This handsome and professorial stage-trained actor is best known to American audiences for his often "hissable" portrayals of duplicitous Germans, Russians and other suspiciously refined Europeans. Freeeman earned a small footnote in Hollywood history playing Rene Belloq, the suave but treacherous French archeologist rival of Harrison Ford's Dr. Indiana Jones, in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981). Primetime soap buffs also may remember him as Gustav Reibmann, head of the shadowy international syndicate The Cartel, who was exceptionally vicious in his attempts to find wartime Nazi booty on "Falcon Crest" (CBS, 1984-85). Freeman embodied slime of another sort as Ivan Ooze, the monstrous villain of "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie" (1995). Though the film was a box-office success, Freeman's heavy make-up made him all but unrecognizable.
