Joel Kinnaman isn't exactly the first person you'd think of when naming international movie stars. Well, that's about to change.
The Swedish actor is best known in the United States for his lead role in AMC's "The Killing," as well as his upcoming gig as RoboCop in the film's upcoming remake. In Europe, he's earned raves for his performance in the Swedish crime thriller "Easy Money," which comes out in the U.S. this week.

But, to blend in, he'll need a steady flow of cash and winds up mixed up in a world of assassins and drug kingpins.
