"The Killing" Will Not Be Cancelled, But Joel Kinnaman Will Blow Your Head Space in Three

In related news, Joel Kinnaman -- who plays Stephen Holder on "The Killing" -- has also signed on as the lead in a low-budget romantic drama, Lola Versus. He'll play a tattoo artist who breaks it off with a struggling theater actress played by Greta Gerwig. Daryl Wein (Breaking Upwards) is directing. (THR)

And those of you who know Kinnaman only from his role in "The Killing," might be surprised to learn that he's Swedish, he played the lead in Snabba Cash, a huge film in Sweden that's being remade in America (last I heard with Zac Efron) and that the Swedish director of Snabba Cash, Daniel Espinosa, also cast Kinnamon in Safe House with Denzell Washington and Ryan Reynolds. I get the idea that Kinnaman is a BFD in Sweden.

Now, here's where I blow your head space in three. This is Kinnamon in his natural state:

I never would've imagined the guy in that video could play Holder. That's some fine goddamn acting.
