Acting is an art, and Udo Kier is living proof of the artistic quality and beauty of the cinema. Born in Germany during World War II, Udo’s first hours as an infant were quite frightening. The freshly minted child survived a hospital bombing, setting the proverbial stage of a life in the dramatic arts. After some minor roles in a few films, Udo received a lot of attention for his role as a witch hunter in the violent and bloody horror flick Mark of the Devil (1970). Taking his art to another level, the eccentric actor starred as the title characters in both Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein (1973) and Andy Warhol’s Dracula (1974). Later in his career, Udo completed the hall of fame of horror characters by portraying Dr. Jekyll in The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne (1981) and Jack the Ripper in Lulu (1980). With such a lengthy and impressive resume, it’s surprising that the dedicated thespian has kept his clothes on. The only exception is Udo’s role in My Private Idaho (1991) he shows glimpses of his backside during a homosexual romp. Udo’s career continues to be just as busy and impressive since his inception as an actor. Between movies and voiceovers for animated shows and video games, Udo remains a handsome and intriguing presence in the world of entertainment. We at Mr. Man would just love to see more of his flesh.
