Biography - J.David Hinze

An American/German actor known for his disturbing on screen presence and his deep, smooth voice. He is often the highly intelligent, dominant male pushed to the edge. From modern cult-leader to 16th-century King of Spain, Police Director to psychopathic-pediatrician who takes revenge on child abusers or a Nazi-sympathizing farmer in 1940s Germany, the former real-life 'Fortune 500' Senior-Management-Consultant, Key-Account-Manager and Opera-Director has lived in Europe for most of his adult life.

He can be seen on screen with Nick Nolte, Matt Dillon, Emily Mortimer and Jacqueline Bisset in Til Schweiger's HONEY IN THE HEAD. Also in 2019, he played in GUNS AKIMBO (Daniel Radcliffe & Samara Weaving) and joins the cast of Paolo Sorrentino's THE NEW POPE (Jude Law, John Malkovich & Sharon Stone).

Before returning to acting after a twenty-seven-year hiatus, in the worlds of IT and business, he directly consulted/advised Country-Managers, CFOs, CROs and other directors at the top of the corporate hierarchy, on global business and IT projects worth tens of millions of dollars for German luxury automobile manufacturers and their finance banks in Europe and the U.S.

In the world of opera, he lived and worked behind the 'Iron Curtain' at the internationally renowned 'Semperoper' in Dresden (in the now defunct German Democratic Republic) making him one of only a very few Americans who observed that political/social system from within and making him unique among internationally active American actors.

For four-and-a-half years, he was also counselor/advisor/caregiver for refugees who had fled the Taliban in Afghanistan as well as those who had escaped the carnage of the war in Yugoslavia.

He has been described by producers and directors he has worked with as gracious, intelligent, funny, charming, erudite, aristocratic, an entrepreneur type, self-made man, friendly, warm-hearted and open. Since returning to acting, he has appeared or will appear in TV and film productions shot in the U.K., the U.S., Germany, Italy, Austria, Canada, Switzerland, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Azerbaijan.

With his finely tuned, classically-trained 'musician's ear', he is known to be able to convincingly master any accent and to portray characters in any language. He speaks native level English and German as well as fluent Italian.

As one of Europe's most sought-after English Language voices, he can be heard internationally representing such global heavyweights as Red Bull, Porsche, BMW, AUDI, Mercedes-Benz, Adidas, Bugatti, Amazon, Google, SAP, SKY, Discovery, Swatch, Mini Cooper and others.

From 2017 to 2018 he reduced his mass by 40 pounds (20 Kilos) while putting on muscle, returning to his athletic figure and weight as a former university scholarship-athlete.
