Biography

Yorick van Wageningen spent his early career appearing in Dutch films and TV series but since 2005 has enjoyed a growing presence in Hollywood. Wageningen broke into acting in 1989 with a recurring role on the Dutch primetime soap opera "Spijkerhoek" and spent years balancing minor TV appearances with prominent stage roles. In 2000 Wageningen caught a major break when he reprised his role as a drug-addicted gambler on the run from his past in the feature film adaptation of the play "Total Loss" in the feature film adaptation. Though the movie was a box-office disaster, Wageningen's performance caught director Steven Spielberg's eye and eventually landed him several Hollywood offers. After earning notice for his role as a mysterious CIA agent in the humanitarian drama "Beyond Borders", Wageningen landed a breakout role as battle-scarred criminal The Guv in the sci-fi action film "The Chronicles of Riddick" and portrayed a calculating English captain in Terrence Malick's epic historical drama "The New World". He returned to The Netherlands in 2008 for his role as a World War II resistance fighter in the award-winning drama "Winter in Wartime", and has since been cast as a sadistic parole officer in the Hollywood remake of the Swedish blockbuster "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo".
