"Tatort" from Ludwigshafen: Götz Otto played the captain – he was also a "Bond" villain

Did you recognize the face of Hajo Kessler, the Bundeswehr captain at yesterday's Ludwigshafen "crime scene"? No wonder, because this inconspicuous-looking man, who starred in the popular Sunday evening thriller with the inspectors Lena Odenthal (Ulrike Folkerts) and Johanna Stern (Lisa Bitter), is no stranger.

In this "crime scene" the actor Götz Otto played the role of a suspicious Bundeswehr captain who is said to have kidnapped, killed and burned an investment banker. Although he admits to having been fishing near the scene of the crime, the soldier is otherwise not particularly cooperative with the investigators. While Kessler is under interrogation, his superior, Lieutenant Colonel Limbach, is also kidnapped - just like the previous victim was kidnapped by a man in camouflage suit.

If the Hauptmann (played by Götz Otto) looked familiar to you, there are several good reasons: Through his role as henchman of Elliot Carver, a villain and Bond antagonist in the secret agent film "James Bond - Tomorrow Never Dies" he gained his acting breakthrough - and of course international fame.

His filmography includes roles in well-known international and national blockbusters such as "Cloud Atlas", "The Devil's Dance", "Downfall", "The Wandering Whore", "Urmel aus dem Eis" and of course in "Tatort". He also had a role in the historical drama film "Schindler's List", which Steven Spielberg directed in 2003. The film won seven Oscars and three Golden Globe Awards.

Götz Otto is a German actor who was born in Frankfurt in 1967. After completing his high school diploma, Götz Otto moved to the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz and then to the Otto Falckenberg School in Munich. Even during his training he took on roles at the Schillertheater in Berlin and at the Kammerspiele in Munich.
