Johann Urb was born in Tallinn, Estonia, on 24 January 1977 into the family of Tarmo and Maris. When Johann was 10, he moved to Finland with his mother and her new husband. They lived in several small towns until they finally settled in Tampere. At the age of 17 Johann moved to his father's in New York, where he soon started a modeling career. In 2001, he landed a small part in the movie Zoolander (2001). After that, he did a role in the short movie Fear of Feathers (2003) and appeared in one episode of CSI: Miami (2002). In 2004, he got a part in the short-running TV-show The Mountain (2004). After that, he appeared as a guest on several TV shows and appeared in more minor film roles. In 2008, Johann got his first big film role in the much-hated The Hottie & the Nottie (2008). In 2009, things seemed to go up when he made a short but memorable appearance as the sexy, heroic pilot in Roland Emmerich's disaster epic 2012 (2009) and played a journalist in the fantasy TV series Eastwick (2009), which brought him critical recognition. At the moment, Johann has two romantic comedies in work.
