[[caption-width-right:350:Karl Urban, displaying the later mentioned {{Fanservice}}.]] Karl-Heinz Urban (b. 1972) is an actor from UsefulNotes/NewZealand.

He started off in soaps and small-time TV dramas, worked his way up to ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' and local film productions, and now co-stars in Hollywood blockbusters with macho men like BruceWillis.

Probably best known for playing [[TheMcCoy Leonard 'Bones' McCoy]] in the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' film, Éomer in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'', and being '[[HeyItsThatGuy hey, that guy, what's his name again?]]' in over nine thousand of the genre movies you've seen. He also played the title character in ''Film/{{Dredd}}''.

----
!!This actor and his roles provide examples of:

* DeadpanSnarker: As [=McCoy=].
* {{Fanservice}}: He once [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything stuck a microphone]] [[VisualInnuendo in his mouth]] at a Q&A.
* FascinatingEyebrow: A notable quirk of [=McCoy=] which Urban [[PureAwesomeness actually possessed in real life before taking on the role]].
* OneOfUs: Urban is a longtime fan of ''StarWars'', ''Franchise/StarTrek'', ''Series/DoctorWho'', ''JudgeDredd'', video games and ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''.
** He named his child after Franchise/IndianaJones. Dedication.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping
* PlayingAgainstType: Known mostly for action roles, his casting as the comedic and non-combative Bones in ''Star Trek'' was met with a resounding 'wtf?'
* PromotedFanboy: On the set of ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'', Karl Urban passed the time by playing DungeonsAndDragons with VinDiesel, JudiDench and ThandieNewton.
** He's also been a massive fan of ''Star Trek'' since childhood and grew up watching reruns religiously. Chris Pine and Zach Quinto even have an anecdote about him playing with a toy Enterprise ship on a plane before being asked to out it away. He was also a very big fan of ''Judge Dredd'' long before donning the iconic helmet.
* SarcasticDevotee: [=McCoy=] is devoted to Kirk, yet never stops complaining about everything he does.
* ShirtlessScene: Pathfinder
** And in real life, he always seems to have a few extra buttons undone on his shirt.
* {{Troll}}: He promised fans some footage of the sequel to ''Film/StarTrek'' instead we got [[http://www.slashfilm.com/karl-urbans-practical-joke-results-10-seconds-star-trek-2-set-footage/ this.]]
