stayed behind the scenes to direct Der Eisbär (The Polar Bear). Returning to acting, he quickly gained international appeal with Bandyta and eventually ended up in Hollywood for small roles in The Replacement Killers, Judas Kiss, and SLC Punk. He went on to star in the comedy Magicians, the action-thriller Driven, and What to Do in Case of Fire. In 2003, he stuck with Hollywood for U-Boat, Sea Devils, and Lara Croft and the Cradle of Life: Tomb Raider 2. Over the coming years, Schweiger would continue to remain active on screen, appearing in films like Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo and Inglorious Basterds.

QUOTES FROM Til Schweiger CHARACTERS

Martin Brest says: You've never seen the ocean? Don't you know what happens when you get to heaven? In heaven, all they talk about is the ocean. How gorgeously beautiful it is. And all the sunsets that they saw. How you could feel the sun lose its strength. And how the cool water splashed forward and the only fire left was the fire in their souls. And you? You can't say a thing, because you've never been there. Up there, you'll be nothing but a fucked-up outsider

Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz says: I will put this pistol in your Nazi balls.

Major Hellstrom says: 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 says: Why do you have your Walther pointed at my testicles?

Major Hellstrom says: Because you've just given yourself away, Captain. You're no more German than that scotch.

Lt. Archie Hicox says: Well Major, that makes two of us. I've had a gun pointed at your balls since you sat down.

Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz says: [points a gun Hellstrom's crotch] That makes three of us. And at this range, I'm a real Frederick Zoller.

Major Hellstrom says: Looks like we have a bit of a sticky situation here.

Lt. Archie Hicox says: What's going to happen, Major... you're going to stand up and walk out that door with us.

Major Hellstrom says: 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 says: [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 says: 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 says: [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 says: And what would that be?

Lt. Archie Hicox says: Stiglitz.
