Joel Kinnaman BioGraphy

This Swedish actor  (full name – Charles Juel Nordström Kinnaman) was born on November 25, 1979 in the capital of Sweden, Stockholm. His parents – Bitta and Steve Kinnaman – had nothing to do with cinema. Yuel has five sisters, one of whom, Melinda, also became an actress. Since childhood, Kinnaman has dual citizenship – Swedish and American, since the actor’s father is an American of British and German descent, who left the United States during the Vietnam War. After graduating from high school, Juel entered the Theater Academy in the Swedish city of Malmö, and then played for more than four years at the Gothenburg City Theater.


His’s career as an actor began in 2002 when he starred in the Swedish film Invisible. But recognition and success came to him only in 2009, when he played one of the roles in the film “Easy Money” by Daniel Espinosa, based on the novel by Jens Lapidus. Yuel played the role of the naive student Johan in it, and after the premiere of the film at the Berlinale, Kinnaman began to be recognized all over the world. In 2011, Yuel joined the cast of the adaptation of Stig Larsson’s book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and starred opposite Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. The film by David Fincher was warmly received by critics and audiences and even received an Oscar for Best Editing.

In 2012, Kinnaman worked with Daniel Espinosa again, this time in the action movie Cape Town Access Code, in which Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington starred. In 2012, the sequel to Easy Money, Crazy Money: A Luxurious Life, was released, in which Yuel returned to his role as Johann “Y.W” Westlund.


In 2014, Kinnaman landed the lead role in the sci-fi action movie Robocop by Jose Padilla, a remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 film of the same name. The film tells about a policeman who, as a result of a government experiment, wakes up in the body of a cyborg and begins to fight crime in the city. The film received mixed reviews from critics. The film has a 49% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Suicide Squad

In 2016, DC and Warner Bros. released the long-awaited action movie about the anti-heroes of the city of Gotham “Suicide Squad”. The project attracted attention not only with a large number of comic book characters, but also with a stellar cast – Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Will Smith, Cara Delevingne and Jai Courtney played in the film. Kinnaman played a character named Rick Flag in it. This character was created by Robert Kaniger and Ross Andrew, according to the idea, he was a fighter during the Second World War, and after – a member of Task Force X. Despite the high box office of the film, it was crushed by critics and nominated for the “Golden Raspberry”. It is interesting that the “Suicide Squad” somehow managed to take the “Oscar” in the same year, however, only for the best make-up.

In 2017, a sequel to Suicide Squad was announced, in which the same actors will play. Yuel will also return to his usual role.

Kinnaman can also be seen in Altered Carbon and the controversial House of Cards opposite Kevin Spacey. Later, Yuel admitted that he was not surprised by the actor’s behavior, and among his friends, many encountered Spacey’s obscene behavior.
