An award winning and highly versatile actor and writer - and a member of the Oscar Academy since 1985, Bo has worked with over 100 Academy Award winners/nominees including Quentin Tarantino and Clint Eastwood.

After Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" and "Inglourious Basterds", the latter Tarantino's version of one of his favorite films of all time, Enzo Castellari's "The Inglorious Bastards" which Bo headlined, Bo has largely focused on his first love - writing.

Bo's novel "A Dream of America" is on Amazon's list of "Preferred Reads" and his screenplays win major awards and sell well.

Born in Sweden to a big band leader mother, Bo emigrated by himself to the US as a teenager and began serving his new country with six years in the U.S. Marines.

After an honorable discharge, he was in pursuit of a Ph.D. in metaphysics when he was spotted by James Hammerstein and cast in a revival of "South Pacific". That led to the lead role as Yang Sun in Bertolt Brecht's play "The Good Woman of Szechuan" at Greenwich Village's Circle in the Square Theatre and a starring role in the CBS TV pilot "The Freebooters" and as Big Swede on "Here Come the Brides".

While still pursuing his Ph.D., his role as the Creature in the three-hour TV movie "Mary Shelley's Original Frankenstein" brought him great acclaim and led to a starring role in the motion picture "Maurie" and as Robert Redford's co-star in "The Great Waldo Pepper".

Other major starring roles followed, the more notably "Walking Tall: Part II", "Walking Tall: Final Chapter" and the "Walking Tall" TV series; "North Dallas Forty"; "The Delta Force"; "Heartbreak Ridge"; and "Magnum, P.I.".

An accomplished athlete, he has competed in world championships, Olympic selections and/or international competition in numerous sports, including judo.

A 5th degree black belt in judo, and a black belt holder in karate as well as aikido, he is past Chairman of USA Judo Masters and has been inducted into the Martial Arts Masters Hall of Fame.

He treasures the three years he spent driving NASCAR.

He was Sports Commissioner at the 2015 Special Olympics World Games - held at UCLA where he had pursued a Ph.D. in metaphysics until his film career took over.

Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Motion Picture Group of America from 1984-2004, he is President and CEO of MagicQuest Entertainment, since 1975 a California corporation engaged in motion picture development and production as well as providing consulting services to actors and script doctoring to writers.

He is a sought-after host and/or Master of Ceremonies, serves as juror by film festivals across the globe, and lectures on creative matters and metaphysics in universities worldwide.
