the blockbusters

Berkoff hit mainstream Hollywood between 1983 and 1985 with major roles in Octopussy, Beverly Hills Cop and Rambo.

In Octopussy Berkoff plays the Russian General Orlov, Victor Maitland in Beverly Hills Cop and another Russian, Lt. Col. Podovsky in Rambo.

These started Berkoff´s career as a cinema baddie, the money allowing him to do theatre.

"I realise that Stallone likes the martyred and tortured parts which suit him as he valiantly combats the evil, treacherous world that seeks to subdue him.  It fits into his early life when he constantly batted to sell his work" (from Tough Acts)
