Janne Hyytiäinen Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Tall, handsome, and slightly brooding Finnish actor Janne Hyytiäinen is best known for his collaborations with arthouse director and tragicomedy maestro [[Performer~P96912~Aki Kaurismäki~akikaurismäki]]. The actor and director first paired up for [[Performer~P96912~Kaurismäki~akikaurismäki]]'s haunting and bitterly funny fable [[Feature~V265459~The Man Without a Past~themanwithoutapast]] (2002). Hyytiäinen's part in that picture merely constituted a bit role, but circa 2006, [[Performer~P96912~Kaurismäki~akikaurismäki]] summoned him to portray a lead -- that of security guard Koistinen -- in the Hopper-esque picture [[Feature~V348260~Lights in the Dusk~lightsinthedusk]] (2007). For this turn, Hyytiäinen earned frequent physical comparisons, in the American press, to [[Performer~P61810~Mickey Rourke~mickeyrourke]] -- though the actor's onscreen evocation of a hapless and naïve loser constituted a truly original creation, virtually unparalleled in American filmdom. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
