** The actor who plays Ivan Drago in ''RockyIV'' is Creator/DolphLundgren, a Swede.
** Creator/PeterStormare, another Swede, was one of the only good things about ''Film/{{Armageddon}}'' with his psychotic cosmonaut character. He also got to be a Russian in ''BadBoys II'' and ''Playing God''. He was also a Soviet MadScientist in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3''. Apparently he plays a convincing enough Russian to do it over and over.
