Daniel César Martín Brühl González (born 16 June 1978 in Barcelona, Spain) is a German-Spanish actor.

He began his acting career in the German Soap Opera Forbidden Love in 1995. Good Bye, Lenin! made him a household name in European cinema in 2003, and his role in Inglourious Basterds brought him to international attention, later cemented with his widely acclaimed role as Niki Lauda in Rush. He's also played Helmut Zemo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starting in 2016 with Captain America: Civil War.

He can speak German and Spanish as a native (his father was German TV director and documentalist Hanno Brühl, and his mother is Marisa González Domingo, a Spanish teacher), meaning he can play both nationalities with ease, and he's also fluent in English, French, Portuguese, and Catalan.
