Date of Birth : Sep 6th 1972
Hütz made his film debut in the 2005 film Everything Is Illuminated, playing the character Alex. Hütz secured the role after a chance meeting with director Liev Schreiber, to discuss the film’s music. This ended what had been an extensive search by Schreiber and the casting director for the right person to play Alex. In addition to starring in Everything Is Illuminated, Hütz wrote and performed (as part of Gogol Bordello) some of the music for the film’s soundtrack. Much of Gogol Bordello makes a cameo appearance in an early scene in the movie.
Hütz is also the subject of the 2006 documentary, The Pied Piper of Hützovina. Directed by Pavla Fleischer, The Pied Piper of Hützovina chronicles Hütz’s annual trip across Ukraine and Eastern Europe exploring his musical and cultural roots.
In 2008, Hütz starred as the lead character in Filth and Wisdom, the film that marks Madonna’s directorial debut which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival on February 13, 2008.
