Initially, Stormare's focus was on the stage, spending over a decade with Sweden's acclaimed Royal Dramatic Theater while also making appearances in Swedish film and TV. His first international exposure came in a small supporting role in the film "Awakenings" (1990) starring Robin Williams as Dr. Oliver Sacks, and Robert De Niro as his patient, responding to an experimental treatment.

More successful was his next series regular gig, this one on the first two seasons of "Prison Break" (Fox, 2005-09; 2017-). Stormare continued to make appearances in film and TV, and in 2016, he created the private detective-comedy "Swedish Dicks" (Pop, 2016-) which he also wrote and starred in. Stormare also co-starred in the short-lived American sitcom "LA To Vegas" (Fox 2018) as a disheveled Russian gambler.
