Following roles in the culture clash comedy "Marry Me & Family" and Til Schweiger's "Honig im Kopf" ("Head Full of Honey"), he was one of three leads in the 2015 release "Halbe Brüder" ("Half Brothers"). Moreover, he dubbed the animated character Rocket Racoon for the German release of the Hollywood blockbuster "Guardians of the Galaxy" (2014).
