"[A] legendary actor who needs no introduction. He may be the only guy in the world who could pull off appearing in both The Seventh Seal and Rush Hour 3."

Carl Adolf "Max" von Sydow (born 10 April 1929) is a Swedish veteran character actor with a career spanning more than six decades. After getting his break in Swedish movies, notably in Ingmar Bergman's works such as The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries and Through a Glass Darkly, he began working internationally in the mid-60s. Over the decades, he's played (among many others) Jesus, a fairly badass servant of Jesus, Satan, Blofeld, Ming The Merciless, Liet-Kynes and Robin Hood's dad, and has done so in half a dozen different languages. He's been nominated for an Oscar twice, for Pelle the Conqueror in 1987 and for Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close in 2012.

Von Sydow currently lives in France and holds dual Swedish and French citizenship. Despite appearances he is, by his own admission, an awful chess player.
