Jürgen Prochnow (born June 10, 1941 in Berlin) is a veteran German-American actor.

The role that made him famous both in his birth country and internationally is the stern but fatherly-to-his-men Captain-Lieutenant Henrich "Der Alte" Lehmann-Willenbrock in the World War II submarine film Das Boot.

He's had roles in an odd variety of productions in his career since then, from Z/B-grade movies to A-grade Hollywoodian blockbusters and television series. He's also kind of pigeonholed into playing villains.
