Karl Urban stars in "Priest," alongside Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet and Maggie Q, as Black Hat.

Karl Urban may be best known for his dynamic turn as the Rohan warrior Eomer in the second and third installments of Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, or for his chilling performance as Kirill in Paul Greengrass's "The Bourne Supremacy." Urban recently played Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy in the 2009 sci-fi blockbuster "Star Trek." He also starred in director Tony Kaye's crime drama "Black Water Transit."

Born in Wellington, New Zealand, Urban first appeared on television as a child. Throughout his school years he wrote, directed and starred in many film and stage productions. As a young adult, he continued to pursue his acting career by training and working throughout Australia and Asia in theater, film and television.

Urban landed his feature film debut in "Heaven." He garnered two Best Actor nominations at the New Zealand Film Awards for his work in "Via Satellite" and the critically acclaimed indie "The Price of Milk." Recently, Urban won Best Actor at the Quantas Film Awards for his performance as Nick in "Out of the Blue."

Urban resides in New Zealand and is an avid supporter of Kids Can, an organization that feeds and clothes more than 30,000 New Zealand children who live in poverty.
