"I would rather have a scene-stealing bit part than a lead role."

Karl-Heinz Urban (born June 7, 1972) is an actor from New Zealand (he is half-German, as you can maybe tell from his first name). He is married to fellow Kiwi Natalie Wihongi, who was his makeup artist on the 2000 TV movie The Privateers. The couple has two sons, Hunter and Indiana.

He started off in soaps and small-time TV dramas, worked his way up to Xena: Warrior Princess and local film productions, and now co-stars in Hollywood blockbusters with macho men like Bruce Willis, Vin Diesel and The Rock.

Probably best known for playing Leonard 'Bones' McCoy in the 2009 Star Trek film, ╔omer in The Lord of the Rings, and being '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 Dredd and was one of the leads in TV series Almost Human.
