Life and career

Bleibtreu was born in Munich, the son of Austrian-born parents, actors Hans Brenner and Monica Bleibtreu, and the great-grand-nephew of the actress Hedwig Bleibtreu.

Bleibtreu grew up in Hamburg. His first appearance on TV was in the late seventies on a children's television series called Neues aus Uhlenbusch, written by his mother Monica and Rainer Boldt. This was followed by a role in Boldt's Ich hatte einen Traum and alongside his mother in the miniseries Mit meinen heißen Tränen. After he left school when he was 16, he lived in Paris and New York City where he attended acting school. In 1992, he began his acting career at the Schauspielhaus in Hamburg. He also had numerous small parts in television productions.

His notable roles include the Gray Ghost in the film Speed Racer, Andreas Baader in The Baader Meinhof Complex, Manni in Run Lola Run, and Tarek Fahd in the psychological thriller Das Experiment.

In 2003, he was a member of the jury at the 25th Moscow International Film Festival.[1]

Following wide positive feedback by fans on his Facebook page whether there should be a sequel to Lammbock, a 2001 classic German stoner film, Bleibtreu announced in November 2015 that the sequel would be titled Lommbock filming began in summer 2016.[2][3] The film appeared in 2017.
