Guido’s Scrapbook

“7 8 9 Out,” filmed in Munich, in which Guido plays a boxer named Hannes Roll, who has just come out of the Olympics and is striving to make it as a pro fighter. To prepare for this role, Guido spent 6 months training with the 1992 German Olympic Team in Berlin.

German actor Guido Foehrweisser starred in a great number of European and German theater plays, television shows, and motion pictures, before he came to the United States to further his acting career six years ago.

Since then, he has been a guest star on prominent American TV shows, such as The X-Files and Martial Law, and could be seen in a number of feature films, including Crime of The Century (starring Isabella Rossellini and Academy Award winner Stephen Rea), GIA (starring Academy Award winning actress Faye Dunaway and Angelina Jolie), and most notably in the Emmy award winning James Dean (starring Golden Globe winner James Franco).

Most recently he was cast for a role in the upcoming 20th Century Fox comedy Just Married (starring Brittany Murphy and Ashton Kutcher), which will open in theaters this spring.

Guido serves as a co-producer for the film Reversal. He and James Petulla are currently working on developing a heart-warming film that is set in his home state North-Rhine-Westphalia and Berlin, Germany. This will be their second project under their company, titled: “The German American Friends High Day Entertainment.” This production is set to start production some time next year and will be filmed primarily in Germany.

As a sword and fencing master, Guido has choreographed and directed theatricals and operas such as Romeo & Juliet, the Musketeers, Carmen, Othello and many others.

Guido Foehrweisser is a frequently invited guest of the legendary Actors Studio, West, in Los Angeles.
