* FakeNationality
** He played an [[TheMafia Italian Mafia boss]] in ''Series/PrisonBreak''. [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent Not that his accent was much of a clue]].
** He un-pimped many autos portraying a German engineer with a fake German accent butchering rapper lingo in a Volkswagen ad campaign for the Golf GTI.
** The German nihilist in ''Film/TheBigLebowski''.



* IronyAsSheIsCast: Yep; he's a devout Christian. Presumably this gave him insight into how to play Satan.



* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: During the filming of ''Film/{{Fargo}}'', he would take anyone else who had a day off to different parts of Minnesota to experience the overly Swedish-saturated culture with him firsthand, a culture he described as being "[[TheThemeParkVersion More Sweden than Sweden]]". He said that many of these experiences caused him to become overwhelmed and cry. One experience he related in the documentary ''Minnesota Nice'' was of an old man he met who spoke in a very particular dialect that helped him correctly determine where his ancestors had come from.

* LargeHam: He acts in a very over the top fashion, and it usually makes the characters he plays much creepier for it, as they seem like they're genuinely insane.
