Moritz Johann Bleibtreu German pronunciation: [ˈmoːʁɪts ˈblaɪptʁɔʏ]; born 13 August 1971) is a German actor.
Life and career
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.
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 will be titled Lommbock and in summer 2016, filming will begin.
